Is spring here yet? Sadly no, but it is that time of the year when shoppers look to escape the deepest, dourest days of winter by brightening up the wardrobe, and Saks Fifth Avenue is gambling that chartreuse is the color to do the trick.
Truly, this yellow-green is one of the most difficult colors to pull off, and the labels?possibly even more so. A big bow-front lace dress from Moschino leads the pack, but um...what about that clingy, velvet column number by Calvin Klein Collection? Like, whoa; the only person who could even possibly attempt getting away with it is Tilda Swinton, but the fact that it already makes the mannequin appear to have a little paunch is a bad omen indeed.
