Ruth Shaw

<strong>Name:</strong> Ray Mitchener, owner of Ruth Shaw
<br><br>
<strong>Prediction for spring fashion trends:</strong> "Bold florals, brights and color blocking -- royal blue pants with a black and white bold blouse. Also, sheers -- a sheer panel on pants or a sheer tunic over a slinky dress."
<br><br>
<strong>Dos or don'ts:</strong> "Always the same one. Never, ever, ever wear stockings with open-toe shoes. And women of a certain age should give up on the holey jean look -- you know who you are. But my all-time biggest fashion don't ... stop wearing gym clothes all day long!"
<br><br>
<strong>Go-to item for spring:</strong> "A great blazer over just about anything. And don't forget your summer scarves -- very chic."
<br><br>
<strong>Spring pieces available right now:</strong> Rag & Bone white Jefferson Blazer ($79) -- "Textured and cool, adds a finished look to everything." J Brand Ready to Wear Marisa Dress in black ($495) -- "Like having a slinky dress under a chiffon tunic ... very hip."
