Going places in style.

Spring is here, and you've got places to go - family gatherings, graduations, weddings or maybe a girls' weekend away.

How about packing up some of the latest trends?

If you shop for just one new outfit this season, make it a dress. Dresses are perfect for work or play, and are being shown in all lengths, shapes and fabrics. Toss a wrap or shrug over your shoulders and you're ready to go.

Romantic, flowy fashions are still popular, and you'll find florals in full bloom. If you're going for a more casual look, try a pair of embellished jeans. Match them with soft layers - a lacy sweater over a cami.

Worcester Living got some ideas about what to bring on a weekend trip from Coldwater Creek at the Shoppes at Blackstone Valley. Marina Santosuosso and Kris Kiley from Karon Shea Model Management modeled the fashions at the Hilton Garden Inn in Worcester.
