This week is a preview of the SCOUT Spring/Summer 2012 color stories… Dive into two-color and multi-color stories accented with standby seasonal neutrals like white and off-white and classic navy. This spring, SCOUT is all about color – for your spring wardrobe, let there be bright.

TRAVEL OUTFITS:

In conquering the challenge of dressing for travel, we recommend a nice, comfortable pair of jeans in a not-so-tight and not-so-heavy fit and fabric. This way you can transition easily state to state or country to country… also consider jeans in a hot pink hue a ‘neutral’ for the season.
