Are you a mod or a rocker?

Few people I encounter are more qualified to talk about trends than Chelsea Perryman. As visual manager at a major clothing retailer, she's responsible for leading a team of merchandisers who style mannequins and create eye-catching in-store displays. With spring on the horizon, "denim is back and so are the 70s, satin neck scarves, and lots of suede. There's also a very feminine Romantic-era trend coming back in, with loose silhouettes and soft lace," Perryman says. "For me, the classic clean-cut mod look will continue. Razor-sharp bangs and a powerful shade of lipstick, she says, are "a winner every time."
