Summer, Summer, Summer.... such prettier colors and fabulous fabrics: linen, silk, cottons.. beach clothes, dress cloths that can be seen, sandels and strappy hills.

Nothing looks worse then an evening dress dangling out of the bottom of a coat, mink or otherwise with strappy shoes. The Presidential Inaugural this year took place with an ice storm and women looked so silly with their Manolos and minks, dresses hanging out trying not to slip on the ice.

agreed!! summer is the best! I always dress my best in the summer. When it's winter, the only thing people see is your overcoat. And that can get old. When I was in London for the winter last year, I wore my blue coat, accessorized with gloves, scarf, and chanel earmuffs. But there's only so much you can do in the winter. Summer is still my fav.

I love brown for summer, it looks fabulous with a healthy tan....unfortunately people always associate it with autumn.

The more I think about this, the more I realize I can't dress worth sh*t during the summer.

As much as I love Summer, I'd have to say Winter. I feel more confident. In the Summer, especially in 40 degrees heat, I am sort of obliged to wear shorts/shirt skirts and just well, ...I get incredibly self conscious.

Plus, winter is so versatile! The layering, the jeans, the blazers..I dunno.

Add another vote for winter. Personally, I hate the summer months. Not only because of the tropical climate I live in, but because style-wise (in terms of colors, material) I have a lot more to work with during the fall and winter. I've never been comfortable in summer clothing-- bright colors, sandals and skimpy shirts, little clothing in general, etc. Bleh... it's never been my thing.

Black in summer is great with florals. I think I like all seasons' dress equally because I dress with the same pieces all year round -- I don't like ugly winter coats though.

Most of my wardrobe is winter stuff. And I just feel so boring during the summer. I love to layer and wear jackets and stuff, and that's impossible here right now.

Well I guess I'd go with winter. Sometimes the summer can get so hot that I just say, "screw it, I'll just wear shorts and a tank top". Not so creative.
