Heather Steall married them neatly with a plain white T-shirt and full black-and-white skirt. Then she threw in a little orange around her ankle, for a funky color pop. Age: 38 Residence: Midtown / Mount Vernon Job: Financial aid adviser Self-described style: "Trendy / classic.

Traditionally, holiday party dressing falls in one of two camps: jewel brights for the see-my-holiday-spirit types, and basic black for those less inclined to look like a Christmas ornament.But recent years have seen a new contender making a strong move to become a holiday classic white.It's been a springtime after-hours favorite for years.

It's a little-known fact that Philadelphia - the City of Brotherly Love, the Liberty Bell and a host of historical landmarks - is also a city of style. Downtown Philly, where hip young urbanites hang out, has become home to trendy boutiques and stylish retail chains over the past few years. What's more, most of them can be found on one major thoroughfare: Walnut Street. Call it Philadelphia's answer to San Francisco's Post Street or Chicago's Michigan Avenue - a string of shops that offer something for everyone.
