Dreaming of balmy spring and summer weekends means looking to clothes that will suit the changing fashion climate. The rules of dressing have been relaxed and the season ahead is based on soft, easy pieces. The graceful blouse, the longer tunic vest and the flowing pants put body and mind into a languid mood. Nothing could be easier.

If you're a fan of fashion magazines, you've almost certainly heard a lot about a popular trend for spring -- the tunic. And if you're like some people, you might not know the origin of the tunic, which has been around a while. A quick check of the dictionary helps a little: A tunic is a loose, gown-like garment (often worn by men and women in ancient Greece), or a blouse or garment extending to the hips or lower. Hmmm. Maybe the long gown thing worked for Zeus and Athena, but it doesn't sound too flattering for us. Apparently, though, the shorter version is. Fashion experts assure that the tunic is extremely flattering for all body types, and is a stylish, versatile and comfortable fashion choice not just for this season, but for summer and fall as well.

Sitting among an alert crowd of fellow young adults from the Balkans, Victoria Daskalova gazes critically at Ana Vojinic-Tunic during a debate over the value of requiring children to wear school uniforms. "We believe in freedom of expression and don't think school uniforms are necessary," Vojinic-Tunic argues. After analyzing both sides, Daskalova soon concludes that Vojinic-Tunic's speech does not match a previous one by Katya Georgieva of the team arguing in favor of uniforms. A group of four attentive Macedonians disagrees, saying that Vojinic-Tunic's side was far more persuasive.

Talk about your bright and shiny shindig! The Baltimore School for the Arts celebrated its 25th birthday last weekend at its annual "Expressions" gala, this year held at the Hippodrome. To honor the school's silver anniversary, the invitation encouraged the 2,200 guests to "express yourself in silver." Event co-chair Sally Michel glimmered in a silver tunic. Fellow co-chair Molly Shattuck glittered in a silver beaded top, satin skirt and rhinestone sandals. That was just for starters. Halima Aquinot sparkled in a silver beaded corset.

Deirdre M. McElroy, 32, was born with a chronic case of wanderlust that has taken her around the world. As a marketing specialist for Western Union, she often travels to Asia, Australia and the South Pacific, where she's always searching for traditional wearable keepsakes. In the past 10 years, McElroy, a Baltimorean, has accumulated a stunning collection of ethnic fashions, from toe rings and bindis (Indian body art), to saris and djellabas (long, loose outer garments worn in Arabic countries)

They are the hottest thing on the catwalks for spring.The bold and the beautiful are already addicted to them. Now, catsuits are every woman's best bet yet.A catsuit is easily dressed up and down -- with jackets, skirts, sweaters or just accessories -- to create a multitude of looks for a variety of occasions.The economic advantages of basing your wardrobe around one garment are obvious. Finally -- but hardly incidentally -- a catsuit is as comfortable as your favorite sweat suit.Just like three years ago, when women said they could never wear leggings, plenty of women today get the shakes at the thought of slipping into a Lycra-based second skin.

WASHINGTON -- The weirdness begins immediately. Edmund Morris' "Dutch," his "memoir" of Ronald Reagan, bears this dedication: In MemoriamChristine ReaganJune 26, 1947That child died shortly after being born, prematurely, to Mr. Reagan and his first wife, Jane Wyman. Nothing in Mr. Morris' narrative suggests that this event was formative to Mr. Reagan. So the eerily inscrutable dedication foreshadows the perversity of the book. Mr. Morris has enveloped himself in melodrama that seems designed to divert attention from the book's subject to the author -- indeed, to make, in the postmodern manner, the author into the subject.

Just like "comfort food," which conjures up images of home and hearth, "comfort clothes" make us feel warm and safe . . . not too exciting, but definitely inviting.A PASSION FOR PANTSNo. 1 on this holiday season's fashion wish list is pants. After all, when we're sipping hot toddies next to a roaring fire, we are more than likely going to be sitting on the floor.
