V is for versatility ... and for vest.The vest has become the new must-have basic staple in any wardrobe. Forget those stiff three-piece suits that almost made the vest obsolete.Say good-bye to the severely cut, menswear-only vest of yesteryear. Today's vests mix '70s menswear with '60s bohemia, and are popular among both men and women."A vest makes an individual statement," said Kristin Flor, co-manager of The Limited at Westlake. "Each one has different patterns, added-on accessories. It's much more versatile."

Of the 12 Johns Hopkins players who have caught passes thus far, more than half of them are wide receivers. In fact, the top four in receptions and yards are wideouts. But in just four games, sophomores Quinn Donaldson and Bradley Munday have emerged as senior quarterback Braden Anderson's favorite targets. The 6-foot, 190-pound Donaldson leads the No. 10 Blue Jays (4-0 overall and 3-0 in the Centennial Conference) in catches (18), yards (301) and receiving touchdowns (three)

Q: I'm going to our symphony ball this year. It's the social event of the season, and I want to buy a spectacular, colorful outfit. But I also want it to be versatile enough so I can wear it to different functions without looking as if I am always wearing the same thing. Can you recommend an outfit or designer who has really dressy pieces along those lines?A: Italian designer Gianni Versace understands the problem. He tells me "the speed of modern life demands versatile clothes."Mr. Versace says the answer could be a sleeveless dress and jacket.

Pernell McPhee has never operated in the spotlight on the Ravens defense, but the fourth-year outside linebacker has carved out an effective place in the rotation by both feeding on those who hog the attention, and at times, taking it away from them. With the Ravens thin on the defensive line and with stars Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil no longer every-down rushers, McPhee has seen time at both outside linebacker positions, defensive end, and nose tackle. He's not being shoehorned into the defense out of necessity, though.

EVEN THOUGH The BoDeans' latest album is titled "Black And White," don't be misled to believe that race is the only issue being addressed."It's not all about colors and whites and blacks," said singer/songwriter Kurt Neumann, whose band appears at Shriver Hall at Johns Hopkins University tonight at 8 p.m. "It's also about religion, men vs. women, old vs. young. It's actually about people, any people, isolating themselves. I have a feeling that people aren't looking out for each other in general, and that's not a good thing."

An artist must be bold to make art in as many ways as does Robert Wirth. He works in both representational and abstract painting, collage, drawing, photography and printmaking (and is an instructor at the Maryland Institute, College of Art as well).There are no prints on view in his current, huge show of 73 works at the Baltimore Life Gallery. But judging by what's here, he's versatile enough to get away with spreading his talent around.Wirth's love is nature, so naturally he makes the landscape his subject.

Prince George's Little Theatre's celebration of Stephen Sondheim is a show that fans should catch to expand their knowledge of our nation's foremost living composer. In Side by Side by Sondheim at Bowie Playhouse, director Ron Wilder has assembled a talented cast of singers who he acknowledges are inspired by musical director Mac Fancher. Wilder wisely chose to put pianists Fancher and Sue Breon at stage left, making them part of the action and adding a cozy feel to the musical revue of Sondheim's work.

From baseball's days of yore, we now introduce Rick Short."He is a guy cut out of the old mold, a throwback, a down and dirty player," said Bowie Baysox manager Joe Ferguson. "He plays hard all the time."And wherever he goes, Short hits. His name is beside virtually all the major Frederick Keys batting records; he won a Carolina League batting title in 1997, and he has a career .309 average since signing with the Orioles as a 33rd-round draft selection five years ago.The problem: Where do you play him?

Dennis Pitta was in constant motion throughout the Ravens' offseason practices, making it difficult to get an accurate read on where he would line up from play to play. Signed to a five-year, $32 million contract in March, the tight end is expected to have a versatile role in new offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's offensive system. That includes everything from Pitta being split out as an extra wide receiver to working out of the backfield as well as traditional in-line tight end alignments.

When the topic is coffee, a debate always seems a split second away. Obsessives argue over beans, equipment and, of course, where to drink it. We all have favorite spots for different reasons. In Hampden, the picturesque Artifact Coffee plays a whimsical foil to the adventurous, no-frills Spro. The Daily Grind in Fells Point can get you in and out quickly. I have never had a bad cup of anything at the relatively new Tribeca Coffee Roasters in Mount Vernon, either, and that is just to name a percentage of the city's viable options.

Fresh out of Glenelg High, Alex Taylor joined the Salisbury men's lacrosse team for the 2011 season and promptly sought to unseat All-American Johnny Rodriguez for the starting goalie position. The Woodbine native didn't succeed. He got only spot time in eight games, and Rodriguez (Mount St. Joseph) won Goalkeeper of the Year honors. Three years later, Taylor has the job he wanted - as well as perspective. As he prepares to anchor Salisbury's defense for Sunday's NCAA tournament final against Tufts (20-2)

Buck Britton has been in this position before. The 28-year-old utility infielder has shuttled between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk plenty of times. But this time, Britton has a little shine to him. Zack Britton's older brother hit .344/.382/.492 in 28 games for the Baysox before he earned a promotion to Norfolk on Sunday. Britton hasn't had a hit in two games for the Tides, but don't expect that to last long. He's a career .289/.338/.404 hitter in the minors. And while he's never hit for much power, it's Britton's versatility that gets him noticed.

It's tempting to look at the the uncertain status of Orioles slugger Chris Davis and think that the left oblique strain that forced him out of the lineup and onto the disabled list could not have come at a more inopportune time. Of course, there's never a good time to lose a guy who just had one of the greatest offensive seasons in the history of the franchise, especially when no one knows yet how long he will be on the DL. There's nobody who is going to step into the lineup and send a shiver through opposing pitching staff the way Davis has done since he established himself as one of the premier power hitters in the game two years ago. Combine that with the fact that the club already was experiencing an unexpected power shortage during the early weeks of the 2014 season and it might be fair to suspect that the baseball gods are having a cruel laugh at the Orioles' expense.

WASHINGTON - Nene grinned, grabbed the bottom of the net and gleefully swung side to side while waiting for his turn during a post-practice mid-range shooting competition on Thursday with teammate Trevor Booker. Every time Booker made a shot, he moved aside, only to watch in frustration as Nene connected and laughed. Booker held his own but eventually had to concede defeat to the physically imposing Brazilian big man with the stunningly smooth jumper. Nene's defensive aggressiveness, savvy passing and wily gamesmanship vaulted the Washington Wizards to a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven series against the Chicago Bulls, with Game 3 tonight at Verizon Center . But that jump shot - which Nene spent about 30 minutes mastering with Booker after practice - has repeatedly demoralized the Bulls' vaunted defense and flummoxed Defensive Player of the Year Joakim Noah.

INDIANAPOLIS - Another day, another national title for Michael Phelps, but this one was anything but routine. Phelps completed an unprecedented triple last night at the Conoco Phillips Spring Nationals, where he won the 100-meter butterfly in 51.89 seconds. Disappointment at falling short of his fifth world-record swim was tempered by a tidbit from USA Swimming, which reported that the 17-year-old from the North Baltimore Aquatic Club became the first male to win events in three of the four different strokes at the same national meet.

If you were a 19th-century Frenchman, you would likely be served three courses of asparagus during your prenuptial dinner. The vegetable with the suggestive shape, writes Helen Yoest in "Plants with Benefits," was thought to stir amorous feeling. Little did the French know then, confides Yoest, the author of a book on aphrodisiac plants, but asparagus is rich in folic acid, which boosts histamine production — which helps on wedding nights. The benefits of asparagus, she writes, "seem to be in that gray area between actual aphrodisiac effects and the power of suggestion.

INDIANAPOLIS - Standing behind the blocking drills during last month's Senior Bowl, Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith watched Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin closely as he manhandled pass rushers. Whether it was because Martin was the only lineman to consistently handle Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald or because he stonewalled Stanford defensive end Trent Murphy and Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, Martin forged a lasting impression. "I think Zack Martin did an outstanding job," Smith said Thursday at the NFL scouting combine.
