With the arrival of the first day of spring, our closets are in need of a major refresh. While a full on overhaul would be nice, integrating a few key pieces into your closet is enough to breathe new life into your old basics.

When I first walked into Palm Court’s newest restaurant (or dare I say music lounge?), Estefan Kitchen, the first thought that came to mind was that it was every bit “Miami.” Strewn throughout its interior, there were sparkling white pillars, deep blue and purple mood lighting, a live pianist, waiters buzzing by in head-to-toe white, a singer performing the classics from inside the indoor-outdoor bar, and of course, Miami’s finest foodies wining and dining. It may have been lunchtime on a weekday, but from inside Estefan Kitchen, you would have thought it was a Saturday night. And to match these see-and-be-seen vibes, the food, a menu of fine Cuban cuisine, was as tasty as it was beautifully presented. After the first few bites, it became wildly apparent that this “very Miami” spot was a very nice, lasting addition to the Design District, and it was one created by none other than superstar duo-turned-hospitality vets, Gloria and Emilio Estefan.

A leopard may not be able to change its spots, but some zebras can in fact change their stripes. Get ready to channel your inner zebra because this spring vertical, horizontal and every-which-way stripes are in for the season and there’s no reason to limit the direction you wear them.
