The "It" Factor for Denver: Women love Tory Burch for her laid-back style, which effortlessly combines timeless silhouettes with just enough on-trend punch for an instant wardrobe update. From a casual, black blazer, T-shirt, and tie-dye shorts to a snakeskin-print dress, Burch's line offers a bounty of real-life clothing options for spring. The Gist of the Show: Mixing clean lines and easy separates, Burch turns out another collection of uncomplicated American sportswear just slightly glammed up: classic blouses in bright coral or a busy, floral print; tie-dyed drop-waisted shorts, tanks, and skirts; a gingham suit of cropped trousers paired with a fitted jacket; metallic skirts; and a sequined T-shirt and relaxed minidress. The combinations work in an easy manner that also manages to look pulled together. Look for It Locally: ALine, 5375 Landmark Place, 303-773-8200; Neiman Marcus, 3030 E.
