I hope it doesn't have anything to do with our collective mood, but the color of the coming spring season, according to Neiman Marcus, is blue.

"It is all shades of blue, all hues of blue, all depths of blue, and you can mix your blues," said Michael Hall, public relations director.

The other major trend of the season, Hall said, is "tribal," or multicultural patterns and embellishments.

Major fall trends, such as leopard print and metallics, are staying put, too.

Here are other top spring trends, which can be mixed and matched:

Feminine draping: Dresses, tops and even foldover pants feature this soft detail.

Arm candy: Feel free to load up bracelets from your wrist to your elbow.

Relaxed pants: Harem or cargo pants fit this category.

Nude shoes: Try a light beige or neutral snakeskin pattern.

Shorts: Go super short or try a longer city style. Variations include leather shorts or a pair with a cummerbund waist.

Wedge shoes: Find a nude pair and you've got two trends on your feet.

White shirts: Look for great cuts, pleats and embellishments.

Denim dressing: The hardy cotton twill shows up in dresses and jackets, not just jeans, this season.

Novel T-shirts: Some of these decorated T-shirts have necklaces built in, too.
