Boisterous plant prints debuted decades ago, but these lively leaves have endured. They've become a classic way to add eye-catching glamour.

My closet is a mess. I've gone on ignoring it long enough, but now my clothes problem is seeping into the bedroom pile by pile. It's time for an autointervention.
