What’s Trending? Glow On & On and On

j crew collection spring 2012

Neon accents and accessories line the shelves of NYC’s hippest and hautest retailers. From Bloomingdales to TopShop, blinding florescent trinkets and tops say fresh fashion for Spring 2012. First accompanied by spandex biker shorts and Reebok high top sneakers at step-aerobic classes across America, neon is yet another 1980’s fashion statement revisited.

From the runway to the real way, neon statement pieces add personality to any look. A multi-striped sweater, collared shirt, tote bag, or nail color are just a few ways to take part in the trend without really trying. Lovers of clean lines are encouraged to live in shrunken cashmere cardigans in tangerine and mint green. Risk takers, get with mini cross-body bags in lime or hot pink.

Buy, bye grey days. Spring 2012 dubs neon the new black.

Yours,

Summer This

Summer Essentials

 

Summer is so here. And its time to give our warm weather wardrobe a tune up with a few new bits. While the straw fedora, the white bottom and the bright bikini are go-to pieces from summer to summer, the eye-catching handbag, the rock star tank and the colored thong sandal keep us up to date. Last but not least, those sexy, wink through the lens sunglasses and chic gold cuff add a little Kim K glamour that screams summer 2011. We’ve given you ours…what are your summer essentials?

Yours,

Be Trendy: The Little White Dress

LWD

Whether it is sleek, sexy, or bohemian, the little white dress is one of this summer’s most adaptable trends. No longer reserved for a tropical getaway, the LWD is crisp and clean for a day at the office, a day date or even running errands. Pair your LWD with a nude pump, a cute sandal or with another summer favorite; a pair of raffia heels for a pulled together look.
