If you haven’t noticed, summer 2011 is on the brighter side. With
flashy, ostentatious, flamboyant colors being taken off the runways and placed on the city streets of everywhere, USA, I think we could all agree that its one of the trends to watch for the next two months.
Widely worn when colorblocking, neon’s are the new game changer. Limes, vivacious oranges, fuchsia? Neon colors are making their way on to the everyday woman with eye-catching combos. But this trend can also be done in monochromatic ensembles. Not limited to the thrill seeker, these colors are fabulous when worn as ladylike blouses and skirts. Example? Well, Jessica Quirk from What I Wore pulled it off pretty flawlessly.
Taking dresses, watches and belts from mild to mouthwatering is the goal of this awesome trend. But if you’re on the shyer side or want to experiment try snazzing up your polish for a more subtle look the next time you hit a manicure station. For a little more pizzazz try a bold lip or statement lids! Can you imagine what the red carpet will look like now that neon color showstoppers are prevalent in the collections of Miu Miu, Versace and Nina Ricci? Oh man, I can’t wait!!
So, prepare yourselves ladies for a vibrantly colored 2011 summer!
