Spring 2013 Trends | Neon Clothing

Neon is for the bold and the brave—or those who just want to add a little life to their wardrobe. There is no need to worry about looking too flashy: Neon has come a long way since the days of eye-searing paint splatters.

Neon was one of the top trends presented at the London Fashion Week (S/S 2013

Here’s how you can add some glow to your closet.

You wouldn’t think that beige and neon would work, but somehow this light tan tank with its pop of neon yellow embroidery is does. It’s a grownup take on the neon trend.

If you’re still feeling a little shy on the fluorescent, try a neon leather bracelet. The gold plate hardware takes it from trendy to classic, while still adding a bold note to any outfit. Image

Your possessions deserve a little neon love, too. Throw this bright yellow satchel over your shoulder and glow like a beacon.

It takes guts to pull on skinny jeans in neon coral, but we think you’ve got what it takes. Top them with more neon or bring them down a notch with neutral colors

For more inspiration, here are how some of our fave designers did it!

DVF Spills: Top 3 Picks for Spring / Summer 2012

Diane von Furstenberg spring fashion picksDiane von Furstenberg, in an interview with ABC News, discussed her essentials this spring season listing her top three picks for spring. A fan of this big name in the fashion industry. Because business remains business, I´m not surprised to see that the list  shadows the essential features of her DVF Spring 2012 RTW.

So what does DVF wants us all to have in our closets this spring?

1. A white Dress

Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2012 catwalk opened with a gorgeous white wrap dress, and logically we would understand that now. A white dress is the number one on the list, and we couldn’t agree more! It´s dainty and clean, soft under the sun, and quite easy to dress up and down. It´s like styling a clean sheet, you start from scratch and can have fun with the colors and accessories.

2. Utilitarian Florals

I think we all know by now that  bold floral prints are a primary trend for spring and summer 2012. But according to Diane, its not just any floral dress that does the trick. DVF describes the right florals to be blooming with an overall utilitarian shape. In simpler terms, go for floral prints that are trendy and creatively designed, but remain functional rather than exaggerated.

So there you have it ladies, when shopping for that floral summer dresses , remember what DVF said to look for in a printed dress.

3. Unusual Pastels

Power pastel trend is a must for just about all the designers this seasons, and DVF is not an exception. Rest assured, you can most definitely go out in your statement pastel combo!

Diane von Furstenberg, however,  doesn´t go for a typical pastel matching and colorblocking, she aims at unusual pastel combinations. For example, go for pastel orange trousers, a neon green shirt, pulled together with a pastel gray jacket and, well, a slim contrast belt. Or opt for a layered dress with surprising pastel design. Now this woman knows what she is talking about!

Designer Ads That Give you Butterflies!

In The Navy…

Although not a likely trend for summer, navy cropped up on several catwalks and many celebrities have been sporting the colour for both day and night. I’ve got kind of a “thing” for the color navy blue. Like the classic song by Diane Renay, I’ve been thinking a lot about the color, sailors, and even marine. This collection however, shows navy in a classic, chic, and ROYAL way.
