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!

DROOL OVER DRESSES!

“If you are to buy a piece, buy a dress, at least you’re dressed” – Marc Jacobs

On that note, given to us by one of my favorite designers, I decided to dig into the internet looking for those dresses that can make your mouth feel all watery, and make your heart eat itself out! No matter what we buy every season and how funky we try to be with the panks, skirts, overalls etc… The truth remains that nothing can make us feel and look as feminine and beautiful as a dress can.
Its true, there are numerous styles and shapes for dresses, some of us like the long maxi dresses and others will not wear one unless forced to by a wedding card that says “Dress code: MAXI”. Regardless, a dress is all woman, and boy don’t we all love feel all woman. So heres a tribute to the one piece that will always remain in our closet, the one piece that will always have our backs, and the one piece we will always run to when we have some serious impressing to do. As a matter of fact, forget impressing anyone, a dress can make you feel good for you, and thats what this blog is all about anyways!
Enjoy the pics, and for some of you , HAPPY SHOPPING!
