Neon Lights ….

Neon is the buzz word for Spring/Summer 2012. If you don’t want to look like a traffic cone, neon can be introduced into your wardrobe in very subtle ways.

Gee up a simple, black dress or plain outfit with neon yellow or pink shoes. Remember you can introduce bright colour through your accessories, so think bangles, necklaces, hairbands/clips or what about a neon handbag?

You can follow this fashion trend very easily and cheaply so be clever with your choices and shine brightly this season.

Who said you can’t wear white?

There has been an abundance of all-white looks on the spring/summer 2012 catwalks by designers: Celine, Diane Von Furstenberg, Chloe, Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney. White can be worn in flowing fabrics or in crisp cotton. By wearing white, you can exude a cool, minimal but eye catching look.

A simple white Tee or vest top over jeans with lots of accessories makes a subtle yet memorable impression – think Jennifer Anniston! Or why not try a simple white shirt dress with a tan belt for an effortless yet chic effect.
If you are not adverse to white jeans they can look gorgeous with a faded denim shirt, tyed in a knot at the waist.
There are lots of options so the message is loud and clear ….. Don’t be afraid to wear white!
