More Neon

Most Wanted Neon

With this cold weather outside, I just can’t get enough of spring’s vibrant bold colours. I am absolutely crazy for this neon lace-sleeve wool-blend crepe dress iconby Christopher Kane. It is such a great investment piece that you could wear for many different occasions.

Work the neon trend by adding the studded neon pink leather pumps iconby McQ Alexander McQueen and the contrast leather-trimmed neoprene clutch iconby Pierre Hardy. This is colour blocking par excellence.

Most Wanted

You can achieve a completely new look just by changing the accessories. Here are some ideas how to combine the gorgeous dress:

Frayed tweed shoulder bag iconby Miu Miu and leather and crochet-knit platform sandals iconby Missoni.

Leather and woven straw charm bag iconby Lanvin and python pumps by Alexandre Birman.

Happicolo leather shoulder bag iconby Lanvin and colour-block patent-leather sandals iconby Giuseppe Zanotti.

Sweet Charity python and leather shoulder bag iconby Christian Louboutin and Claudia embroidered suede pumps iconby Brian Atwood.

Madeleine patent-leather duffle bag iconby Chloé and Yolanda 100 patent-leather pumps by Christian Louboutin.

Happy Shopping!

Trend Alert Resort 2012: Neon

Cover Neon

OMG… it feels like in the 80’s! The crazy colours are back. Resort 2012 is full of neon brights with acid rainbow prints at Christopher Kane to elegant shift dresses at Michael Kors.

From fluorescent pinks to electrifying neon-greens here are the hottest pieces to wear this season. My suggestion: Team neon pieces with neutral hues or classic shades such as camel. Another way to work the trend is to add a bold accessory or some statement neon heels.

LoL, Sandra
