Runway Translation: Fluorescent Frocks

Spring 2013 Runway Trend- Bright Yellow Dress

Simone Rocha, Nanette Lepore & Versace were just a few of the designers who showed bold pops of neon and fluorescent hues on the runways this spring.  This trend is a bit tricky because it’s easy to go overboard and find yourself looking like a fashion victim of the 1980’s.  If you’re brave enough to go for a bright yellow dress like the looks above be sure to soften the glow with a complimentary shade of turquoise or pink… even black tends to dial down the bright factor a bit.

Black & White Beach Style

To me, there’s nothing more relaxing than sitting on the beach, under a huge umbrella, reading the latest fashion magazines while sipping on a frosty beverage.  Keep your look simple this swim suit season and rock a classic black and white combination…
