Trend alert for Spring - Retro colored rainbow

 One of my favorite seasons is coming up- check out the below whats Hotness and still on the rise..

I have been in love with the yellow Giuseppe Angela is sporting. try doing a pop of color like she has. NOTE: one should never go over board in the colors of the neon family. Stick to a basic outfit and compliment the outfit with something bright to stand out. Because neon has really never went out of style, don't be scared to buy the neon in shoes or purses. I guarantee you will be wearing them for seasons to come. Both shoes Angela is wearing in the pictures above is from Giuseppe Zanotti. This designer is good for making very color shoes..

To the leopard bag, you fear to wear something like denim in leopard, try wearing it in a purse/clutch/ or backpack. YSL has amazing leopard clutches, has always done leopard right. but if you can not buy such  a pricey item RIGHT NOW, go for a smaller brand who leopard does not look cheap. SM- Steve Madden is good with leopard. This is probably the number one knock off company to bigger brands and Bebe as well, that I have seen.. You'll get good quality for a smaller price...

 Courtesy of Rachel Zoe- The Zoe these two items are my favorite for the spring - The Tom Binns Massai necklace below- retailing @ 1650.00, and the Pierre Hardy Leopard print Backpack- retailing @ 2175.00

 The neon colors are really going to be a hit this spring- So try buying the unique color schemes that some of these designers are using for bib necklaces and other jewelry pieces. These piece make a huge statement and adding it to a casual outfit is your best go to. You can for sure get away with wearing a necklace like this in the day time. It is all about adding a touch of color to your wardrobe and outfit this season.

Spring loves you must have this season:

Leopard prints: whether is it pants, blouses, tshirt, shorts, skirts, scarves, hats, backpacks, purses- clutches, heels, sandals, head wraps, the list can go on- you get my point- all things leopard is a go
The DVF takeover- her Resort collection is a wonderful one and the most represented brand of neon and bright colors galore, when you are at nordstrom- savvy, Saks fifth- check out her collection or go to her website and you will see what I'm talking about. I wanted to purchase a couple of neon items from her.
Neon nail polish
bright colored/neon sweaters and cardigans- Jcrew has a great collection out right now on thin material sweaters- $79 a pop..
Colored denim- still in of course, so buy up.. Jcrew again has a lot of pastel denim.. and this season a lot more denim designers are jumping on the Jbrand band wagon and making more colors for the consumers.     NOTE: Jbrands are the best fit and best material I feel.. Also Joe’s jean are great too, but make sure to by a size smaller as their fabric on the patterns or colored denim tends to stretch out in the bum area. But Joe’s Jeans has their five color denim out now, so they have fun filled colors to choose from.
Neon jewelry - Try DYI- if it is hard to find a lot of Neon Jewerly- the garment district should be your best friend- this way you necklaces, braclets, and earrings will be one of a kind..
Foil textured denim/jeggings - Newest hit trend- Current and Elliot have done a good job with this trend
Thick heeled pumps- they have so many colors to choose from, you can find at Steve madden
Neon threads
Knee lenght button down dresses
Tribal bright necklaces
Denim button down shirts
Colored/Neon shorts and /or skirts
Wide leg slacks/ denim are still in
Printed denim
Sky High Wedges - My fav...
Dior- neon pumps

 Here is a pair of leopard pants done right. This is a pic of me the other day spending time in LA.. They are the most comfortable denim leopard pants I have bought or found. I went back in fourth on the Current and Elliott soft leopard pants and the Joe jeans leopard pants. But I settle on the Joe's, but thinking about going back and purchasing the Current's again. I am that type of girl that if I'm going to go leopard its going to be rich in you can see me walking down the street.. LOL, BUT the Current's bring that soft touch to an outfit, good for the daytime..

When traveling and going out with friends, try to wear things that pop.. Neon dress that Evelyn is wearing is an amazing color on her and an amazing color in general. Like Ive said this is my favorite color in neon. I made it my point to bring alot of neon's ( since Im a bright color wearing girl) into my closet these past years.

 Color blocking has not died down this upcoming spring, so please still go for it. Do as Kelly Rowland did and put colors together that most people don't do- usually most people do the obvious color blocking colors. So don't worry if your closet is looking like rainbow you cant escape, use your imagination and start blocking.. you can never go wrong with color blocking- because its your own personal color scheme..

You can always add a pop of bright color purse as Kourtney did with her Birkin. She kept the outfit very girly and neutralized and made the big statement with the orange bag.. There are many colored purses out there this upcoming season.
