I admit I never thought I'd see neon make a comeback, but not only did it find its way back onto the racks, neon orange seems to be THE color of choice- I guess if we're going to make a statement, let's be loud and, well really loud! Setting aside the neon's, which hasn't made its way to handbags (yet?) the other really popular colors this summer are pastels- especially tangerine and mint green. What makes pastels so great is their soft, natural tones mix and match really well, so if you are on a budget this can really be helpful.
Okay, I get sidetracked really easily, so let me get back on topic and keep in mind that colors are important to this year's trends (but aren't they always?!). So, accessories-
In addition to your accessorizing, be bold. If you are wearing beads, whether it's a necklace, bangle or cocktail ring it needs to be big, bold and shapely. Moving on to handbags, bright and colorful is trendy this summer. Whether it is a bold red or orange, exotic skins and floral designs are what seem to be on the catwalk (while I do admit I am not crazy about the floral designs!). I think the key to floral patterns are in wearing them as scarves and headbands to accessorize and accentuate the rest of your outfit. A final note on handbags; there are a few out there that are suggesting lace is in, but I haven't seen it a whole lot of lace.
And a final note, shoes! Slip-on flats are in and there is an eclectic variety to suite just about every personality (and if you have multiple personalities, you can have a pair for each!). Paisley, pastels, bright, and bold shapes are a few fashionable flats that are in and can be purchased. Del Toro shoes has a wide variety of flats to choose.
