Streetstyle Trend: A Touch of Neon

It was one of the biggest streetstyle trends of this season: neoncolored fashion items. The bright and funky colors popped up at every fashion week. We saw fluorescent lime, eclectic green, bright orange and neon pink everywhere.

The daredevils wore neon in their actual clothing, others opted for bright accessories like bags (satchel bags,  clutches) and shoes.

A smart choice, since a touch of neon is the easiest way to pimp your whole look and go from dull to daring.

Especially on a sunny day those neon shades make a great fashion statement.

Menswear Trend Report SS2011: Bright & Shiny

The biggest summer trend in womenswear without a doubt was the colorblocking trend. Gucci, Jil Sander and Prada set the tone with their collections and the trend immediately was picked up. In menswear the same thing happened, though a bit more subtle. Here Kenzo, Calvin Klein and Louis Vuitton showed some bright hues too. Yet it was Jil Sander that went for colorblocking all the way.

Though the trend wasn’t as big in menswear as it was in womenswear; men certainly are wearing more brights this season. Mixing several bright colors together in one look might be a little too much for some men, but at least the designers above brought some of the fun back in fashion.
