Color Play

October 26, 2012

Color is taking over the gym floor, with bright sneakers replacing the classic white, black or grey models.

Trainers waiting for their clients yesterday morning at Equinox, in New York City.

Real men wear raspberry… a trainer and his client both rocking raspberry sneakers: 2 of the 6 men I noticed wearing raspberry while working out in close proximity this morning.

Bright blues and turquoise were also prominent.

A couple on Fifth Avenue were color coordinated. LOVE the orange laces and neon green socks!

 

 

 

Overall Approach

September 25, 2012

Overalls are making a comeback next spring,with feminine iterations seen all over the catwalks.

Soft, feminine versions take the work wear staple to another level.

Kinder Aggugini showed silk floral printed overalls with a charming gingham blouse.

Henry Holland showed a lace trimmed floral version for his House of Holland collection.

Phillip Lim took an edgier approach in bold colors worn bare, with a striped cover-up and ankle boots.

Color me Swedish

June 12, 2012

The bold color statement seen here extends well beyond clothing. These happy hues serve to brighten up another chilly, wet day!

Here a few of the snapshots taken on a stroll through dreary Gothenburg:

I love this display of bowties!

Dishes take on the color and floral trends seen in all the fashion shops:

Clean and minimal Swedish design is brightened up by a shot of color in these richly hued bath towels:

Neon and On and On

May 17, 2012

Neon is a big trend for spring/summer, but wearing it can pose a challenge. Here are a few tips to help you navigate through the bright colors of the season:

A little goes a long way:

Neon worn with neon is a bit much. Mix one great intensely colored piece with something more subtle.

The 80’s are over:

Black can be harsh with strong neon colors and takes us back to the 80’s. To look completely modern, mix neon with white, grey, beige or denim, for a less jarring effect. Stripes can also be a great foil for all the strong color.

Softer is easier:

Head to toe neon can be overwhelming, but soft whitened versions of the same color family can work really well together. Try a soft pink with a neon pink, or a pale green with an acid green.

A little dab will do you:

Just a touch of neon in an accessory can be an instant update without making the whole outfit loud. Look for neon shoes, belts or bags as a great way to lift any outfit.

Neon nail polish is a short term commitment. Try a little on your fingers or toes for a fun, temporary trial on the trend.
