We talked a few weeks ago about how tie dye was one of this summer’s hottest trends, but there’s another trend that we also need to discuss – bright colors! Now, I know that it isn’t a surprise to most of you that the bolds come out as the weather warms up, but I wanted to show you which colors seem to be the most popular for 2010!
Moving away from the greens and blue, the hit colors for this season seem to fall more into the citrusy spectrum. Pinks, oranges, yellows, that’s the colors that people seem to be clamoring for. Like the orange tank below from Green Dragon, $83, or the Green Dragon Tang Wap, $87, under that, when you go with these colors, you’ll be able to taste the juicy oranges and grapefruits they’re inspired by.
Pulling off this look is simple. You can pair bright color with simply jeans or with crisp white pants for a refreshing put-together look. For accessories, I would go with black, the contrast will really make the colors pop. Maybe a simple black beaded necklace, black drop earrings – they will really accent the rest of your outfit.
Don’t be afraid of color – everyone can pull it off, even if it’s just adding orange pumps to your feet. If you’re unsure, just start small, a touch here, a touch there.
Now that it’s officially June, we are allowed to spend our days lying next to the pool (well, we can day dream about it from our desks). But just because the weather is sweltering doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t, at the very least, look decent. There will be plenty of camping trips in the future when you can pull off the sweaty unclean look, don’t save it for the supermarket.
So we’re going to run through a few basic necessities for summer that will insure you look fabulous!
1. A great basic tee. This white burnout top from Alternative Apparel is the ideal piece for any wardrobe and this worn/vintagey feel of the shirt will sooth even the roughest of summer sunburns.
2. Stylish sandals. These UGG Cypris Pale Gold Sandals ($130) are great for a night out on the town, running errands, walking along the beach (hand in hand with your honey), whatever the summer brings. Comfortable and stylish, you really can’t go wrong with these.
3. Great maxi dress. Maxi dresses, like this one from Green Dragon (Purple Maxi Dress, $175), are ideal for summer. They are easy to just throw on and in 5 minutes, you’re out the door! With a lightweight material, maxi dresses will help to keep you cool during the humid summer months.
4. Tote bag. Tote bags are definitely a summer essential. You can pack so much stuff into these Scout bags and the fact that they wiped clean will keep them looking fresh, even after being buried in the sand. We carry a whole range of these stylish bags, from cosmetic cases to storage bins. Everyone who has tried them say that these are a definite buy!

Green Dragon Black One-Shoulder Dress ($98)
Don’t go overboard with your LBD. A few simple accents like the two dresses pictures are good – they won’t attract any attention from your beautiful accessories and figure. It is a movie, so you don’t want to have to be uncomfortable in your seat with tons of tulle or heavy accents. These two dresses in particular are made with a light, breathable fabric (perfect for the humidity), that won’t stick to your skin as you’re dancing the night away after the show.
