In The Nude...


Spring is officially in the air, and with Summer approaching...and clothes coming seems only fitting that Nude would be the hottest color trend this season.

What begins with fashion models on the cat walk has an end resulting in everyday lifestyle trends that also trickle over into your home life. Nothing is better than crawling into bed after a long day at work.... the Rio, Soprano and La Femme product collections, recently introduced in nude, will make that experience even more pleasurable...maybe even try them in the nude?

The nude hue is one of the most appealing this season because of its can wear it separately or together...and in combination with brighter tones or pastels. Soft colors this season such as light pink, mint, peach and pale yellow are very popular. On the brighter side of things, hot pinks, neon yellow/orange and electric blue are making their mark. The beauty of this entire color palette is the way they can be tied together in matching form, or, completely mixed up. Whichever direction you choose, you're sure to make an on-trend statement for Spring/Summer 2012!

Back to where it all begins on the runway...Calvin Klein, Herve Leger by Max Azria and Lanvin (above) make trend setting statements that carry over into editorial, make up, home interior, ready to wear as well as street style...

Head to toe pastels blended with neutral tones create a natural, feminine and sexy feel...

Head to toe pastels are one of the latest fashion trends

Pastels combined with a splash of bright color remind me of Easter (candies and egg decorating in particular)...just right around the corner!

Keep it hot like the sunshine with bold bright on bright color combinations and pops of neon....the peacock feathers are inspiring me the most!
