A hot trend for SS12, neon is the perfect way to brighten up your summer wardrobe. Olivia Munn's fluoro yellow skater skirt and Irina Shayk's hot orange skinny jeans look fab paired with simple grey marl, but extra points go to Katie Holmes for colour-blocking her neon pink maxi skirt with a printed green vest. Follow their lead and keep accessories simple; let the colour do the talking!
Blue denim is a staple for timeless summer style, and looks its best paired with crisp white cotton. Kirsten Dunst wears her button-front skirt with a simple blouse, knotted at the waist, and retro sunnies for easy vintage style, and the pop of colour from her red bag really sets the whole outfit off. Rachel Bilson opts for super-feminine broderie anglaise with her denim jacket, while Cameron Diaz wears her classic blue jeans with a slouchy tee for a crisp, casual look. When the sun is shining, strappy sandals (like Kirsten and Rachel's) are perfect with this laid back look, but neutral ankle boots like Cameron's look fab too, and will keep your feet dry when the British weather lets us down!
Nothing says garden-party gorgeous like a floral dress, and these bright blooms are some of the best we've seen. Michelle Williams' pale green and yellow print Jason Wu shift really flatters her porcelain skintone, and Dianna Agron's turquoise sunnies really zing with her Tracy Reese for Anthropologie dress. Katie Holmes printed blue number is a more casual take on the trend, but all of our ladies have one thing in common, choosing sleek black accessories and statement sunnies to offset their girly frocks.
Prints are everywhere this season, and they're an easy way to add interest to an outfit. Dianna Agron's blue and white zigzag a-line shirt looks super cute with matching blue ballet flats, and her luxe caramel biker provides the perfect colour contrast. Olivia Palermo's watercolour print dress is perfectly balanced by her sherbet yellow knit, and accessorised with her teal blue cross-body bag and adorable fluffy white dog. Finally, Miranda Kerr pulls off the ultimate in airport-chic with her slouchy blue and white printed trousers, a simple white vest, and smart black blazer, with her Yves Saint Laurent Cabas Chyc bag making the perfect carry-on!
That's our summer style sorted then; now all we have to do is wait for the rainclouds to disperse! Sunglasses at the ready...
