Lela Rose Spring/Summer 2016 Ready-to-Wear
Los colores de mis amores! I couldn’t stop myself from drooling over the neon color spectrum in Lela Rose’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection. An assortment of hand cut florals, neon jacquard fabric, and suspended florals flourished the runway as each model showcased living color at its best. The inspiration behind the collection came from the muted prints from artist Sam Falls. The color palette of his work is replicated throughout the tonal variations in each piece and vividly highlights natural beauty that we city dwellers may not observe.
All though I may not see myself wearing neon yellow, this color is beautiful, enticing, and radiates joy! Lela’s yellow-on-yellow take is fantastic as she pairs a monochromatic crop top with a yellow organza pleated skirt. If that doesn’t inspire you to take on the color challenge, then observe the artwork from Sam Falls and digest the color, texture, and pattern played throughout his mediums.
I curated this Neon Fall’s look with a subtle color scheme that can easily be manipulated. I used the crop top and organza pleated look from Rose’s collection as my inspiration and created a monochromatic look with a floral embroidery crop top and cascading textured skirt. By adding a bright bag or bold lip, this look can easily be obtainable. Crop tops are perfect for spring as they can be worn with high waisted skirts, shorts, or pants. Play around with color and try something new by wearing a color you never thought you could wear.
Use this easy formula below to create a bold, neon look without looking like a glow stick:
bold solid color top (with print if preferred)
same color bottom
(I recommend wearing the opposite tone of the top i.e. darker, lighter or the same)
(black and gold accessories will add that pop if you’re looking for something simple) =
the neon you!
