SUMMER BRIGHTS... from runways to Sophie’s Closet

There is no better time to add bright colours to one's wardrobe than in heat of summer. While colour, is, of course, always 'in', it should be taken to the next level during the summer months: the brighter, the better! The hottest colours for spring and summer 2010 are greens, hot pink, and the quintessential summer must-have, turquoise.


On the runway...

Nicole Farhi, Zac Posen, Louis Vuitton

This season many designers embraced green in many shades, from deep green to bright lime green, like the accessories from Louis Vuitton. Green is making a big statement this summer.

In Sophie's Closet...

Rachel Leigh 'Audrey' Enamel Bracelets in Citron, Kelly, and Cabana (AED 320 each)

Rachel Leigh's 'Audrey' bracelets are a perfect way to add a little pop of colour to one's wardrobe. This cheerful little bow bracelet is just the perfect companion to a breezy summer dress.

Bounkit Huge Opulent Green Agate Earrings (AED 1670)

Bounkit's green drop earrings are a perfect way to add a bit of old Hollywood glamour. They would compliment a gorgeous cocktail dress or an evening gown flawlessly.

Bounkit Necklace with a Four Petal Green Aventurine Flower (AED 5900)

Also from Bounkit is this stunning emerald green statement necklace. Statement necklaces can add that special something to any ensemble, whether it's a simple v-neck sweater, a blouse or a gorgeous dress. This one is a sure show-stopper. It comes with another great perk: the flower is a removable brooch.


On the runway...

DKNY, Christian Dior, Nicholas Kirkwood

Both Donna Karan and John Galliano embraced head-to-toe hot pink looks for their spring collections. This colour is popping up everywhere from make-up, accessories, bags, and shoes.

In Sophie's Closet...

CC Skye Neon Pink Cuff (AED 290)

Head-to-toe hot pink can be a little daunting, so accessorizing in this bright shade is a safer alternative to embrace this look. CC Skye's cuff is an elegant but punchy hot pink option.

Jacques Fath 'Ches MAXIM Rose' Long Earrings (AED 1500)

Jacques Fath 'Chez MAXIM Rose' Necklace (AED 2500)

Jacques Fath's 'Chez MAXIM' earrings and necklace are a sure way to be noticed. Made in Paris, it is unmistakably Parisian chic. A lot of drama and a little bit of boudoir, these pieces are sophisticated but with a flirty and a sexy edge. Très chic.


On the runway:

Versace, Derek Lam, Burberry

The truth is: turquoise is the quintessential summer colour. No summer season goes without it and 2010 is bursting with it. From summer dresses to glamorously amazonian Versace gowns - it's the colour to be seen in. Designers like Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, and Burberry all focused on bright turquoise handbags for their spring collections.

In Sophie's Closet...

Jacques Fath "Croisette" Earring (AED 760)

Bounkit Turquoise 24K Gold Plated Earrings (AED 1490)

Often only a little hint of turquoise is all that is needed to radiate summer glamour. Both Jacques Fath and Bounkit's earrings are just sheer turquoise perfection.

Siman Tu Aqua Glass Necklace (AED 2995)

Another statement necklace is Simon Tu's aqua glass necklace in a turquoise-like shade. It would look absolutely exquisite with an amazing maxi-dress for that highly coveted boho chic, or with a little black dress for a polished evening look.
