Hot Color Trends for Summer

2 Comments 02 June 2009


If you’re a fan of the gorgeous geometric abstract brights of designer Emilio Pucci, you’ll be thrilled with the summer capsule collection at H&M by British designer Matthew Williamson. Williamson recently had a very successful collaboration with Comme des Garcons, and he is bringing his keen sense of prints and brights that mix to this amazing collection for H&M.

One of the most beautiful examples is this classic “New Look” dress. With a nipped in waist and flowing, but not bulky skirt, this retro look shows exactly why the silhouettes of the 50s and 60s flattered the female figure so successfully. Made of silk, this dress is $129.00 at H&M.

The glam look of movie star sunglasses just got an infusion of color for summer 2009. Get a load of these gorgeous specs, also part of the Matthew Williamson capsule collection at H&M:

A pair of shiny patent finish shoes goes easily from dressing up your skinny jeans to punctuating a cool summer dress. This adorable style comes in four color combos: salmon with a black heart, lemon with a black heart, baby blue with a red heart, or pearl with a red heart. It’s hard to pick a favorite from among these! $185 at


Finally, hats and scarves are fashionable for Summer 2009, and this seashell colored linen cap is an ultra cool way to top off your summer look. The “Valerie” is available in a number of colors and prints from With cafĂ© colored band and buckle detail, $56.00.

    Love the Melissa shoes! But I dont think I would ever pay that much for something I’ll only wear once or twice. But I did just buy these flats from Chinese Laundry, that have this adorable rosette on the top. Super cute, and comfy- good for spring. Only 59 bucks
