The bold colors have it next summer. Hot tones in shades from red to pink were seen throughout designers’ Spring 2009 collections. Neon tones in feminine finishes and sleek silhouettes sashayed down the runways in pantsuits, short mini dresses and gowns. The happy and vibrant colors were shown as monochromatic looks or paired with unexpected colors like powder blue for a modern twist.
Lanvin creates a short mini cocktail design with an asymmetrical shoulder and blousy fit in a vibrant tangerine.
Gucci goes to Africa in an orange-cherry pantsuit, soft blue, button-up top and neon trimmed, safari hat.

The best news about the trend, whether you’re a pale blonde or tan skinned brunette, is the hot summer shades will look amazing on almost anyone.
