Nicole Miller Spring 2012 RTW

Calling Nicole Miller's Spring 2012 collection "bright" would be an understatement. Citing inspiration from skateboarding and the energy from the X-games, Miller's bold prints and wearable separates were a breath of fresh air in an often dress heavy selection. The runway show's program read "The speed of wheels in motion. The momentum of a skateboard shredding through the air." And to be honest this collection definitely had an aire about it. Vivid neon mixed with silky solid colors so as not to overwhelm the total look. And while taking note from something so masculine as Extreme Sports she pulled off most of the collection with a surprising amount of femininity. Although not every piece was lovable there were a few here and there that I couldn't resist sharing. Plus I'm on such a neon kick right now it's ridiculous. Here we go...

Love these bold tops and neutral shorts. They're very tomboyish - in a sleek and sophisticated kind of way. Definitely seeing the skateboarding reference come through. I kind of also need that cobalt trimmed sweater. P.S. Swooning over the shoes. Especially the colored ones on the left.


I'm super obsessed with this particular splashy fabric. I swear it's calling out my name. The cut out mesh tank and bandage skirt - beyond. It's a fabulous way to show you how you can wear brights like this everyday. Just make sure your other piece (jacket, bottoms, top) are a solid color so that things stay fashionable instead of faux pas. Plus check out the shoes on the right. Even more fabulous than the ones above? It's possible...


Cute and colorful dresses. I could probably do without the checkerboard print on the right but it still adds a fun and sporty edge to it.

What do you think? Are you still into the bright colors? I think I'll be extending my neon love a little bit more next season....
