SG *FASHION FIX* – Top 10 Trends for Spring: Neon + Social Chic






Last Thursday, there were far more fashionistas in Blue Hand Home than home furnishings.  In celebration of the annual FASHION FIX Spring Fashion Preview presented by Wilmington Dermatology Center, Tracy and Arnie transferred couches, dining tables, textured rugs and a menagerie of interior accents to a home they are staging to make room for a runway and a variety of pop-up shops from Wilmington’s favorite boutiques and designers.


For the next several weeks, I will share with you the Top 10 Trends for Spring we previewed that evening, starting with NEON worn to perfection by model Ozlem Nichols. This ALC “caution orange” dress from Beanie + Cecil encompasses three trends for Spring: bold saturated neon, an envelope skirt silhouette and the high-low effect.
