Trend: FlameOn

Maybe I’ve been reading too many 90’s grunge blogs or listening to too much Die Antwoord, but I think it’s safe to assume that there will be a revival of tacky, Harley Davidson-esque flame print in the immediate future.

Just take the brand spankin’ new Nasty Gal vintage lookbook, featuring the queen of 90’s grunge herself, Niki Takesh. Those nails? Killer!

Of course this trend has been popping up on the S/S runways of Jeremy Scott, PradaAlexander McQueen and I’m sure more. My most favorite is a bit of a flashback; from Daniel Palillo F/W 2010. I love the elegant structure combined with a usually tacky print.

However, as Jeffrey Campell‘s latest bomb, the Flame Litas prove, not all flame print works. My suggestion: moderation if you’re thinking about taking this print for a spin.

Until then… I had to.

It’s time once again for an embarassing confession on my part. I may or may not call Big Rich Texas one of my guilty pleasures. But with this post, I can claim that it’s purely for research. Anyway… While watching the show that shall not be named, I found myself lovestruck with the neon green bag that Hannah totes around (if you can find me a photo I will love you forever). Hannah dresses in dark and edgy colors and the extra pop of florescence makes her look into a complete package.

Adding a pop of neon is shocking, yet fitting, for the upcoming season; when fashionistas shed their dark winter garb for a more colorful spring style. I’m definitely going to try it out. I think I’ll start with a pop of fluorescent nail polish like in the above photo, but I would love to find a neon green bag like Hannah’s and the one below.
