Now Trending: Bright, Brilliant Neon

Collections made in bright, bold neon fabrics were a constant in the SS 12 fashion presentations. Designers such as Nanette Lepore, Prabal Gurung and Peter Som sent their models marching down runways in sensational, fluorescent hues that complimented their colorful collections.

Off of the runways and on the sidewalks (and red carpets), celebrities have been embracing the neon trend.

Jessica Alba was seen wearing a leather vest with neon skinny jeans, which added a bold pop to her look.  Zoe Saldana was spotted wearing a colorblocked Prabal Gurung dress, while Jessica Chastain was seen wearing glowing green Barbara Bui.

So this spring, come to the bright side, and embrace all the fun, colorful options that are now available on the racks of your favorite shopping haunts.

Now Trending: Pretty, Ladylike Peplums

Spring 2012 is all about a shapelier silhouette, with a nod toward styles popular in the 50s and 60s.

The peplum is back in a big way, and we’re not the only ones taking notice.

We spotted actress Ginnifer Goodwin in an edgy, cut-out and sheer Peter Som dress, and we also took notice to this lovely Alice + Olivia number worn by Allie Gonino.

Style maven Olivia Palermo, a constant on our "best dressed" list, was seen in a sweet, pink Mulberry metallic peplum top.

So ladies, now is the time to start storing your bulky winter wear and step into more dainty, ladylike shapes that are flattering to almost any figure.
