CIZ-LifestyleFashionNeonIf you’re curious about the spring and summer trends for 2013, there are plenty to choose from. But, a personal favorite which will only leave you feeling like Coco Chanel off the Rivera chic is embracing the black and white palette. For obvious reasons you cannot go wrong with the scheme of things. But, please be mindful of the geometric lines and shapes that are galloping the catwalks from the United States to Paris.

If you want to look taller, wear vertical lines. They also add a slimming affect. Horizontal lines are attention-grabbing and will make you slightly wider. The unusual shapes with elongated ends can be quit appealing. Nevertheless, your personal identity will be confirmed by adding splashes of color or animal print for the pop factor.Screen Shot 2013-05-10 at 12.12.13 PM
