Style Watch: How to Wear Neon

  

      We’ve all been in love with a brightly coloured day-glo piece at least once in our lives, but been afraid to buy it because of the age old question “What will I wear with this?” Well neon is definitely in this summer and we’re looking for any way we can to incorporate a pop of colour into our wardrobes. Here are some handy tips for styling neon this season:

  • Try wearing a dark or understated colour like black, charcoal or dark brown as a base to direct attention smoothly between your neon garments.
  • If you’re not feeling quite brave enough to dawn a neon dress or top, try accenting a neutral outfit with neon accessories like a hat or bright piece of jewelry
  • Have you ever heard of the LBD? No, not the Little Black Dress, the Little Bright Dress! Try on a sleek minimally detailed dress in a bright colour with some dark accessories to ground the look.


Set 1: LBD (Little Bright Dress)

Set 2: Tropical Neon

Set 3: Orange Punch

Hopefully by the time you’re finished reading this, you’ll be more willing to incorporate neon into your wardrobe! The fact is, it’s a great way to add an element of individuality into your everyday outfits. Pick up that day-glo purse and pair of pumps and wear them with pride!

Style Watch: Summer Trends of 2014


      While spring and fall traditionally usher in the new trends for fashion and beauty, summer may be our favorite season for experimenting with clothes. The days are brighter, the weather is warmer and the urge to stand out is in full force. Here are our favourite trends this summer:

Mesh
Meshed tops and dresses allow you to wear dark colour without feeling too weighed down. Pair mesh with some bright colours to keep your look light and cheerful.

Full skirts
The voluminous silhouette popular in the 50s and 60s is here to stay. Pair the calf-length skirt with a fitted top for a great day or evening look.

White Blouses
The classic white button-down has recently been totally reinvented. Look for a peplum, embellishments, interesting textures or asymmetric cuts for a new spin.

Pastels 
Speak to your sweet side with pretty pastels in mint green, lavender or blush pink. Pair with darker accents to make your look pop.


Black and White 
No shades of gray here—look crisp and cool in contrasting colours. 

Geometric Print
Flashback to geometry class for this season’s print craze: grids, triangles, and more.


Set 1: Mesh, Pastel and Holograms

Set 2: Black, White and Geometry

Set 3: Pastel Picnic

Step out this summer knowing you’ve got the season’s hottest trends on lock and turn some heads!

Happy Silence Day

Silence Day is the name the follower of Indian spirituality master Meher Baba gave to his practice of commemorating July 10th of each year. By maintaining verbal silence for twenty-four hours, he hoped he and fellow followers would be able to inwardly reflect in ways they could not verbally. We know it’s hard to stay silent all day, so to commemorate Silence Day, we at Joseph Nogucci would like to offer some tips for meditation to help your practice of self reflection.

1) Start with the breath. Breathing deep slows the heart rate, relaxes the muscles, focuses the mind and is an ideal way to begin practice.

2) Stretch first. Stretching loosens the muscles and tendons allowing you to sit (or lie) more comfortably. Additionally, stretching brings added attention to the body.

3) Try using a candle. Meditating with your eyes closed can be challenging and cause your thoughts to wander. Lighting a candle and using it as your point of focus allows you to strengthen your attention with a visual cue.

4) Don’t stress. This may be the most important tip, no matter what happens during your meditation practice, don’t stress about it. This includes being nervous before meditating and angry afterwards. Meditation is what it is, and just do the best you can at the time.

We hope you take some time today to focus on your thoughts and reflect upon yourself and your actions. Have a wonderful Silence Day!
