You don’t need to go all the way to Las Vegas to add a little neon to your life. This week on The Peacock Parade it’s all about the brightest brights! From Rebecca Minkoff purses to splashy Amrita Singh jewellery, it’s easy to infuse neon to your wardrobe.

If wearing a vibrant yellow dress seems daunting, opt for eye-catching accessories. It’s simple to drape a bag over your shoulder or  don a neon bracelet on your wrist. Be prepared for these items to act as the focal points for your ensemble. The eye will go straight to the radiant shades on your body so make sure they’re gorgeous. When in doubt wear neons against lighter shades or even white. They complement each other in the most perfect way.

Check out some of our favourite neon pieces…we guarantee you’ll turn some heads!

When I looked at this week’s incredible sales on The Peacock Parade, I couldn’t help but be reminded of some of my favourite movie and TV characters. Some styles are so iconic to certain characters – think Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz and her gingham dress – that wardrobe becomes part of the role. Here are some showbiz-inspired looks available on the site now.

Cher Horowitz (played by Alicia Silverstone)  from Clueless and her bevy of Valley Girl-plaid skirts and cropped cardigans are hard to forget. This outfit from N/Tice is like, so totally Cher. As if we she wouldn’t come to mind.

Claire Underwood (played by Robin Wright) from House of Cards is known for her ruthless nature and her sleek, minimalist approach to dressing. There’s no question she would appoint this Pink Tartan outfit to her wardrobe.

Who’s that girl wearing full skirts with a slight vintage twist? It’s Jess from New Girl (played by Zooey Deschanel). Her popular style choices on and off the show landed her a collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. This dress from Susana Monaco is definitely her.

This Pink Tartan ensemble has a retro feel…so retro that it reminds me of something Joan Holloway (played by Christina Hendricks) from Mad Men would don (get it?).

Dress For Summer

In Canada, our summers aren’t very long, which means it’s imperative that we maximize on the warm weather. Trendy summer dresses in bright or neutral shades are essential. Classic styles, including sleeveless shifts and strapless frocks, should be go-to items until early September. Like I said, maximize!

Right now on The Peacock Parade, dresses from designers, Susana Monaco and Pink Stitch are available for way less than retail.

For work, opt for this Earth-toned shift by Pink Stitch.
