Luxemi has loved Kelly Rowland ever since her Destiny’s Child days, so we were thrilled when the R&B superstar rocked our accessories on the July 2012 cover of Ebony Magazine. Want to emulate Kelly’s summer accessory style? Here’s how to get the Ebony Magazine look.

For the cover shot, Kelly is wearing a gorgeous 1950s-inspired Dolce & Gabbana midriff top and high-waisted skirt (one of the designer crop-top looks we raved about last week in our midriff post). But our favorite part of Kelly’s cover look is the way she stacked Luxemi’s Kundan Bangles with Bright Gold Finish, Thick Kundan Bangle with Antique Finish, and Gold Coin and Crystal Bracelet Set to give her Western look some Eastern shine.

On the Ebony July 2012 table of contents page, you’ll see Kelly doing justice to another of Luxemi’s favorite pieces: our Bronze and Crystal Ovular Earrings. The singer looks tribal chic in a cream-colored fringe dress, standing alongside Trey Songz. We love how our dangling earrings pick up the bronze details in Kelly’s dress and add an Indian twist on her tribal vibe.

Kelly Rowland isn’t the only fashion icon we’ve seen wearing stacked enamel bracelets or tribal looks this summer. Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon and Sarah Jessica Parker are all enamored with the enamel bangle trend, and we’ve seen Rihanna and other trendsetters going tribal for Summer 2012.

Dare To Bare Your Midriff – Trend Alert + Summer Promotion

Summer 2012 is all about showing a little skin, and we’ve got just the trend to help you do it: the bare midriff. With designers from Versace to Proenza Schouler and celebrities from Freida Pinto to Rihanna putting a chic, tasteful spin on the cutoff top, there’s a whole new set of reasons to rock your favorite Indian blouse.

When it comes to the midriff, no designer does it better than Dolce & Gabbana. By pairing structured midriff blouses with 1950s-inspired high-waisted skirts, the design powerhouse gives a softer, totally tasteful edge to the tummy-baring bustier. Spring Summer 2012 collections from Versace, Preen, Proenza Schouler and Emilio Pucci all play up the midriff, pairing the crop top with a variety of separates.

Where designers go, celebrities always follow. Gwyneth Paltrow wore a stunning, black beaded Emilio Pucci skirt and blouse to the Emmy Awards, Kate Bosworth recently bared her tummy in a Proenza Schouler look, and Freida Pinto rocked a nautical-inspired midriff top and matching A-line skirt at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. (And did you see her recent midriff-baring photo spread in Flaunt Magazine?) But our favorite variation of this summer trend is definitely pairing a midriff top with trousers for a more casual look, a style we’ve spotted on Rihanna, Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lopez.

Every Indian fashionista knows that a chic blouse is one of the best ways to spice up a saree or salwar, but Summer 2012 is the perfect time to give your brocade blouse a Western spin. Luxemi’s Black Brocade Blouse by White Orchid has stunning gold brocade work, a deep-V neckline and a length that’s perfect for pairing with a high-waisted skirt or pants.

For a more casual look, we love matching the blouse with this ASOS Peplum Waist Skirt, which has a modest knee length that keeps this look on-par with runway trends. And for a night out, this Marc Jacobs Brocade Prairie Skirt provides just the right pop of color and brocade work to contrast gorgeously with the blouse. Luxemi also loves pairing this brocade blouse with a classic pair of black pants like these Tuxedo Wide Leg Trousers from Viktor & Rolf. By going with a wide-leg cut with your trousers, you’ll balance out the form-fitting cut of the blouse for a fresh, sophisticated look.

Summer 2012 Trend – Neon Yellow Everything

Tangerine Tango may be Pantone’s official color of 2012, but we’ve been seeing a whole lot of neon yellow hitting runways, Red Carpets and street style lately. Here’s how to incorporate this “it” summer color into your Indian wardrobe

neon colors runway trend

A color as punchy as highlighter yellow is impossible to ignore, so it’s no surprise that the neon hue received a ton of attention during Spring 2012 runway shows. Designers from Oscar de la Renta to Jason Wu took a bold step into 1980s territory by featuring bright yellow in their spring collections. One of the first neon yellow looks we can remember spotting is this strapless ball gown from Jason Wu’s Spring 2012 RTW collection, which is devoid of all embellishments save a simple black bow.

Which other designers have neon yellow looks in their 2012 collections? Two of our favorites, Proenza Schouler and Diane von Furstenberg, put a futuristic spin on the trend by mixing the highlighter hue with solid and print panels. One standout for us is this tailored, figure-flattering sheath dress with black side panels, chic buttons and a swatch of turquoise zebra print fabric that really ups the dress’ visual interest.

This runway trend has also transitioned to Hollywood, with high-profile celebs like Jennifer Lopez (pictured in Michael Kors) wearing neon yellow outfits on TV and out on the town.

And at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival last week, Freida Pinto rocked a neon yellow Atelier Versace dress, which was a gutsy look not just because of the bright color, but because of the thigh-high slit! If you’re looking for a lacy neon dress reminiscent of Freida Pinto’s, this Neon Lace Flippy Dress is affordable, cute, and a perfect anytime look.

If you’re an Indian fashionista looking to punch up your saree wardrobe, neon yellow is a fabulous way to display your bold personality. Not only does neon yellow look gorgeous on Indian skin tones, but it also is perpetually in vogue in India! If you’ve ever visited Rajasthan, you’ll notice that bright, bold colors are the norm in Indian street wear.

This Neon Green Cotton and Silk Saree by Neeru Kumar features gorgeous Zari work and an old-meets-new quality that makes it ideal for dressing up or wearing as is. And like the Jason Wu gown or Jennifer Lopez’s Michael Kors dress, this saree relies on color, not embellishments, to make a statement.

For a neon saree that features color blocking (also in for Summer 2012!), Luxemi has this gorgeous Printed Crepe Silk Saree by Satya Paul. This luscious saree has tropical summer vacation written all over it. Our favorite part? How soft this silk feels against your skin.

And to finish off your neon yellow look, always go for bright lipstick. Luxemi’s favorite shade of the moment? Heat Wave by Nars.

There’s no wrong way to wear neon yellow for Summer 2012. Whether you’re rocking a Jason Wu ball gown or a Luxemi saree, you’ll be sure to command attention in this punchy summer hue.
