I’ve been dreaming of summer, and summer color trends, so much this winter that when I saw this editorial I couldn’t help but get transported instantly to a colorfully exotic and warm place. My five minute break from the real world (where we’re all layered in coats, scarves, and hats) was so nice that I thought I’d share it so that you guys could have a fashion fantasy as well! Here, photographer Nicole Bentley captures the feeling of summer in this editorial featuring Alina Baikova for Vogue Australia March 2011

 For summer, colors as vibrant as you can imagine are everywhere. Layer, mix, and match colors with varying lengths and prints for the best summer-friendly look. Keep posted for our summer preview lookbook with brights like these coming soon! 

Ah, that was nice! Are you ready for the tropics yet?
