Trendspotting: Neon!
Celebs are loving neon!
Calling all aspiring fashinistas! Do you want to stay on trend this season? Celebuzz has your summer style breakdown from AGAVE DENIM’s founders Jeff and Lauren Shafer!

Stars like Zooey Deschanel, Courtney Cox, Halle Berry, Jessica Biel and Olivia Wilde have all worn AGAVE, making them a clear favorite among Hollywood trend-setters.

So what are the color inspirations and emerging trends for summer?

What started the colored denim trend?
People are sick and tired of being sick and tired. They need a change and an optimistic attitude. COLOR IS THE NEW DRUG. It is fresh, optimistic, fun and pretty. It also allows for a great range of self expression. Agave’s men’s colors are earth-tones and military inspired. Our guy is a guy’s guy. Agave’s women’s colors are fresh and floral…[our favorites include] pink, rose, lilac and brilliant blue.

What summer trends should we look for in the world of denim?
Color goes crazy from florals to sherbet to neon. Denim goes from dark indigo to pale blue chambray to bleached out white. Prints are hot. Polka dots are doable, flowers all fresh, tie dye is timely. My favorite is vintage Japanese wallpaper.

How should we accessorize denim for a night out?
Boyfriend shirts, boyfriend sweaters, boyfriend jackets. Inner-wear as outerwear but not sleazy. Flowing knit pieces with lots a drape. A bright colored accessory like a scarf, hat or hair band. Something shiny.

A casual day?
Same as night but less shine and even brighter colors. Red Lipstick and matching pumps. Bright Eyeshadow. A bright yellow skirt and a cobalt blue jacket. Have fun and be noticed!
