The material once reserved for scuba suits and laptop sleeves has more recently been seen everywhere from models on runways to your everyday fashionista at dinner. Neoprene, the material hybrid feeling like a cross between foam and rubber, lends itself to a variety of wardrobe-related uses since it can showcase bright colors in their truest form, while also maintaining the shape of clothing amazingly. If your modern tastes are less inclined to soft chiffons, and more drawn to avant garde structural shapes, neoprene fabrics are something worth considering! – Tram @ Phi-Style.com

Its been awhile since I’d checked out JCrew‘s wedding options, but they’re still kickin’ it with great designs! I love the shorter dresses for elopements or city hall, and the long ones are just chic for any kind of wedding!

With this minimalist Derek Lam, the dress is the main focus and you don’t need much else except a smiling face.

Perhaps not THE most important accessory a bride carries or wears on her wedding day, but an important one nonetheless. Where else to keep your lipstick, some tissues, and your cell phone? No need for a clutch on your big day? A pretty clutch would also make a great bridesmaid gift! Currently loving these great super-boxy, angular clutches. – Tram @ Phi-Style.com

Gingham may not necessarily be synonymous with “modern,” but with a keen styling eye, gingham is a great way to add a twist to a modern palette. It’s fun and whimsical, and can be easily adapted to a variety of color palettes and stylized details. Also, have you seen that drapey organza Marc Jacobs dress up there? LOVE! – Tram @ Phi-Style.com
