Think Neon

Thursday, March 21, 2013
WARNING: Eyes may need to adjust to the brightness these colors produce!


Hope you heeded my warning and put some sunglasses on, because this Spring 2013 trend is a bright one. You may have noticed more and more of stores updating their visual displays, and having to squint because they're so bright. But don't be afraid, embrace it! Neon is one of those fads that I either really love or truly hate. It's never really gone away since the '80s, and I hear so many people refrencing that era as something they don't want to look back on for fashion inspiration. I think this trend is good in incriments, which is perfect since it pops up right when spring and summer rolls around. There are subtle ways you can incorporate neon into your wardrobe, and this is what I like to do whenever I wear it. It's really keeping the materials light for a feminine take and the key I often follow  is to make easy pairings of the bright hues with neutral's. This not only makes you have a sophisticated look, but it can also be a lot of fun. Kate Spade did this really well in her Spring 2013 collection, pairing and mixing different prints to switch up the bright yellow with blue and orange flowers, and in the orange with white polka dots. It was probably one of my favorite collections for the season, as was Oscar de la Renta's. He even went so far as putting neon in the hairstyles. Blogger Pink Peonies does this trend PERFECTLY! I'm obsessed with the pairing of the scarf and the neon yellow blouse.

  2. Haha, I'm glad you liked it! Thought it'd be a little fun way to draw people in. Neon is pretty great, I work at GapKids and it's literally everywhere in their clothing as well. I cannot wait until winter finally ends, I mean it's officially spring, but here in MN we have tons of snow and cold still. But I am glad we are seeing it also.

    Thanks SO much for commenting. I really appreciate it, and I love your blog. Follow back? :D

    1. Hi Rita! I love your blog so much, it's so well laid out and has some great content. So you're completely welcome and I can't wait to read more! Thank you for following me back, I really appreciate it.

      Yeah, I think it actually works best in moderation because you're leaving something to be desired. I'm not someone who likes to go all out there all the time, so PP is such a perfect example. :D
