7 Days, 7 Trends: Neon
Author: Leah Benoit
Stand out this summer by experimenting with neon! The electric shades made a big splash on the runway with everything from tops and shoes to bags and nails. Rock the highlighter hues day and night by mixing it up with accessories and transition pieces.
For a chic daytime look, let one piece steal the spotlight. Compliment a vibrant skirt, dress, or top with modest basics. Layer a crisp white cardigan or blouse with accessories with subtle punches of color, like a classic over-the-shoulder bag or bright jewelry. Pair neons with pastels and neutrals to keep your look fresh and pulled together.
Stand out after dark with a bolder look. Accent an eye-catching skirt or top with pieces just as bright - why not show off your favorite heels, bag, and dress all at once? Keep your look clean and colorful by finding jewelry, shoes, and clutches that incorporate color blocking. Don't be afraid to mix colors! Avoid busy patterns - loud colors paired with equally loud prints can be overwhelming.
Don't limit the trend to just clothing - play with ultra-bright shades of nail polish and makeup for everyday looks that aren't so blinding!
