Be the trend, Go all Neon

Not so long ago, whenever one was caught dead in neon, they were ridiculed and laughed at. Little did the people know that neon was going to be the next chic trend to look out for. Today, the neon rage has sent the people flying towards the store and pick out their choice of apparel in a bright, sunny shade of neon

The neon trend was first spotted on the runway in Spring/Summer 2011 fashion show. After trickling down, its now hit the masses and become quite a rage, especially among the youth. I think one of the big reasons that this trend appeals to people is that its brightness instantly lights up the surroundings and takes away from the dullness that life can tend to be.

Ways to wear Neon:

1.  Neon nails and jewellery: Best for that perfect pop that flashes everyone once in a while and is gone the next. It is suitable if you don’t want to catch too much attention.

2.  Neon accessories (Shoes, Bags, Belts): If you’re feeling more confident about carrying off the bold color but don’t want it to take the limelight then you can go for a neon bag or shoes. They highlight the outfit and accentuate the features. Make sure that the neon of the accessory is in the color family of the outfit otherwise it could go horribly wrong.

3.  Neon clothes: If you’re feeling bold then you can go for a neon outfit altogether. The key to making a neon outfit work is to not go over the top. A single piece such as shorts, skirt, shirt are a popular option. A day dress in a neon color would also be good but requires perfect accessories.

So basically the key to remember while wearing neon is to keep it subtle, be bold and carry it off with a panache.
