Neon




{ 1 } { 2 } { 3 } { 4 } { 5 }

Neon is still looking like it will be quite big for spring, and while neon is probably not what you'd call "classic", I'm certainly glad that it's sticking around for awhile longer.

Neon brights are flattering on absolutely everyone, no skin tones excepted. When thinking about what neon color to choose, you want to stick with the same color palette that you'd normally wear: if you have paler skin / hair, and yellow isn't normally great on you, neon yellow isn't going to look any better. (Notice how in the last two pictures, you notice the brunette first & then the sweater, whereas on the blonde, you almost only notice the dress.)

If you have a lighter complexion and hair: pinks, reds, and blues.
If you have a darker complexion and hair: greens, yellows, and blues. and reds. and pinks. (you can pretty much pull off anything.)

P.S. - I'm hoping to snag a pair of these Audrey Silk Mules, also from Acne.

Neon is one of those things that if it's done wrong, it will be atrocious, and if done correctly is fabulous! It can be so hard to pull off, because one of thing (bra strap showing, stain, snag) it can go from fabulous to messy. But I do love it.

Love the pops of neon! It's fun to play with touches of neon to jazz up a simple outfit.

I look terrible in yellow- yellow of any shade. Perhaps because I have olive skin? I love bright pink though. And love the pink flats in that photo.

It might be the olive skin - even when I have a tan I look horrible in yellow also, and my skin has greenish undertones as well.
