Hey StyleLeeders and Hello Neon! I’ve been anxiously waiting on you since last summer and I promise I won’t wait on you this long ever again. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’ll ever get over neon shades. Neon hues are always a good idea. But in the summer time its a great idea because the vibrant hues help to spice up any hot summer day. It truly epitomizes summer and is even better at offsetting a tan. Sadly summer is almost officially over so I wore my brightest summer fit over the weekend to bid my farewell. Though I have no qualms about wearing neon year round either, haha.
Whenever I see bright neon shades I automatically think back to my childhood days when I would fill my pencil case with neon highlighters. As a child I never did quite understand the purpose of using a highlighter. I only wanted them because I was amazed at the brightness of a magical ‘pen’. But by high school all my books were overrun with highlighter markings—line by line, page by page. Now in adulthood I no longer have an obsession with highlighter pens but instead any highlighter color shade on any article of clothing. Hence this bright yellow, neon skirt.
Over the weekend I went fresh and chic by pairing a sleeveless blouse with a neon collar, tucked in a neon skater skirt and completed with gold, caged heels. It’s the perfect monochromatic combination of color and texture. The neon collar on my blouse pairs seamlessly with the neon skirt adding to the glow effect even more. In fact, I think this outfit almost qualifies as reflective safety gear, haha! All together, the look makes a pretty bright statement. Don’t you think?
My outfit may be a tad bit bold for some. So if you aren’t too familiar with neons then I suggest you combine only one neon piece with either black or white. That way there’ll be some balance in your outfit and you won’t look like the reflectors on bicycles. But hey if you’re like me and don’t mind the blinding neon shades then by all means go all out!
What are your thoughts on Neon shades? YAY or NAY? Summer Time ONLY or All Year Round? Let me know in the comments below. Talk Soon. Nuff Love, Natasha ♥
