Neon

John Marine | 12:54 PM | | | | |
These days, neon has become quite the trend. I'm not talking about the Dodge Neon- I'm talking about neon colors. I regard neon as I usually do Cyndi Lauper- things that (for whatever reason) HAVE to escape the '80s time capsule just to haunt the modern world... again. You could probably blame the '80s for yet another resurgence of this trend. However, there is no denying what kind of impact neon can do for your wardrobe. The blog post here is about neon colors.

NOTE: Some things mentioned in this blog may appear again in a future post on StyleSpace.





--- Neon at a Glance ---

Such bright colors are not only exclusive to females and feminine fashion. In fact, there are some males that even wear some neon- like neon active sneakers. The one criticism about neon is that some people feel such bright colors make some people look like a highlighter. Personally, I think neon is best done in moderation. It is great to have neon colors for color blocking. Don't wear too many neon-adorned pieces at once.



--- Neon in Pictures ---

How bold can neon be? Take some inspiration from these items:

neon pumps
^ from: www.amazon.com - A bold statement for your feet can be made with neon shoes.

neon sneakers
^ from: www.amazon.com - Lately, neon active shoes have trended.

neon dress
^ from: www.shopbop.com - A serious pop of color can be had with neon garments. This neon mini dress, for example, is sure to turn heads.

colorblocked neon
^ from: www.neimanmarcus.com - Color blocking with neon can be powerful. Here is a dress with neon color blocking.


Up next are [many] bloggers that showcase their neon style.

--- Neon: Final Thoughts ---

If you want to make a statement by showing a pop of color, say it with neon. Just be careful to use neon wisely. Be bold with color, and don't fear looking like a highlighter. The right amount of neon can deliver quite a punch of style. So go ahead and rock neon if you're good at it.

It was crazy this last summer. This trend was everywhere in my country. I would go for the neon shoes or a statement neon necklace. Happy New Year!
