Neon Pink, Orange, Yellow, Blue and Green Are The New Black
Richard Nicoll, Jonathan Saunders, and E. Tautz all incorporated neon colors into their collections and that was just from London. The number of designers that are using the bold color schemes is progressing through the fashion weeks including Milan and Paris. The trend started back in womenswear during the Spring 2013 shows and has blossomed into a full fledged gender defying trend that is a hip-hopping neon party!
Turn off the lights and replace them with black bulbs for Fall 2103 because whether yo’re a man or a woman; neons are going to blast through the front lines of fashion and march right into our closets. Wearing illustrious colors and matching them with equally bright shades will get you into the street style blogs of local photogs in your city in a snap. Pun intended.
Now for the meat! Here is how to style these odd colors.
The trend can be mixed with dull shades, or worn as a pop color in the form of an accessory but the best way to wear neon colors is together. Wear a tangerine tie, a bold green dress shirt, a bright orange suit, and brown shoes with matching contrast soles. The weather should be warm, and your attitude should have a happy sheen to it. None-the-less, neon will brighten your persona whether that was your intent or not.
A little goes a long way
For some, neons are as irregular as feathers in menswear; so wearing a full outfit of neon colors will not fly for most… wearing a pop of neon and participating in this trend is easier than you may think. A pocket square or contrast colored sole will allow for a trend to make it’s way into your wardrobe with ease. A sole is one thing, but a tie in an exuberant shade goes a long way to draw attention as well as change the way an outfit is perceived. Long story short, wearing a neon shade is both easy to do and allows you to be on trend with little effort… even if you have an agenda that requires you to maintain a stern, serious look.
