Trend Story: Neon or Nothing

Story by Estelle Avebuere  Photos by Celeste Chaves The Fall/Winter 2018 runways were full of fabulous trends to inspire our looks this season. Since we are well into fall now, there is no time to waste in trying something a little different. Our spotlight trend right now is neon.   Neon, alongside the 80’s trend, was seen in most major designer lines this fall, so we know this trend is not likely to go away anytime soon. At first thought, the idea of wearing neon on a regular basis seems a bit overwhelming, but we’re ready to help break it down. We have three simple looks showing different ways to incorporate color- in the brightest sense of the word- into your wardrobe this fall.   #1: A POP OF NEON No need to go crazy with the brights when rushing to an 8:00 a.m. class or meeting, right? Right. Just thrown on a pop of electric color to wake yourself up (in addition to your morning coffee, obviously), and prepare to conquer the day. #2: NEON ACCESSORIES + NEUTRAL OUTFIT Similar to adding a pop of neon, this look is about throwing on a neon accessory or two for a unique spin to your usual all-black or all-neutral look. Additionally, it’s getting chilly so it’s the perfect opportunity to stock up on bright (neon!) scarves and hats. #3: NEON ALL THE WAY   The most important accessory for this look is confidence. So long as you feel good in your head-to-toe brights, you’re sure to brighten someone else’s day and look good in the process. No ifs, ands, or buts. Live your Carrie Bradshaw dreams and go all out with the neon! Fall leads to winter, and before you know it, the year has gone by just like that. It’s never too late to add “Try the neon trend” to your New Year’s resolutions of 2018, right? Don’t let the year end without you stepping out of your comfort zone. If that means trying a bit of neon, we dare you to take the plunge.
