Trends are tricky. They are fun, short lived and they come around again and again. They also require some customization. Anyone can wear any trend, as long as they make it their own. The neon trend this year is one that I find especially tricky for most women, including myself, to translate to real life.
I have never liked neon and like peplum and hi-lo skirts, I thought this would be a trend for me to pass on. But one morning towards the end of pregnancy I woke up with an inexplicable urge to paint my nails neon yellow. The ONLY thing I felt like doing that day was going to get a neon yellow pedicure (yes I am strange like that). Enter my issue with pedicures- they cost too much and I always think I could have done just as good of a job myself. So alas I did not go to the nail salon. I did however go to the grocery store and by some miracle guess what color I found for a mere $3? The neon yellow to make my dreams come true. (Find it here.)
So, I have been turned on to neon. But there are a lot of colors that fall under the neon category. Are they all okay to wear? Not in my book- neon yellow is the safest option. I don’t mind a little hot pink or possibly neon orange- but my advice is to stick with yellow. Also when you wear neon either choose one or two small accessories such as nail polish and a belt or one large item like a scarf or jacket. Very few people can pull off more neon than that in one look!
