One year it was plaid. Then it was anything with horizontal stripes. This year, the undulating fashion wave has landed — undeniably — on neon. From orangeade colored sunglasses to shoelaces that bear an uncanny resemblance to antifreeze, neon is where it’s at this season.
In everything except baby names, the eighties is back. High top sneakers, the revivial of TRON, and Lady Gaga’s
cover of Express Yourself I Was Born This Way, are all evidence that the decade we couldn’t wait to forget is back with a vengeance.
I surprise myself in being a big fan of this neon business. Try it with organic neutrals in beige and grey, metallic silver or even white eyelet—you may find that one eensie hue gives a traditional outfit a surprisingly contemporary lift. Stick to accessories if you’re afraid of going over board. This is one trend NOT to do head to toe.
