Nuts About Neon

Jennifer Lopez - neon trend SS12Brace yourselves ladies, neon is back and is bigger and better than ever!


The once tacky trend has been revived in time for Spring/Summer 2012 and is being rocked by celebrities and catwalk shows all across the globe this season. From J-Lo, Fergie & Jessica Alba, to Kim Kardashian & Co, celebs of all types have been obsessing over this latest look and inspiring us all in the process. Below are just a few examples of the celebrities who have ticked all the right boxes.


But how do I wear neon without looking and feeling like an 80′s throwback train wreck, I hear you cry? It’s simple, thanks to the fabulous designers who have not just revived this trend but also reinvented it in a way that is both cool and sophisticated, meaning you no longer need to be afraid to be bold! From chic neon blazers to colourful jeans, hints of bold to full head to toe neon, the possibilities for this trend are endless.


However, as with all trends it’s important to remember there are certain rules, some points to think about include:


1. To achieve a full head to toe look make sure to colour block, think pinks to greens and oranges and remember opposites attract.


2. For a more toned down look go for plain black clothing and think accessories, sophisticated blazers, statement neon necklaces, chunky bracelets and dangle earrings.


3. Heels. If your going to do this trend, you might as well go big, long heels.  Bright neon stilettos and statement wedges work well.


And finally, without further ado, here’s my current top picks available on the highstreet now – happy shopping!
