Let me start by saying that I’ve been strongly against this whole neon thing from the start. It’s a little too acid-washed denim and 80’s-inspired for me. Plus it’s something that probably won’t become a classic.
But, like menswear-inspired oxfords, my tune is slowly starting to change a little. Don’t get me wrong. You won’t see me in head-to-toe neon anytime soon, no matter how much I like some of the looks I’ve seen fashionistas rocking. But I am starting to like little pops of it, especially when paired with neutrals (neons look especially good with beige and gray).
Pairing neons with neutrals tones them down a bit but still provides a fun color pop. I’m especially loving that first cardigan from Gap.
What are your thoughts on neon? Are you in love or are you skipping it? I’m considering adding a few inexpensive neon accessories into my rotation (I’m not feeling neon investment pieces because who knows how long this trend will stick!).
