Runway to Reality: Neon & Neutral

Neon & Neutral has been hot on the runway this season as seen in Christian Siriano’s 2012 ready-to-wear collection below.

Now what does that mean for us non-supermodel normal people? Well first lets look at some rules for neon & neutral. 

- Pair bright neons with creamy light neutrals. My favorite neons are yellow, hot pink and bright orange. 

- Use neon to flaunt your best asset (if you know what I mean). If you have a tiny waist opt for a neon belt. If you have killer legs go for the neon skinnies. If you love your shoulders rock a neon blazer. 

- Keep your skin tone & makeup in mind when picking out which neon color you want. I.e. make sure it flatters your tone and doesn’t clash with your makeup. If you look like a clown that’s probably a “don’t”. 

Now here is how to incorporate this style into your everyday fashion choices:

If you want to start small go for bright accessories with a nice cream colored top & white or traditional denim. Try these pieces on for size:

Yellow Ballet Flats

La Mer Neon Wrap Watch

Deena & Ozzy Neon Belt

Gap Wide Strap Flip Flop

Topshop Neon Chain

Now if you are feeling a little more brave go for one bright piece incorporated into your outfit. 

Gap Three Stripe Sweater

Splendid Top

Gap Striped Woven T

Elizabeth & James T

Forever21 Blazer

H&M Yellow Blazer

H&M Pink Blazer

And now for the brave fashionistas out there. Try these great finds!
