The Times had a half pager from a leading retailer advertising neon as the hottest trend. Personally, I have been obsessed with bright hues for a while now and have been collecting pieces since my visit to the US in November. Even in winter the stores in New York were flooded with neon. I picked up both the tops I am wearing in this post from there.
Following a trend can be tricky and you don’t want to end up looking like a gaudy clown, so I paired my neon tee with summery white lowers. I haven’t gotten around to picking a pair of linen white pants which I think will be a savior in this heat.
Outfit 1: Wore this on a summer afternoon to lunch with my family.
Tee & Turquoise bracelet: Macy’s | Stone Neckpiece & White Pants – Bhopal(also worn here)| Grey Floral Wedges: Kolkata |
Grey Doctor Bag: Babe Boutique, Pune.
Quick Tips: Wearing with beige, pastels or white makes your overall outfit brighter. Try this over conventional blue denims!
Be bold! Accessories with colored accessories. Place the various accessory options on the top to see what works best.
Outfit 2: Wore this pink and orange neon strip shirt with gold to meet with an old friend, one evening.
Shirt – Old Navy | Gold Cuff – Express | Gold Chain Neck Piece – Society Exhibition, Pune | Shoes – Rare Boutique, Pune
Quick Tips: Gold pops up on neon pink, so don’t be afraid to accessorize |
When wearing bright uppers, tone it down with beige shoes.
