Fashion Friday – A Hit of Neon
Welcome to my very first fashion post! I am by no means a super fashionista, but I am an excellent observer. One of the trends that I’ve been noticing lately is the return of neon.
I am old enough to remember when neon first hit the streets and oh how I wish I had photos of my awesome 80’s neon outfits and accessories!!!
I was at a Jennifer Lopez concert Saturday night and one of her many costume changes was a neon bodysuit and I loved it! Obviously, I am no JLo and couldn’t pull off a neon green bodysuit, but it got me thinking that maybe I should embrace this trend…again?
Ok let’s be real, not only can I not pull off the neon bodysuit, I couldn’t pull off this head to toe neon yellow suit either!! And no offense, but I don’t think many of you could either, lol, sorry. But I think the point is to show us an over the top trend and then we can figure out how to wear it in real life.
I could pull off a bright shoe, like the one below, and you can too!! Here are a few options if you want to jump on the neon bandwagon with me.
I love these shoes, I am on the hunt for a similar pair. I think a lot of people may be a bit scared of this color? You may be thinking, what the hell could you pair them with? You can actually pair them with lots! I would dare to say that they would go with almost everything. Think about it; navy, yes, gray, yes, black, yup, white, yes, jeans…YAS!
I follow Kelly Henderson’s blog, Velvets Edge, these shoes were part of her fav things of the week a few weeks ago (www.velvetsedge.com). Doesn’t this color look super chic and fresh?
After my night with JLo, I re-examined my closet to see if I was already following this trend without know it; and turns out I was!
I found this pair of Stella and Dot earrings that I have had for years and still wear.
Sooo my closet isn’t exactly colorful; it’s packed full of black and gray, I throw these earrings on to add a bit of color to my OOTD; which is outfit of the day, apparently that’s a big thing on social media, in case you didn’t know? Honestly, I had to google it the first time I saw it, lol.
I also just bought this bathing suit and it is perfectly on trend, yay me! Fun fact, I can look at a bathing suit and know if it is going to be flattering without trying it on. I do it all the time, mmm…maybe I should do a bathing suit post?? Sorry, I am getting off topic. Would you have thought that neon yellow and army/khaki green would go together? Neither did I, but they do!
Here’s a great way to wear this trend in real life. I snapped this pic in the Las Vegas airport; this stylish lady was on my flight to Edmonton. She was rocking her acid yellow jeans! Her shoes were super cute too. I snapped her pic on the down low, so I am hiding her face.
Well I almost made it all the way to the end without posting anything pink! I bet you were worried?? Fear not! A bright pink hoop or lip is an inexpensive and easy way to brighten things up.
I also love this neon green eye on Kylie Jenner, I am going to give it a try this weekend. I will let you know if it looked cool or ridiculous, it will be one or the other lol. I will post pics on my Instagram if you want to see: oui-liette
Thank you so much for reading my first Fashion Friday. Let me know what you think? If you are into it I will do more.
And finally is this a trend that you can see yourself trying?? Yes, no…maybe??
Sending you a bright neon pink kiss, muah!
