the neon trend

"They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway. They say there's always magic in the air"
- George Benson

When the neon trend first appeared in many of my favourite stores, I was unsure about the whole idea of it.
I mean personally, when someone 'says neon', my immediate thoughts fall upon the tragic outfits of the 80s.
Yes, the 80s had its high points in fashion history, but was it really time to bring about neon clothing again?
After months of pondering over the colours, I have finally found neon items leaking into my wardrobe, and i must say, I love it!
The first being this neon pink t-shirt from 'General Issue', who would say not to a top that pink?? And in the same outfit
today I even found myself sporting neon nails. So I think its fair to say I have been converted into a neon lover.

 
 


T-shirt : General Issue
Shorts, belt and necklace : Thrifted + Markerts
Shoes : Clarks

  7. As always, love your style. You took the neon thing and made it awesome! I like how you kept the lines very simple, and balanced with brights throughout.
