Neon hues made a comeback on the runways during Fashion Week. Currently, striking colors are changing the game and breathing new life into what was once considered the norm for winter fashion.
Recently, Pantone released its color trend report for 2018 which truly solidifies that neon hues are dominating the industry, with colors like Lime Punch, Cherry Tomato, and the 2018 Color of the Year, Ultra Violet. Bright tones are front and center this season and we’re all for it!
Neon shades have become the alternative to the darker and richer jewel-tones that are normally associated with winter fashion. But as much as we love this trend, it’s also worth mentioning that day-glo hues can be tricky to wear. We all know when it comes to wearing neon colors it can be a love/hate relationship, so start small. Adding electric pops of color to dark and dreary outfits can elevate your look.
Here are some things to consider when wearing neon. First, combine fluorescent tones with a neutral color palette. Neutral tones help to soften neon colors which will make for a more subtle yet eye catching look. If you’re more of a risk taker, go for high contrast by pairing neon shades with black or rich jewel tones. The easiest way to achieve a high fashion look, using neon colors, is to accessorize. You’d be surprised how versatile fluorescent hues can be with the right accents.
