Neon Sophisticate


When you think of neon fashion your first thought is probably the 80s! However, many of the fall runway shows prove that neon can be so much more. Many fabulous designers are taking a more modern, edgy, and sophisticated approach when it comes to bright colors. They're taking a huge trend and updating it to make it more relevant for the modern day girl. The best way to wear hot pink, orange, blue, yellow, and green is to tone it down with black. I love that this look can even be work appropriate.

I love these brights, especially the pink Kors dress. And I wouldn't mind a fluorescent wallet like the one you pictured!!

ohmygod that coat! That Thakoon coat is fantastic! (I could never wear it though... the color on my skin would make me look like I've been barfing for 6 hours straight.)

These are great examples. 100% agree - neon can be chic and professional. I just love that first dress. Belle of the ball!

I'm a big fan of MK's fall 2009 collection. The simple, sophisticated styles are a great foil to the neon colors.

Style Redux said...

Sanity Fair- That first dress is unbelievably gorgeous.

Style Redux said...

APT- I'm lovin' all the bright colors for fall.

Style Redux said...

ticklish- I think that J.Crew coat is amazing. You don't see that color often in coats.

Style Redux said...

Averill- Yes, his whole collection is just so flawlessly executed.
