Neon-Matic

The neon trend has finally found its way to the Southern Hemisphere, and we can expect some blazing hot and incandescent looks ahead. From designers to celebrities, bloggers to street style icons, the fluoro frenzy has taken the fashion world by storm. While it's not really ideal to wear blinding orange or glaring green from head to toe (unless you want to be fined by the fashion police for disturbing the visual peace), you can add neon to your wardrobe in small doses. These are some of my favourite fluorescent finds.


Green
First Row: Neon green reflective sunglasses by DSquared £156 at Shopbop. Lumo green scarf, £14.95 at Nelly.com. Casadei ballet pumps £200 at Farfetch.com

Second Row: Adia Kibur neon stone necklace, $54 at Shopbop. La Mer Collections neon pink motor chain wrap watch, $120 at Piperlime.com  Bottega Veneta Intreccatio Dream flats, $445 from Mytheresa.com

Third Row: Diane von Furstenberg Harper envelope clutch $365 at Shopbop. Vivienne Westwood draped corset top. Budding flower Alice band, $3.80 at Forever 21.

Yellow
First Row: Juicy Couture neon starter bracelet, $62, Forzieri.com. Bow pendant necklace, $13 at Delias.com  Fluoro yellow Cambridge Satchel, $170 at JCrew
Second Row: Christian Louboutin Havana patent leather brogues $425 at net-a-porter. French Connection Mimosa Mist sequined shorts, $120 at Piperlime. Toywatch ring embellished with Swarovski crystals, €95 at Jades24.com
Third Row: Cut 25 crepe de shine sulphur high-low skirt, £125 at Oxygenboutique. Bellissima geometric cut-out cuff bracelet $40 at Endless.com. Jimmy Choo Abel pumps at $525

Hi Sam! Thank you for stopping by. I followed your blog as soon as I came across it, I'm the follower with the catwalk lights. Love this post, I just bought the Harper Clutch from DVF in emerald green for Fall. Love it, and these are all great pieces featuring neon.

Kate Frenkel said...

Orange selection is lovely but I'm not a fan of neon trend... don't have any neon piece except one acid pink nail polish I bought couple month ago and haven't used it yet...

I love the neon yellow color items the most! So bright and awesome, especially that asymmetrical skirt :) So many great items. I also really like the orange blazer.

Elly @ Caribbean Living said...

These are so fun!! Love all your style boards Sam, they're fabulous.
The green scarf, orange pouchette and pink pumps are ringing my bell - normally I'm too much of a wimp to try anything like this but I think you may have persuaded me with this post!

I love seeing what is hip in other parts of the world. I love it that you provide the South African perspective. I do like neon, but in smaller doses.

Ann said...

Those are so fab!
Although I think I would mix and match,
that would be so cool.

Vanisha @ Vanishas Life In...Australia said...

Such a bright post! I would definitely incorporate them into my closet with accessories...bags and scarves would be most likely for me! I'm not sure about clothing though, it looks fabulous on others! xoxox

trishie said...

i love seeing this trend on other people but personally don't think i can pull it off!

Ember Drake said...

Oh my gosh that green board is just blindingly bright! I don't think I could pull this colour off as a major part of an outfit but would definitely give the neon green bag a try - it's gorgeous!

My favourite board is the hot pink - you've chosen some really amazing pieces!

Hi sweetie! Woww.. what a vibrant neon colors! Though I'm more a pastel girl, I agree that adding a bit of neon touch can level up the whole look. Neon accessories would look awesome too I think.. ^_^

The green items are great, then the pink ones (looove it, you know, we have taht in common too!) - but the pink ballerinas I have already (great! And they are comfortable!) and finally, loved the yellow cuff! This trend is nice, but apart from some "little items", like bracelets, shoes or bags, blazers can look very dated in some time... well, the orange one will last long!

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

you hit it right on the head Sam...SMALL DOSES! LOL i love the orange. i think a pop of colour does any outfit good. nice choices and selection. have an awesome week!
