Yesterday WWD declared neon to be done by Fall. After a season filled with bright jewel tone pops of color and neon accents everywhere, I sadly must agree that this trend will probably wear out her welcome sooner rather than later, petering out as the leaves change or, if you live in LA, nothing changes but I do own a calendar. Excuse me while I remove a phenom neon pink clutch from my Nordstrom online shopping cart...
So what will take the place of color? Lately we've seen a lot of ladies taking the complete opposite route and going 100% neutral. Perhaps they missed the nude gown craze of 2009-2011, reincarnating it in a more effortless, super easy chic look.
Personally, if this trend is coming, I'm happy it coincides with summer. It is really hard not to look washed out in a pale palette from head to toe, not to mention a challenge to remain spot and spill-free. That said, it couldn't be an easier trend to embrace: just avoid a solid stark white look and invest in blousy, relaxed fits, at least for your top half.
I think it works with ankle pants too and you can even retain a little color accent so your fun Spring purchases don't get dusty.
Will you be working this trend soon?
