The Fashion Feed: Get Noticed In Neon

Get Noticed in Neon
Designers are getting all nostalgic at the moment and bringing back the nineties neon look. This style was seen in the seventies and the eighties too and if worn with care can create a playful but at the same time pretty stylish outfit.

Block colour pieces are probably the best foundation for the neon look as you can contrast bright, garish shades with blacks, greys and beiges for a more subtle effect. This lime-topped dress is the perfect example and costs just £22.99 from Republic so it's a totally affordable option for any self-respecting bargainista.

If you want to go for more of a hippy slant you can't go wrong with this rainbow striped animal print slouch bag by Roxy. Not only is it big enough to carry all your beauty essentials but the leopard print detail and neon shading offers a double-whammy on the fashion fix front! It is currently available at Pacsun for $29.50.

Last but not least, if you're feeling a bit 'Lost in Translation' you could get wiggy with it and invest in a bright pink hair piece. I love this long fringed version from PartyDomain because regardless of how many diets we go on, not all of us have Scarlett's petite jaw-line! It costs a paltry £4.91 meaning you can be completely wild and wonderful on a budget!

Yay! I am not sure I can do bright bright fluro, but I did buy an amazing chain necklace in a bright pink, nearly neon, but less so. I'm trying to think of an appropriate neutral outfit to showcase it. Any suggestions? I'm thinking a white tee or possibly a black shirtdress...
