One thing that I love about the summer, besides the warmer temperature, is the chance to rock bright, neon colors! It’s out with the drab darks and in with the bold, eye-catching highlighter shades! Neon colors make me want to sing, “Let the sun shine in.” They make me want to grab a Pina Colado. More importantly, neon colors make me want to be BOLD and make a statement, which is always a nice benefit of good fashion. Now, neon can get a little cheesy; think Katy Perry in her Last Friday Night music video or Zenon in her futuristic outfits that were way, way ahead of our time (who said the 21st century was going to look like that?). However, if you want to channel wearable neon fashion, then check out Tiffani Thiessen’s style on Saved by the Bell. This television sweetheart could rock anything and so can you!
Dare I say it? Summers in Atlanta can get extremely hot. Bandeaus and bodycon skirts are staples on the Atlanta fashion street scene. While neon can be left to just sports clothing and EDM festivals, where is the fun in that? Wear neon in an everyday setting! Simply tone it down with some black, gray or white. If done right, neon colors can very well be your best bet.
This Fashionista had an eye-catching style. Her whole look was put together, down to her hair and makeup. Her outfit took center stage with her hot pink bandeau top and black midi skirt with complementary neon colored geometric shapes.
You can make this look happen too. All it takes is a neon top and a bottom with geometric designs that really stands out. (Also remember that if you can’t quite find a neon piece like this one, you can go for an equally cool neon shoe, swimsuit or bright eyeliner. As always, the possibilities are endless!) Complete your look with an up-do like this Fashionista (because after all, it is hot) and some jewelry. The outfit is complete and now you are ready to take over your own universe!
