I first noticed the neon trend when I was attending the SS12 press days in London late last year. Pretty much every brand that I saw had something neon or fluro in their collection and I knew it was going to be big! Since then, I have been watching online as all of the stores are slowly releasing the trend. So many items are now in neon and I think it’s amazing! I’m a big fan of the trend!
I know for some of you it’s a flash back to the 80’s, but since I was born at the end of that decade, I wasn’t around for it so I am excited to be wearing it now! The image above is from the Aldo collection, but I have included some of my favourite neon pieces for Spring/Summer 2012 below! What do you think of the neon trend? Those Brian Atwood heels are incredible! I also adore the neon Marc by Marc Jacobs bag and of course, neon denim!

i love neon, but since i’m a bit darker of skin tone, i thinks it’s to hard on me, and gives me a pale look. still love it though

Glad you like them Darel and Fashion Freak!
I don’t mind a little neon here and there but Im no great lover of all things neon. I think its cool that we’re seeing a lot of things coming back, 50s 70s 80s lol even 90s and noughties (I heard someone in ’09 refer to people wearing a style that was big in ’06 as sporting the post-noughties revival, I thought that was crazy). However, it seems like not even just fashion but cinema, tv ( you know just countless remakes or rerelaesing something but in 3D) it just doesnt feel that original, everything seems to be a reference to something from before. I think its cool to add modernity to update these styles and so in that sense theres a freshness, a newness but I really would just love to see something that feels really original. Anyway I went on a bit there sorry lol. I like the neon pastels though, I think its a less way to try out this trend.
I know what you mean Sophie! It’s even the same with music actually, a lot of R&B artists are taking dance songs and putting their own words over them, so it is everywhere. Maybe everyone ran out of original ideas lol? I wonder what else there is to do? Pastel neons are super cute though, I love them!
I’m still a bit upset about this trend. We will see…! 🙂
New Post On My Blog
I think you might grow to like it 🙂
I’m actually lovin’ the neon trend but in small bits as in one stand out piece only per outfit. I’ve got my eye on the Celine Box in the neon orange! I’m sure it will only ever be my wish list item but a gal can dream 🙂
That’s how it should be worn in my opinion! Otherwise it would be way too much lol 🙂
Thanks for your comment, your blog also is great,
I follow you on facebook. Kisses

I love your blog! I’ve actually been here a few times before in the past, reading your review on a pair of shoes we (now) both own!
I’ve just added you to my favorite new blogs. I’m really curious to checkout your upcoming posts!
The Queen of Hearts
Oooh which shoes were those queenhearts?
Ooooh that Marc Jacobs neon bag, yes please!! xx
I think it’s the most popular Kaitlyn!
I love “neon” (and also your blog!)
In the beginning of the post I started counting the items I liked the most but as I kept scrolling down I realized I couldn’t remember all of them :)) Such a great selection! Love the new neon Marc Jacobs bag, the one from Proenza Schouler, the iPad case, the neon pink watch, the shoes from TopShop and… most of all the other stuff! Neon is going to be BIG!
I’m excited you feel the same was as me! Neon is going to be really huge and I can’t wait! It’s so exciting 🙂
I think the only one I could see myself using would be the MJ neon bag…everything else is almost too much for me.
Ha ha, that’s the one I think I would wear most! Or the watch!
Original color 🙂
I LOOOOve your Neon post!!! Such a positive feeling …. it makes you smile!
It’s gorgeous isn’t it Yana 🙂 Oh it makes me smile too Nina!
I loveee neon! Check out Claire Viver fold over cluth in black…it has a neon yellow trim that is to DIE for. Now following you follow me back!
thanks for your sweet comment! love your blog. this post about all the neon colours makes me even more wish for summer to be here already!!
Thanks Emily and nina! Glad you love neon as much as I do!
I wouldn’t wear head-to-toe neon, but an accessory or a single garment paired with something neutral would be a better solution. Great selection!
That’s how it should be worn I think, just one piece! It might be too much otherwise!
aww I wish I could have all this items <3
Oh so do I!
Oh god you picked some awesome items, specially the litlle bags and the yellow shoes from topshop 🙂 I’m in love! *
Glad you like the Sofia 🙂 They are all gorgeous I think!
I love this trend & so many of the great pieces you’ve shown here! Totally lusting over the Brian Atwood pumps & Alice+Olivia shorts <3
I know, aren’t they gorgeous?
I’m excited about this trend in the summer too! I wonder how designers are going to incorporate that into their formalwear? Your thoughts?
I came across your blog and let me just tell you that your outfits are really nice! Love the way you dress. 😉
Thank you very much! I appreciate that 🙂 As for formal wear, I’m not sure if they will make pieces in neon for that, the two kind of clash, but if they did, I am assuming they would make the neons pastel and muted, more wearable then!
I love neon !!Just bought a fleece jacket and a puffer jacket in these brights 🙂
The fleece jacket sounds interesting and so does the puffer jacket. Do you have pictures? 🙂
