Move over gold and silver jewelry, experiment with bright coloured neckpieces, earrings and other accessories this summer season and pair them with solid monochromes for the best effect this summer.
From bags to shoes and accessories, neon colours are the fashion pick of the season with stark pinks, greens and yellows appearing on nails, flats, belts and bags. From Sarojini Nagar market to the fashion trove in GK I M Block and even in the likes of Vera Moda and Aldo – neon in the new black.
While men have to be a little careful about going neon, subtle streaks of green or yellow in t-shirts and shoes gave a nice sporty twist to the summer wardrobe. Neon streaks however have also started appearing in belts and ties.
For women, the choices are abundant. The only pointer is to pick the right colours and pair them well. When going neon, one has to make sure that it is not over done. Greys, whites, blacks, even pale pastels can be played around with when it comes to neon accessories. A basic t-shirt and jeans ensemble can be given a new kick with neon flats or a neon belt. And even neon frames.
For the mornings go easy on the clothes. Since it is summer it is perhaps best to play with pastels and whites or even light greys. A neon pendant or ear rings or alternately a bag can completely turn your look around. A pale neon t-shirt paired with pastel shorts gets a thumbs-up from us. A neon watch is also a perfect summer accessory. For the night, blacks and stone greys and dark shades can be lifted with neon necklaces and heels.
Neon on the nails has been quite big for a while, but please keep in mind – bright colours look best on short nails. You can also experiment with extensions and neon tips – but make sure you are getting them from a good studio. You can add a little bit of glitter for the extra zing. And as we always say, carry the blingy attitude with it and you would never go wrong!
