How to wear neon this summer #
One of the trends for spring/summer 2012 is neon! Now this trend is definitely not for wall-flowers because you are bound to stand out in such bold colours. Neon can be tricky to pull off and I can understand you might be a little nervous about looking too teenybopper or feeling like an ’80s train wreck! However I think by adding some sophisticated neon numbers to your spring/summer wardrobe, it can give just the right kind of ‘shock value’ to your look.
I recently got this neon jumper from ZARA and every time I wear it I just feel so happy :)

I’m also loving my new Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars in white with double navy tongue (link
They are super comfortable and white trainers are the perfect accessory with jeans for summer time.
Here are some neon/brights items I am loving that I think would add the right amount of POP to any look!

I recommend only wearing one or two neon items at a time. Neons pair well with neutrals like white, tan or black. Neons are not for the faint hearted, but by trying one or two pieces, you can wear the neon trend with confidence! Do you think you will give the neon trend a go this summer? xoxo
