OutFit: Neon clothing
The three big trends that sum up fashion in the 1980s are: the “Miami Vice” jacket for men, girls with enormous hair and neon clothing for everyone.
The brightest and the best of the three is back for summer 2009.
Look for the shocking color palette in small doses. Unlike the overdone ’80s style, the new neon is more restrained.
Buy into the trend without breaking the bank by incorporating neon accessories into your own wardrobe.
Also, mixing neon with neutral shades makes the style modern rather than outlandish.
Neon is unexpected and whimsical, so spice up your look with a dash of it today.
