How To Beat The Fear Of Wearing Neon Colors

February 15, 2012

I know what you’re thinking, “Neon colors are not for me!” Or “They look fun, but I couldn’t possibly wear them to the office.” You’re right! Eye-popping neon colors are not for everyone, but I’m here to tell you to not cross yourself off the list just yet.

It may surprise you to discover just how flattering neon colors are to wear. It is rare to find a skintone that is not enlivened and refreshed while sporting these extremely bright, brilliant colors. The way light reflects off each neon color back onto your skin is dazzling.

All you need is a touch of these vivid colors in an outfit to make them work. Neon colors are a great way to begin transitioning your fall/winter outfits into springtime looks. Start by adding a little color to your everyday outfit and you are set!

If I haven’t won you over yet, just know you can easily apply the same styling tricks (below) with Spring’s other popular color palettes, brights and pastels.
