If the world of Alicia was the internet then #neon would be trending! I’ve always been a fan of neons, like in 3rd grade where my favorite items were my neon green hair bow with my stone washed jeans with neon green stitching and pockets and my biker shorts with the neon green stripe down the side that I paired with layered tanks! 3rd grade was totally awesome! I don’t have nearly as much neon in my life now as I did in 3rd grade, so I guess I need to step up my neon game! Like all trends that make a comeback, they come back modernized and more wearable. Here are my top picks for embracing the neon trend this summer!
1. Neon on nails!
My favorite mani/pedi shades in the summer are neons! (as shown in my must have summer pedi colors post!) I love the pops of bright on my tips and they work really well with my summer tan. My summer go to nail shade is China Glaze Shocking Pink, this is the one neon nail shade I do own so I definitely need to add some more to my arsenal! That’s why this mark. Nail This Look Polish and Bracelet set ($28) would be perfect addition. All in one set you get 2 neon polishes and 4 bracelets to mix and match.
2. Trim it in neon!
When in small doses, neon can be worn everyday. Like the neon pink trim on the mark. Get Packing tote ($40), perfect for everyday with the tan base and easy shape. This is the perfect larger bag for summer in size, shape, and design! I’ve definitely already shown my love for this bag here and here! I also love the neon blue trim on the black and white pattern on the mark. Handle With Flair Handbag ($36). Updating my handbag to one with a little neon trim is for sure an easy way to embrace the neon trend. Then there’s my favorite kind of trimmings… jewelry! I think a killer statement necklace over a white dress, or a neon arm party (like the ones in the “nail this look” kit above) would be the perfect kind of trimmings.
3. On eyes and lips!
Wait, what!?! Neon eyeshadow and lip gloss? That’s what I thought too until I started seeing it be worn! I LOVE the idea of doing a thick winged out line across the top lashes with neon eyeshadows. Pair it with bronzed cheeks and lipgloss for a super easy summer makeup idea! Perfect for day or night! Get the look with mark. Neon Gaze eyeshadow ($10) in violet fever, neon gaze, sun flash or orange sizzle. I’m personally loving the violet fever (purple) paired with mark. Neon Kisses in shade neon kisses (pink).
4. 5. and beyond… Neon wardrobe wants!
To fully embrace the neon trend I need to add more to the wardrobe. I added these neon pink lace shorts last year, but now I’d love some neon denim shorts. I’m also on the hunt for some fun tanks for work and play, neon dresses for hot summer nights and a good pair of neon pumps!
Because my neon wardrobe want list is so long check out my Pinterest board “Neon” My top two are the mark. Styling Trapeze Blouse and Love On The Lime Dress. Bold in color and easily wearable anchored with neutrals like black, nude or white. Plus super versatile to wear for work or play.
I hope I’ve inspired a little neon love in you and be sure to check back tomorrow for another installment of Wear and Share Wednesday featuring the mark. Love On The Lime Dress!
