It is common knowledge that trends come and go but some really do come back quiet quicker than others. It was not that long ago when neon colors popularly pinks, yellows, oranges and greens were ruling runways and street styles and even gyms as well. As with most trends I was never a fan then and still not a fan of the trend now. I would have to say though, that if push came to shove, I would settle for the accessories rather. For example some neon green earrings here and a little bit of a neon color belt there.
Neon green has been doing the rounds in particular and our very own SA celebrities are showing us how to rock this trend stylishly.

Now as it is clear that the neon trend is back also be cautioned that neon colors can be discriminating meaning, it is imperative that one chooses a neon color that best suits your skin tone. This because such popping colors alone tend to draw a lot of attention and what you want is to create a perfect match between your skin tone and the neon color of your choice for that turn-heads you really want.
As for the rest of us [non fans]….see you on the next life neon!
Whether you’re a fan of the current neon green or not, I would love to hear your thoughts and views. Let me know if you’re rocking this trend currently and what inspired you to rock it this season. Who knows…your testimony just might inspire the rest of us skeptics!
