I blame it on the Kardashians. I wish I didn’t have to admit that. But I will. I saw Kim Kardashian sporting the ugliest neon outfits like six months ago, maybe a year. And I was like “WTF is that”. But I also thought to myself, “this is going to become a trend”. An as an 80’s kid, I was kind of, secretly excited. (I mean, our outfits were kind of awesome) As a designer, you start to pin point where trends start and more often than not it’s with fashion. Then into accessories, home goods, and so on. So if you see a trend on the runway, even if in the wildest of outfits, you will see it maybe incorporated in more subtle ways – like on an iphone case. So although I’m kind of digging the neon, I can see incorporating it more into my life via subtle ways as opposed to a bright sweater or a watch.
I’s definitely not for everyone, but there’s no denying that neon is making a comeback. I should have held onto my awesome neon ski suit from the 80’s and I’d totally be in fashion.
