Neon 2009

Another big trend for Summer is neon brights. It is a very bold, vibrant look and not for the shy or faint hearted, LOL! The stunning and unique Agyness Deyn is photographed in this months Vogue UK, showing off this trend looking very gorgeous indeed-her whole take on this look is totally spot on, in my opinion.





All images are from Vogue UK (March 2009)
If you love the look, but like me, are not sure to venture in a full outfit version of neon, then go for it teamed with black as part of your look.

I picked up this vintage original 1980s Thierry Mugler body con top for only 50p last summer at the Collier Row boot sale, definitely one of my favourite finds of 2008 and an item I'll definitely be wearing a lot of this summer.

Will you be in neon this summer?

Hey Sharon! I love neon! I'm definitely looking around for some bright and colourful pieces to add to my wardrobe.
Hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day. Enjoy the rest of your weekend dear :)

Hi lovely!
Happy Valentine's Day! :)
I have always been into neon colors, because in the summer I get really dark from the sun and those colors look nice against my skin:)
I have to tell you I LOVE the shoes you are wearing in this photo!

Love that top! A great find.

so cute!

Skye said...

Great top - awesome score for 50p!

I feel like neon (similar to acid wash) has been around for the last three or four summers here in Australia. I think it was really bigger last summer than this one now - but we tend to do bright colours here every summer because our light demands it.

Hi Sharon,

That top with neon striped details is fantastic, my Sharon.

Oh, yes! I will be hold. U know it already I showed my new neon green Marni bag and I got (my darling) the neon orange and beige combo's sandals from Pedro Garcia. They are so much pretty. Already and of course I worn it last summer & I was popular. Haha! I modest!

Hi Sharon! Even though I don't like Agyness Deyn, I admit the neon look suits her. It's probably all part of the image that was created for her, LOL.
Your pop of neon colour on the sleeve with the all black look looks really good. And OMG, is it warm enough to wear sandals already there???
Let's see...If I would wear neon, probably in an accessoire version or like you...

The Seeker said...

Oh yes, I'm a girl from the 80's, I think the 80's were great, and I love (now, because I had my dark phase) bright colours.
So if not tottaly at least part I'll wear.
And that's a great top you found!!!

Have a nice sunday and hope you had a happy Vday.

Absolutely!

I love neon, and it is one of my favorite looks for the summer!
That said, nobody should ever wear head to toe neon. I suggest wear something bright and pair it with a neutral or something dark.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi everyone-thanks for the comments, I agree that neon is too much head to toe, unless your name is Agyness Deyn!

CalamityJem said...

Kick-ass colour is never wrong in my book & it looks utterly fabulous on Miss Deyn.
Neon brings back fond fashion memories for me!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi CalamityJem-Yes, I'll wear a touch of it too this summer!

Anchibride said...

I never in a million years thought I'd wear anything neon again (it was a big trend in Junior High school), but, of course, never say never!

Last month I picked up the most adorable neon-ish chartreuse eyelet top at a clearance sale, and plan on wearing it as soon as it's warm enough. I just need to find pants that look good with it. It's very unusual (probably why it cost only $3 and still wasn't selling lol!) but I just love it!

I also love a hint of neon "trim" peeking out from otherwise neutral color accessories!

[Tara] said...

I'm trying to figure out how to work in neon without feeling like I'm 12 again! Your top is great, because it has just a shot of color...though I do love the neon green dress from the Vogue shoot...

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Anchibride-your top sounds lovely-I'd suggest wearing it with jeans or a denim skirt, rather than buying something to go with it!

Hi tara-I agree, a hint of neon is good enough for me too, although Aggie looks gorgeous!

Karen said...

No neon, no way. And if I did, I'd wear it your way, with just a touch. This turteneck is gorgeous on you!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi karen-thanks, this is as much as I would do too!
