I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for anything verging on the tackier end of the colour spectrum, but this season’s catwalks, which are awash with highlighter shades, have taken things well and truly to the next level!
Over the past few weeks I’ve managed to amass this collection of neon beauties, all of which have been a complete bargain:
Now as much as I love this season’s neon trends, I’m under no illusions that it’s going to fade as quickly as it appeared, which is why most of my purchases are from Primark. If you’re going to go whole hog with this trend think carefully before investing in pricey pieces – you’ll feel far guiltier if you buy a pair of £40 neon jeans and never wear then than if you’d spent £8 on a pair of Primarni pumps! However, anyone who’s read Caitlin Moran’s brilliant ‘How to be a woman’ will know that every woman should own a pair of yellow court shoes, which is why my £25 Topshop courts (which I’ve named my Rihanna shoes) are well and truly staying.
So how do you wear the neon trend without looking like you’ve just stepped out of the 80’s (and not in a good way)? Well, unsurprisingly, the key to pulling it off is less is more. Neon can make you look like you’re a guest at a Big Fat Gypsy Wedding very, very easily (a line which I’m sure I’ve trodden on many an occasion), so here are a few tips on how, and where you can get away with it!
