How To Wear Neon

Apr 07, 2013

If you want to make a fashion statement for spring and summer this year, there's no better way than with a bit of neon! It's the perfect antidote to all the florals and shades of pastel out there for spring and neon is just a bit cooler. We're talking luminous greens, yellows, bright pinks and fluorescent orange! Since neon can't help but stand out in a crowd, the most important thing to remember is to wear it with confidence. We show you three easy ways to pull it off!

Accessorize

There's no need to go head-to-toe with neon! Even if you add a subtle accent like neon jewelry, a fluorescent belt or cool earrings, it will still make a style statement! Don't be afraid of clashing, this look is not meant to be all matchy-matchy so be creative! Or why not try some flashy neon sunglasses!

Balance With Grays and Denim 

This is one trend you don't want to overdo - you don't want to look like a fluorescent marker. If you choose one neon item, balance it out with a grey top or white top. If you wear a neon top, pair it with a cool pair of jeans. Pale blue jeans look really cool for spring and summer! Neon looks great with grey and whites - black can look way too heavy and take away from cool and breezy look.

Neon Beauty 

Neon nail polish is guaranteed to add some fashion forward flair to your nails. This is a fun way to experiment- try neon pink decorated with neon green for a super cool nail art look. If you're feeling super bold try a bit of neon pink lip color or gloss!

You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!

If you don't think that you'll be in a safe situation (for example, your parents try to kick you out, or hurt you physically or emotionally) than you should definitely wait to tell them. I think you'll know when the time is right. We can't tell you how they'll react, but I bet you can sort of figure it out from how they feel and act about these topics.  Remember, you are not obligated to tell anybody at all. It's personal. Wait until you're for sure ready to tell them. And when you do, tell them the way in which it's easiest. Get your point across, offer resources, reassurance, and give them time.

Hey guys, so I do kinda have a personal issue, but I need to tell my family about it. Truth is, I'm not even sure how they'll even react. Very few of my friends know, only the ones I trust anyway... I'm gay. Or at least bisexual. I kinda had a thing for girls, but that was a long time ago. I think I'm fully gay. I have a very supportive boyfriend, who loves me with all his heart. But that's not what it's about; it's actually coming out to my family, whom I know some of them are quite homophobic. Homophobia runs in my family. Sorta...  It makes my stomach turn when I think about it. I sometimes look into the mirror, look at myself and think if my conscience suddenly made me decide I was gay, or if I was born with it. Science tells us that we are born that way, due to lack of man chemicals entering a boys brain when in development. I feel like I've chosen it (even though I know deep inside I haven't) to be gay, probably because of my family almost forcing me into getting a girlfriend and such. I come from a Catholic family, to make things even worse. I'm like the only practising person in my family, but somehow I feel that they'll use my Faith against me if I come out.  So, should I just wait until I'm older? How do I know when the time is right? How will they even react? How should I even say it?  Please help!
