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!

Touche... I feel alone as well... I hate myself... People bully me for the stupidest of reasons, and it never ends! It's the reason I came on here in the first place. To have people that I can consider friends with a straight face (I have a few of those in real life but I'm not exactly a social butterfly. Well, I hate myself even more when I have to lie about not having friends, saying I have heaps of them, when that would be 35... I'm sorry if I offended anyone, but hey, I just assume I offend everyone I talk to... which is why I don't talk much...

Ask your dad why he won't let you go. If it's cost then offer to pay for it yourself if he won't pay and you don't want your friend to pay. If you don't have enough money right now ask your dad if you can pay him back over time by doing extra chores or something. Also calmly explain that you really like the band and really would like to see them live. Is your friend's mom or dad going with you? That might affect his decision if he's worried about your safety.

Everytime I ask my dad for something, its no. Yesterday I asked if I could go to the 5sos concert, he said no, and I asked why. He said there was no one to take me. My friend offered to take me, since she is going. I asked for money for the ticket, and he asked how much it was. I said it was $24, and he said that is too much and that he just bought me a phone yesterday. (my phone was an update, IT WAS 99 CENTS!) My friend then offered to pay for my ticket, and I told her I couldnt let her do it, she has bought me too many things already. WHat d0 i do? How do I convince my parents? It will be my first concert.

You're pretty, you're beautiful in your own way. Um, I guess you should talk with teachers/adults about it and I know it'll be tough for you, but ignore what they say and just be you!
