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!

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!

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
