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!

last friday, i was home alone, my dad went to am AA meting and chiz, so i was alone for a couple og hours, i mean yeah i'm depressed, i cut, i have suicidal thoughts daily.......it's hard hurting inside..and just to see everyone pass you by like you're nothing, people judging you without knowing you. i also have social anxiety, and it really bothers me at school, so i try to walk fast in the halls, and i'm tense a lot. people criticize me once in a while.... ive been through some stuff, i've seen my mom abused infront of me thousand of times..........it's just hard...life. i'm scared to deal with it. so i made a noose, tried to attempt. long story short, my friend called the police, i got sent to the ER......my dad doesn't trust me alone for a mere 3 seconds, cause he thinks as soon as he turns his back i'll cut myself, or hang myself

So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?  Ello and I thinks he likes you and feels your the close enough friend what he can joke around with. He doesnt want to offend you or upset you and that shows he cares about your feelings. Me advises is take your time and see how your friendship develops.  If it feeels natural to ask him does he like you then ask him and theres no rush :) Good luck :love
