Summer usually means floral, pastels and all things bohemian, and while that is huge this spring/summer 2012, we’re bored of it and well.. we’re telling you it’s time to SNAP out of it! Neons are so much more fun for these sweltering summer months. Which means lots of high energy, attention grabbing looks for you to try out. Why be plain Jane in a wallflower maxi when you can bring it on in bright greens, pinks and yellows?! Since there aren’t many shopping options here in India, we’re giving you 3 must haves to incorporate this summer trend. Which will you sport?
We saw a few neon dresses that were to-die-for at Lakmé Fashion Week this time from designers Swapnil Shinde, Archana Kochhar and Soup. I think these colours go great on dusky skin tones, and hence those of you blessed with that colouring should go head to toe in it. If you’re paler, then go for neons that compliment like deep electric blue or violet teamed with the florescent tones.
… because it’s a great way to start off subtly with this whole trend if you’re a bit timid. If you want to bring in a bit of colour to the workplace without creating a ruckus, then this is the way to go. Here are some colour options from OPI that are easily available in beauty stores. Also check out the new Lakmé and Revlon nail colours, they’ve been putting out bright colours for ages now.
You should have at least one funky pair of these in your shoe closet, every girl needs one pair. I’ve seen a lot of these bright little jewels at stores in Bandra on Linking rd. Catwalk has a range of colour blocked neon strap heels that are great to wear with any outfit. If you’re starved for choice though, then head on over to good old ZARA who never disappoints.
