We all know that trends are cyclical, and we have been anxiously watching and waiting for one trend in particular to resurrect from one of the most exciting decades for fashion: the 80s! Well, neon has officially made its comeback on the runways this spring, and we are SO here for it!
I think it goes without saying that neon can be a little intimidating. It is a literally a whole mood of its own. The bold hues seem to shamelessly scream, “I have arrived!” and we understand that can be a little more daring than we feel sometimes. Don’t worry, girlfriend, we are here to help ease you into it. So, whether you are ready to jump into the trend head first, or you need a little convincing, we are here to help you navigate neon this season!
For you ladies who want to take it a little slow at first, the Good Vibes Retro Graphic Tee is the perfect way to introduce a little neon to your spring wardrobe. The classic white tee features a bright pop of text that is giving us some cool + retro vibes, and there is nothing like a graphic tee to turn up your look with minimal effort. Knot or tuck the front into cutoff jeans or style with your favorite distressed mom jeans, and believe us, you’ll be on board with the neon trend real quick!
On the TOTAL opposite end of the spectrum is the Kayla Leopard Ruffle Crop Top, which packs a punch with, not one, but two of the hottest trends this season. Listen, we hear you, this one is WILD. But what better time is there to be bold than spring?! Shake off the winter dust with a refreshing pop of print and color. Not pictured: how flattering this top is on every shape and size: the ruffle across the bust paired with the loose fit throughout and elastic hemline makes this top surprisingly comfortable. You may not believe it, but there’s definitely room for tacos. If the crop cut scares you, style it with medium wash high-waisted shorts or jeans. Try it out and see what all the hype is about.
For all my classic girls branching out, the Laura Bell Sleeve Blouse offers a bold solid for a sophisticated and polished look. This babydoll fit top with ruffle sleeves is all about the bright pop of color, and it is super versatile. The simplicity of the design makes it easy to dress up or down, and it is pretty much a blank canvas to add your own personal twist with accessories. Whether you are in hot pink, distressed jeans, nude lipstick and espadrille sandals or feisty red with black skinnies, smoky eye, and pumps, we know you will love this piece as much as we do!
Similar in style to the last one we mentioned, the Athena Ruffle Sleeve Top offers a comfortable loose fit, but has a bit more vibrancy in the color with a true neon hue. This one has us craving summer sunshine and is literally begging to be worn with your spring break tan! And if you aren’t tan, this is the kind of color that helps you fake it ‘til you make it! Oh, and one more thing: this top is made of the softest material ever so that you can be super comfy throughout your busy day and look good doing it.
Now we are coming at you with a fashion triple threat! This last one offers three of the season’s hottest trends: neon, animal print, AND it’s a matching set! Let’s be honest. Matching sets are the lazy girl’s hack to staying on trend. Style the Lexus Leopard Kimono + Lexus Leopard Shorts with a solid black or white body suit and sneakers and let the Lexus Set do all the heavy lifting. With a more muted neon tone, this duo will help you stand out without being too busy. You can also style either of these pieces individually as the statement component of your outfit! Whatever fabulous variation you decide on, remember to pair with big shades and good times for a style that will have you glowing ;)
So, to wrap it all up, this spring is all about embracing your bold and daring side and showing UP! Don’t think you can pull it off? Honey, we are here to tell you that you SO can, and we can’t wait to see you rock neon in your own individual way.
