Bright Spot For Spring
Over the years, neons have had their turn in the fashion spotlight with varying degrees of success. But this spring they’re back in a more sophisticated way than their original 1980s appearance.
These highlighter hues were all over the runways at Fashion Week thanks to designers like Tom Ford and Valentino. While a neon green tulle maxi dress may not necessarily be seen around the Summit City, local retailers are stocking separates in bright pink, tangerine, blue, green and yellow.
The chicest way to pair these pieces is with crisp and tailored neutrals, especially in various shades of camel. Those wary of neon clothing could opt for accessories such as sandals, handbags and jewelry.
The shoe department at Von Maur features neon options by Katy Perry, Free People and Jessica Simpson. As for makeup, if bright shadows and lipsticks are more appealing, try MAC Cosmetics matte lipstick in Candy Yum-Yum or its Art Library: Designer eyeshadow palette of 12 bold shades for lids.
