In the fashion world there are many trends that come and go with time and age. But neon is definitely not one of them. Of course it’s a bright colour option, but what would life be without a little variety?

As winter is soon approaching, it becomes easier and easier to throw on that grey cardigan, easy-fitting black dress, and boots every other day. But the challenge that fashion presents, is how you can shine even in the darkest, drabbest days? Wearing neon is a great resolution to take the dreary feeling out of your wardrobe, and add much needed life even during the cold winter.

This year has seen the red carpet beaming with trends of neon hair-tipped ends, neon make up, and of course fashion. So here’s a little inspiration to keep in  mind the next time you try to cop out by wearing those trusty UGG boots with everything.

One of the best ways to use the neon trend inexpensively is to try bright lip options! It compliments the proportions and warmth of your face, and allows for you to be bold in one simple application.

People often associate the yellow with summer, but that is no excuse to delete it from your wardrobe come winter. Since neon yellow is so bright, it’s super chic when paired with anything navy blue or black which don’t take away from the bright colour but allow for people to see the whole package instead of just the bright colour.

Another misconception about wearing certain neon colours such as pink is that it doesn’t read ‘sophisticated woman’, more crazy Barbie (!). But if you read between the lines you would see that neon pink looks great with the right cut of fabric and complimenting accessories. As you can see, Kristin Cavallari and Gwyneth Paltrow opted for minimal jewellery and flesh toned pumps earlier this year, to keep the focus on the dress which is the most practical option. Of course there is always someone like Nicki Minaj who can pair bright, chunky accessories with streaked hair and somehow pull it off. More power to her!

So what do you think… Will you be taking these neon trends into winter? We’re so keen, anything to brighten up our dreary days as they get shorter and darker.
