Hello all! Today I will be discussing trends. I always hear people saying “I wish I could pull that off” or “I don’t think that trend would work on me”. This makes me sad to hear, because I think everyone can make a trend work for them. You may not be able to wear head-to-toe lace, but I think that’s for the best… I will be focusing on one of my favorite new trends, neon. Since most people won’t do what I do and wear 4 neons and 3 patterns at the same time like an escaped mental patient, I think the best way to try a trend is to start with something small, like sunglasses, a necklace or a thin belt, like the ones pictured above. This gives you the opportunity to try it out and get more comfortable with the idea, and you won’t make a huge investment in it if you find that you don’t like the trend. This also gives you some time to see what you would pair other colors with it and how you will form the trend in to your wardrobe, so if you move on to something more substantial, you’ll already know how to wear it. A little bigger step in to it is go with a separate, like a skirt or shorts. Then you can do a more tame top and move on from there. This way you are really trying the neon trend but if you are a newbie neoner you won’t feel entirely neon and worry you look like those sad kids at Disney World wearing the lime green shirts with their parent’s phone number on them, the poor dears. If you want to dive right in to the trend go with a bright dress. This means your whole look is neon and you are comfortable with dressing in it and accessorizing it. Some times it is good to just go balls to the wall and just do it, to get over your fear of it. But, in case you need it… A last neon resort, find shoes or a purse that follow the trend, that way you are trying it, but in the most mild way possible, which might be the best idea for you. If you are too nervous because some fool once told you your bright orange leggings where ugly when you were 9 and you’ve been scarred ever since, these things happen. You are the judge of how you want to try a trend. The most important thing about the neon trend is what you pair it with and wear it with pride! That’s a HUGE thing when trying a trend, just wear it and don’t worry about how people are looking at you. Have you ever looked at someone and been like “ugh, she is wearing floral, gross, she looks looks like a total idiot” no, and if so, you’re probably a bully, stop that. It’s totally a mental thing for people, so just don’t worry about it and try it out!
Thanks so much for reading!
