The New Neon

We have rounded up some amazing style inspiration for the current sophisticated neon trend, as seen in page 14 of our January issue.

If the idea of neon seems daunting, wear it with neutrals like London based stylist  does in Christopher Kane. The texture of lace worn with neon adds a demure dimension to the  style, as demonstrated by our Editor Apasia Karras.

If you’re looking to go bold, the other side of the spectrum is Kate Bosworth in Proenza Schouler, flanked by the label’s designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. Emma Stone also went all out in a Christopher Kane dress and contrasting yellow heels for an appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. And if there was ever an on screen character who epitomised ladylike haute it has be Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf, here Leighton Meester wears a Moschino blouse with a colour block skirt from the Carlos Miele Spring 2011 collection.

Slight accents of neon will also work this season, even if shocking colour has never been your thing before- crochet and tweed with a minimal amount of brights are effective and modest enough for even the shyest fashion maiden.
