#TrendsTues pick for the week: NEON!

Hear what Ali has to say about the neon trend.

As a stylist, fashionista and Bride to BE, I will be strutting neon at the beach this week and on my honeymoon coming up! Neon is fun & playful when done right. There’s a way to look just as chic in these shocking colors, without stopping traffic my fashionistas ;)

My favorites in Neon right now are the bright yellow jeans from Rag&Bone and Paige Denim’s bright colored shorts!

You can find Ali’s neon picks for the day from her site Ali Levine Design.

Katja’s Picks

I admit. I lived the neon craze already once, and I had no interest going back. And with that I mean taking it to the crazy 80’s level. But when my husband (yeah, the ultimate trendsetter, said with all sarcasm) bought neon-striped Puma-sneakers a while back, I knew that I had to bring the neon out. I however, still prefer it in smaller dosages.

My top neon picks.

Melie Bianco ‘Callie’ Neon Trim Messenger Bagicon has just the right amount of neon yellow.

These Neon sunglasses
icon are only $12 but I think they should borrow Marty’s DeLorean and go back to the 80’s. However, if you want fast and cheap way to be trendy, and got the guts to pull these bad boys off, please be my guest.

For home I am all over the simple light bulb as a hanging lamp-trend, and to kick it up a notch, this Neon Green Light Cord w/ Giant Silver Globe Bulb mixed both two trends and I’m trying to think oh where I could add this.

My absolutely favorite is the Graham Leather Triple Strand Wrap in grey and neon yellow. Love, love, love it!

Puma has several sneaker-styles that pop some nice neon color. They make me want to play some Whitney Houston and Donna Summer and dance for good ol’ times sake.

The H&M necklace is cheap and for $14.95 you’ll get a nice pop of a color. It’s close enough neon to be trendy.
