NYFW Trend Report: Part Three, Pop of Neon

One of my favorite elements I noticed as I was New York Fashion Week trend-spotting was the way a little pop of neon turned up in many ensembles going down the runways.  The unexpected shot of bright color against otherwise muted Fall/Winter color schemes was exciting!

J. Mendel added character to an otherwise muted palette with striking cobalt pumps.  Louise Goldin's flash of lime took her modern skirt to a new level.  The orange piping on Altuzarra's collared sweater shows that even the smallest bit of neon can upgrade a look. At Rag & Bone, each look had stellar color combinations that turned up jewel tones with complementary neon hues.

What I truly love about this trend is how easy it is to incorporate into your own personal style in the coming seasons.  I am all about lengthening the wearability of the clothing I invest in, and when a typically Summer-season neon piece can be carried over into Fall and Winter - it's a win-win!  Try it yourself by layering a bright pink collared top under a beige sweater or take that yellow belt and cinch a gray jacket with it!  Not only will the look be modern and chic, but you'll find the bright color can even lighten your mood in the Fall and Winter months!

How will you incorporate a pop of neon into your wardrobe?
