FASHION FROM ABROAD: Electrify Summer

With her effortlessly sarcastic droll, Meryl Streep said it best in The Devil Wears Prada, “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” It’s officially summer, so abandon the status quo and dive into neon’s bold glow.

With festival season in full swing, neon has invaded cities across the globe. From headbands to bandeaus, hot shades are a staple of the concert circuit. If you’re not heading to a musical mecca, fear not Fashionistas! Neon can be worn in your every day looks. After all, what better way to make your own music than in a knockout neon number?

Neon can translate into any style. This Fashionista intensified boho chic with a neon twist. She donned a pair of brilliant high-waist neon shorts with a tribal print. I just love the silhouette that high-waist shorts create, they form curves while slimming the waist.

She paired her neon with neutrals to make her piece stand out. Nude oxfords add a demure touch, since wearing neon from head to toe is a fashion faux pas. A plain white T-shirt perfectly complements vivid prints. It breaks up the pattern of the shorts so the eye isn’t overwhelmed.

She also embraced a throwback to the ‘60s by popping on a floppy wool hat. I think this is an adorable accessory for virtually any outfit. Pick one up in a fun shade to spice up any outfit. I love that hats are coming back. I long for the days when everyone dressed to the nines, hat in tow. I can’t help but think of classic movie scenes where gumshoes wore fedoras and flappers topped off their looks with bucket hats.

Swap out the separate pieces for an entire neon ensemble, like this mesmerizing dress. Don’t be shy, light up the day or night with some electrifying neon.
