What do Tom Cruise, Audrey Hepburn and the cast of Twilight have in common? Not much really, apart from the fact that they each have varying degrees of stardom and, at some point during their careers, have contributed to the Wayfarer revival.
The resurgence in popularity of Ray-Ban’s hippest shades cannot be denied — everybody either has or wants a pair of Wayfarers. In addition to this comeback, bright colors and neon are also back in action and trendier than ever this season.
I love to play with new trends as they come and go, but I have been seriously struggling to find a wearable way to sport neon. In large capacities, like shirts or dresses, highlighter hues really don’t do anything for my skin tone. But thanks to this Fashionista, I have a new way to make this trend work for me. If you find yourself in the same situation when it comes to wearing neon, just remember to choose modest, basic pieces to go with your retro frames and other bold accessories. Skinny jeans, neutral sandals and a cropped top in warm purple look fabulous on this Fashionista and allow her yellow sunglasses to be the focal point of this ensemble.
Unless you are on your way to an ‘80s party, please refrain from wearing every neon piece you own in one setting. Less is more when it comes to bold color additions. CollegeFashionistas are always the first to sport outrageous new trends and piece together the unexpected, so just make sure you remain true to your own style and don’t go overboard with all the colorful trends this season.
