Would you wear next season’s controversial trend? I’m still not sure

  • Blake Lively, Rita Ora and Kim Kardashian have both endorsed this new trend for AW18, and it’s dividing opinion. I’m referring to the neon trend. Yep, it’s back with a vengeance, after four years on the sideline (it was huge for SS14, and let’s not forget last season’s Balenciaga sock boots).

    Blake opted for a lime green Versace suit while promoting her new film in New York this week, while Kim Kardashian has been exclusively wearing brights for the past couple weeks, from a hot pink Yeezy dress to lemon Versace maxi and even a lime green wig to match her Lamborgini (because why not?).

    On the catwalk, Prada, Versace, Marni and Moschino all had flashes of colour in their collections, and now the high-street is following suit, a sure sign that the trend is going to be big next season.

    With that in mind, here are a few neon buys that are available to buy now.

    I’ll be honest, I’m still on the fence with this one, and the head-to-toe look isn’t for me – or most people I reckon. That said, perhaps a touch of highlighter pink or lime, on say a pair of earrings or bag, might be a nice way to ease into it without going overboard.
