You’ve possibly heard of the fashion rule, “If you wore a trend the first time around, you shouldn’t wear it the second time.” Well, this rule does not apply to the neons, jewel tones and brighter-than-bright hues that have been dominating the catwalks and sidewalks this season. When it comes to summer’s brilliant brights, anything goes. Take a hint from fashion bloggers Annabelle Fleur (Viva Luxury) and Andy Torres (Style Scrapbook) — and Slice’s own Simone Paget! — and wear head-to-toe electric neons or add some excitement to a little white dress with some shocking fluorescent accessories. Because when it comes to shades that shock, there’s no wrong way to rock.
All Bright, All Right!
Dare to tap into the brilliance of the sun by wearing head-to-toe fluorescent colours and a cascading Skittles-esque necklace (ILY Couture, $49) — like Annabelle Fleur, pictured above.
Just a Touch of Colour
There’s something about white that looks oh-so-right in the summer sun. Add some shocking accessories to your little white dress — like Andy Torres, pictured below — to ensure you’re the belle of the ball.
