Trend Alert: Neon Hues

Next season is all about shock value! Take a look at Spring’s latest color palette: NEON. The impact of a vibrant, neon hue is the perfect fix to lift us out of our winter blues.

Spring 2012 runways unveiled a fresh spin on the color blocking trend by placing vivid prints with high-voltage neon shades. Peter Som played around with different textures and prints, while Ruffian and Rebecca Minkoff paired bright neon shades with graphic, geometric designs.

Not everyone can pull off monochrome, even if Cushnie et Ochs makes us think we could. Showstopping shades call for more conservative silhouettes, so take a more toned-down approach to this loud Spring trend and opt for isolated pops of color.

From Rag & Bone’s electric blue blazers to cut-out tanks at Nanette Lepore, just about anyone can implement this look into their every day wardrobe. The celeb-friendly fad has already been spotted on some of the industry’s most fashionable, including Ashley Greene, Freida Pinto and Kate Bosworth.

Will you be trying the neon trend on for size this Spring?
