What’s trending: NEON!

To all you colour craving fashion lovers, there is no need to fret. Just because summer is over and colour blocking feels like a trend of the past, I have something new for you. It’s called neon, and it is everywhere! Yes, that’s right, those highlighter pens which you used back in school are the colours of this spring. So there is light at the end of this wintery tunnel we are heading towards, a fluorescent light you could say, and it will be beautiful.

Check out some of these neon looks.

Steal Her Style: Rachel Bilson

Take a leaf out of Rachel Bilson’s book for simple but stylish Spring looks.

Pair fresh turquoise tones with neutrals and bold prints for a look that will take you anywhere. Choose interchangeable accessories and you have more fashion for your dollar.

Change it up and pair the turquoise top with the grey skirt or the white top with the printed pants. These versatile pieces will last right through Spring and into Summer.

If the bold pants aren’t for you, change them for some grey peg-leg pants and maybe find a printed turquoise top to keep the look stylish.

From Winter to Spring

Finally, spring is here! And while the days can be quiet warm if you’re out in the sun, it can also get very cool when you’re not. So for the perfect spring ensemble pull out some of your summer shorts and pair them with a nice tee and a blazer [my most worn item of clothing]. It doesn’t matter if you wear denim, black or white shorts or a coloured blazer other than the usual black, this look is classy and fresh and can take you from day to night. Just add some extra jewellery and some heels to perfect your night look.  Another plus, is that you don’t need to break the bank as these staple items are probably already in your closet.
