Music and fashion have had a relationship as steady as can be- one is always inspiring the other, whether it’s Kellie Pickler singing about her “Red High Heels” or the rock-chick inspired leather trend for fall, you can be rest assured that it’s a safe bet that these two will be together forever. This week’s fab trend takes its start from the singer of “Firework”, Katy Perry. For a woman who was daring enough to forsake her background and go all out as a pop star, Katy Perry has brought us a whole new lease on looks. From the cupcake top, to bright colored hair, Katy has done it all.
There’s one part of her recent looks that has captivated the eyes of not only designers, but the common woman. Party girls rejoice, we’re talking about the neon color trend! Whether it’s in a pair of sunglasses, or all over, Katy never strays from making a statement, and that’s just what we love about these brights! You can’t go wrong with a little confidence, so throwing on a traffic cone orange bracelet is one way to scream “look at me” without having to be too dramatic.
So what’s a girl to do if she wants to show off a little luminescence without Nicki Minaj in a bright pink wig? Surprisingly, it’s easy! On a cloudy day, a neon yellow t shirt with a cardigan, skinny jeans and a pair of boots is the perfect way to make the sun come out, at least for a little bit! This shirt, from Forever 21, makes every day neon a necessity!
And because we’re always thinking about a girl on the go, we have something for the trendy jet setter. If you’re heading off for a flight, maybe you can try throwing on this slouchy tee and a pair of leggings. Pair it with some over the knee boots and you’re beyond chic while staying completely comfortable. I’d call that a win-win situation.
When the week is over, and you’re ready to unleash your inner animal (there I go with Ke$ha, again!), there are neon looks that work for any night out. Pair this romper with wedges and hit the town for dancing with your girls.
Or, for a look that doesn’t quit, throw on this cute cut-out-dress that shows off your enviable curves. It especially pops against darker skin tones like mine, so I’m all about it for the transition from warm into cold weather!
So ladies, remember this- Katy Perry reminds us that we’re even brighter than the moon. Throw on some neon and light up the sky, just like the fourth of July!
