Update from the blogosphere #85 – neon fashion
Bring on the hot weekend! After a super busy week here at BrandAlley HQ, we are so excited to relax in the sun. Of course weâ€™ll be wearing a flash of neon because if you hadnâ€™t already spotted, neon is a big trend right now. Even the athletes at the Olympics were rocking the look with their neon trainers!
Like magpies, sparkly things normally catch our eye. But when we saw this beautiful collage of all things neon on Blu Kat Kraftâ€™s blogspot, we were totally drawn in and our obsession with neon intensified. Check out Blu Kat Kraftâ€™s blog here to find out where you can get your hands on some of these amazing colour popping pieces. Our personal favourite is the Zero+Maria Cornejo Kou draped stretch-silk top. Matched with a subtle tan and neutral colours, this statement jacket is a definite wow piece.
Speaking of what to wear your neons with, Mae Galâ€™s blog has 3 fab outfits. Neons arenâ€™t the easiest colours to match, but if youâ€™re up for it, why not colour block? The Zero+Maria Cornejo Kou top we love (above) would look fantastic with pastel lemon jeans, but for a really clean and crisp look, try with whites, creams and even black. Take a look at the other outfits over on Maeâ€™s blog.
We couldnâ€™t do a blog about neons without giving credit to the guys who kept this trend at the forefront of our minds over the last two weeks, Nike. Disney Roller Girl has blogged about the sports brand and their takeover of the Olympics. Although Adidas were the official sponsors, we were all drawn to those striking colours that were winning golds! Check out Â Disney Roller Girlâ€™s blog for a round-up of a few of the best.
If youâ€™re like us and you love a bit of neon, why not mix too trends: sports luxe and neon? If it works for you, let us know as weâ€™d love to hear from you.
Have a great weekend â€“ Fridayâ€™s here!
