As cooler weather approaches, most of us have dreams of chocolate brown blazers, black suits, and beige colored scarves. During the 2009 Fall Fashion Week, the typical fall colors were changed as Marc Jacobs made sure to have every lady dreaming of bright, 80’s, neon pink by the end of the week. Marc dressed his models in loud pink from head to toe, while pairing simple neon pink accessories to other looks for fresh, bright fall looks.
Thinking about trying this look? Neon pink is nothing to be scared of. Girls are meant to wear, live, and love pink. Luckily, this color can be found just about anywhere this season, for an affordable price. Many common stores have a large selection of Neon colored items for a price that won’t break your wallet. Try Targets GO International Cowl Neck Short Sleeve Sweater in Pink for under $25. Pair this adorable sweater with skinny jeans and black pumps, and you will be ready to go for a casual night out. Need something a little more dressy and daring? Target also has a strapless pink Bubble Dress for under $30. For a perfect night out or special occasion, try on this dress for the fall.
Girls Beware: This loud and bright shade is not for everyone. If you are feeling intimidated by this style, this is normal. This isn’t the first color women pull out of their closet to wear daily, let alone even own.
Ease your way into this trend with small touches of pink, just like Marc Jacobs did on his catwalk. Try a bright pink scarf with a black or white knit top. Wal-Mart sells scarves in every color, including neon pink, for $5. You can try accessorizing with earrings, bangles, and headbands for that perfect touch of bold. In expensive accessories will help you bring this look to many outfits while saving you money. Wet Seal can help satisfy your neon crave with their many choices of bold pink accessories. However, be sure not to over indulge in neon accessories. Keep them light and simple. Too many will seem overbearing.
Shoes are another way to embrace this style. While shopping for shoes in this color, you will not need to splurge on an expensive pair. Shoes in neon are not ones you will be pulling out of the closet every season. Try a pair of stilettos from Wet Seal or Charlotte Russe. Both stores carry these shoes for under $30. Throw these hot heels on with black leggings, skinny jeans, or a dark denim men’s trouser for a fun flirty look.
Reader Warning: Neon pink eye shadow is not a good idea to throw into this look. Eighties prom queen is not what you want to achieve. Instead, try makeup with neutral grey tones during the day and darker charcoal colors for the evening. Keep your lips glossy, and avoid any bright colors that may take away from your attire. For the cheeks apply a pale pink blush like NYX $5 powder blush in “Pinky.”
Remember that this is a style that is meant to be playful, fun and sexy. It can show others you have a sense of style without even bringing out the credit cards. Wear pink, hot like it is, and show some sass as you dazzle everyone with your inexpensive runway looks.
