What Do You Think? Are Neon Colors Coming or Going?

What the Fashion Shows Show: Next, we decided to take a glimpse into the future and got the scoop straight from the 2013 resort collections.

What the Fashion Shows Show


What did our eyes soak up as we checked out the latest from fashion mags like Vogue? Florals (get used to this one—it’s coming up everywhere), earth-toned vintage crepe dresses, geometric prints with some serious 3-D patterns and finally, a bit of masculine-femme leather coat/skirt combos. Overall, colors were hushed. As for neons?


*Crickets chirping*

What’s in Store? Well fashionistas, there were some brights, but neon? Barely any in sight. Target had some neon feathered earrings and some nuclear-orange coin purses that were severely discounted. J.C. Penney had one rack of pink and yellow neons, but limited only to the activewear section (tops only).

Case in point:
This bag is REALLY on SALE

Still, we were determined. So what if magazines and stores weren’t overflowing with neon? Sure, they weren’t a part of any 2013 fashion forecasts we’d seen either, but still, we weren’t about to give our neon quest a rest.

    I think that neon colors have their place in your wardrobe here and there is okay, but as for mass producing it for a season, I think it should stay out.

    I like a little dab of neon–I have sunglasses–but Tshirt-sized amounts are too much. Having said that, come to Arkansas, where neon is very much a going concern. (But Arkansans are generally several months to years behind most fashion trends *sigh*)

    A couple of days ago, I was in Meijer (a mass merchandiser in our area; think SuperTarget) and saw a couple of racks of neon and black clothes, mostly tank tops and a few miniskirts. I immediately thought, “WOW, THE 80s ARE BACK.” Apparently I missed the predictions. I’m not sure how I feel about it though.
