The Runway the College Way: Neon


One of the big trends on the Spring runways was neon, like this hot pink mini-dress from Emanuel Ungaro or this colorful ensemble from Dsquared. If you would feel a little awkward and completely inappropriate wearing these outfits to class on Monday morning, you’re not alone. The key to neon is moderation, you don’t want to be channeling the 80s too heavily. It was a good decade for sure, but sometimes you just have to let go.

If you just want to dip your toe into the neon pool, slip on a pair of these patent flats by BC for $38 from Urban Outfitters.

If you want to be a little more true to the trend, this Nylon Taffeta Wind Breaker from American Apparel is a pretty good match to the Dsquared jacket and a complete steal at only $42.

There’s nothing sweeter than a little pink neon and this A-Line Party Skirt from Forever 21 is only $19 and would be epic with a little cap-sleeved black tee or if this craptastic weather keeps up, a turtleneck of the same shade.

This Jersey Baby Doll, also from Forever 21, will only set you back $17 and would look great with your skinny dark denim and a couple of gold bangles.

If you’re just not a neon girl, at least slip into something a little more comfortable and brighter than your normal attire, like this little number from Victoria’s Secret (Infinity Edge extreme plunge push-up, about $45).
