Neon Accents

As I’m certain I’ve mentioned before, colour is not my friend. I prefer to let the architecture of an outfit shine through, rather than a bold hue. This being said, regardless of the season, I am obsessed with small accents of neon shades.

The trend also works amazingly well with cosmetics, as adding a bright pop of colour on the lips, eyes, or nails can add a bold yet sophisticated edge when paired with a more demure outfit.

Lastly, I’ve recently become very attracted to art pieces and artists who feature neon elements in their work. Examples include Maya Hayuk, who turned Wayne Coyne’s OKC Art Gallery ‘The Womb’ into a psychedelic playhouse, Jennis Li Cheng Tien, who’s dreamy portraits never cease to amaze me, and Johnathan Monk, one of many artists to explore the use of neon light.
