I think pastel neon jeans in pinks, oranges, yellows and greens are going to be a huge hit for Spring/Summer 2012! I’ve been seeing a lot of the highlighter pen shades around in jewellery, accessories, shoes and some denim at the press days and it looks great! I know neon is hard to wear and some of you have found it hard to venture into the coloured denim trend which blew up this past Spring/Summer, but I think now we are all accustomed to the bright shades, it wont be so hard to jump on the neon bandwagon.
I think it was the next step in colour actually for denim. Every other colour has been done. From what I have seen though, none of the denim is as bright as the highlighter pens, so don’t worry, it’s more pastel shades and muted tones, but you can still tell it has a florescent inspiration. I know the high street labels like Topshop, Aldo, Miss Selfridge etc are doing neons but I can’t wait to see if premium brands like J Brand, Paige, Current/Elliott, Siwy, 7 For All Mankind and others bring out their take on the pastel neon trend for a few styles outside their Look Books! There are some styles which I think would be perfect for the colour palette!
