How to: nude and neon

How to do nude and neon
Natalie Hartley (Senior Fashion Editor at In Style), Kate Bosworth, Carolina Engman (Fashion Squad), Andy (Style Scrapbook) and Dree Hemingway all know how to mix neon and nude. I think it works much better placing fluorescent colours on a demure background, much better than black, which with bright yellow risks making you like like a bumble bee...

My particular favourites are ice cool blue on a beige trench as seen at Burberry SS11. The easiest way to do the neon trend is by incorporating bright accessories in an otherwise subdued outfit for a shot of colour. But for those daring enough a neon trouser is a great alternative paired with a pale, flesh tone top.
