Lately I’ve been craving all kinds of brights and neons to add some much needed spring/summer joy to my wardrobe. Neon was all over the spring/summer ’12 catwalks with designers like Christopher Kane sending shocking pinks and yellows down the runway and it’s a great transitional trend. But, with weather as unpredictable as it’s been here lately in the UK it’s not quite vest season yet and a jumper is still a necessity, so this neon open weave jumper is a great pullover and compromise for the days when the sun really doesn’t feel like playing fair.
This bright jumper was a steal at only £12.99 from TK Maxx and comes in a variety of colours if yellow’s not your thing. I love how easy this works with existing brights you might already have in your wardrobe and the slouchy oversized style means it’s perfect for casual days when you don’t want to think too hard about an ensemble.
After one of my favourite blogs Bicyclette tweeted this instagram pic last month of a neon jumper teamed with bright pink nails I’ve been dying to try out the trend myself, and now I can. I love the mix of neon shades together, I think it packs serious punch and just like a good print can lift an otherwise dull outfit.
I’ll be teaming my jumper with this statement necklace from Primark to give it a modern edge and also my favourite bright turquoise watch from ASOS. My nail polish obsession of the moment and one of my all-time favourite neons, Orly’s Oh Cabana Boy, is perfect for teaming with this jumper to get that much coveted ‘Bicyclette’ look. This is the sort of knit that I’ll be throwing over skinny jeans day after day and pairing with some Zooey Deschanel style bright flats for ultimate comfort. Warm and on-trend, what more could you want?
