Neon colours are back!

This winter fluoresent colours are back on the slopes! Not since the early eighties have we seen these neon colours in fashion. 
Back then not only clothes (especially oversized sweatshirts), but also accessories were neon pink, neon green, neon yellow.... ouch....
it hurt your eyes!

The revival of neon colours follows the return of stretch dressing (think leggings), sportswear, big shoulders and big hair. This time around though it's more subtle. Neon is combined with neutral colours like black or white, instead of brights and prints.

It might take some time to get used to.... but once you do, strut your stuff skiing or après-skiing.... and you will attract a lot of attention!

  1. Even though I don't ski I really love those bright colours, especially that pink helmet. I bet you already made your preparations for that ski-trip!
