Neon Comeback?

I took a stroll through The Gateway today at lunch. I paused at one point to take a second look at a rack of clothes. Was that neon pink I just saw? It was, much to my alarm and dismay.

When I think of neon colors, I'm reminded of a guy from my highschool who regularly wore neon colored turtlenecks (highschool friends or lurkers reading this will know exactly who I'm talking about). Bleh! I also can't help but remember my "cute" black button-up shirt (I must have been about 9 or 10) with neon pink sleeve cuffs and collar trim. I always wore that shirt with biker shorts, which no doubt had neon pink and green stripes on the sides. Not kidding.

I've periodically thought to myself that I hope to never live to see neon colors come back in style. I do have to confess that I had similar feelings toward skinny jeans and capri pants. Today, I'm not totally against capri pants although I don't wear them, or even try them on. I think they make my short legs look even shorter. And skinny jeans? LOVE THEM!

So, is neon making a comeback? OMG please no!

I WILL NOT wear it, no matter how cool people try to make me think it is! Just sayin.

Are you kidding? I wish the 80's would make a comeback...I am dying to wear my hair in a side ponytail with 5 different colored scrunchies!

But Bonny, we rock the 80s look.
Remember Footloose?

Yeah, not so sure about neon. I completely agree about capri's.
They are really not flattering on me either. Wish I could do skinny jeans but I'm just not brave enough.
