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!
