The Need For Neon June 23 2015

As the sun has finally come out play, nothing says summer fashion like neon colour ways.

This Spring/Summer collection at the boutique includes some fabulous designer dresses in neon as well as some casual looks for the more laid back days out.

If your not relying on Irish weather and going abroad then neon looks amazing on tanned skin. A neon top with skinny cropped jeans is perfect for that casual night out when on hols.

But of course we Irish are great at dealing with our weather and have learned to cheat by using spray tan. While neon can be tricky to pull off on pale skin,  my advice is stick to colours which suit your completion and just opt for them in a neon tonal palette. 

Here are a few of our Summer Brights from Picket Fence.

Michael Kors, Christian Dior and J.W. Anderson, to name just a few top end designers, S/S 2014 collection emerged with a fabulously bright colour trend of that of the ‘Yellow’ colour palette. Yellow is the new pink this season and plays a dominant role over many genres within the fashion lines due to its vibrant, stimulating qualities. This season’s go to shade comes in a variety of different tones which is of benefit to us Irish as we sport many different complexions. The intensity of the shade you choose depends on your skin tone and most importantly the love of the colour. Here are my tonal tips when choosing the correct shade to suit your complexion.

For those who are pale with the Irish freckle breaking through who have warm tones in your hair I would advise a warmer shade of yellow such as ‘Daffodil’.

For the ladies with darker hair tones and jewel like eyes you need an intense shade of yellow, so I would look towards ‘Primrose’ Shades.

Those who have blonde to grey tones in their hair and are either fair or tanned skin I would opt for a cooler yellow palette such as a ‘Lemon Yellow’

As it’s one of the key colour trends this season my advice is try it on as I can guarantee there is a shade of yellow for every complexion.
