Flashy Style Trends: Neon Vs Animal Prints

Author:fashion Posted:2013-9-25 19:35 Wednesday Categories:Other Brands

Neon and animal prints are two huge trends that have been occupying my attention all week. Marc Jacobs, LV, Balenciaga, Jimmy Choo, YSL, D&G…you name it. They`re all doing neon and leopard – sometimes both on the same bag! Both are bold, bright, and seem wrong in that conservative dressing part of your brain. Don`t fear the risks! Here`s how to indulge the trend without losing sight of your own personal style.

Indulge, But Don`t Overdo It

The neon and animal print trends for this year (reoccurring and morphing since the start of this 80`s revival in 2009) are bigger than just handbags. They`ve spilled over into all accessories and clothes. So, step one is choose your weapon! Just as you should calm a neon skirt or pant with a neutral shirt, if you`re going to go with a neon bag, let it be the color focus. Do not overdo it. The same goes for animal prints. The best advice for both is to start small. So like, start with a single electric pink purse and work your way up to the beaming disco princess outfit of your fantasies.

Replica Handbags – Go Neon Over Animal Print

I buy almost exclusively replica handbags, as you may know. I swear by them. One thing I`ve found is an unfortunate low quality in animal print styles in general when it comes to replica. Avoid them. If it`s meant to be real animal fur or leopard skin it never is, and even synthetic designs come out poorly in replica. My advice is go with neon! Personally, I way prefer this trend anyway. Not only is it more interesting, fun, and original, it`s also been done way better by the big designers, and, you can skip the weird feeling of wearing an endangered leopard`s fur. Neon is the hotter trend for the coming spring.

My Favorite Neon Styles

I think Marc Jacobs is ultimately the man behind this neon rebirth, so I tend to prefer his styles both his own (like the amazing Lovebird Tote below), and the Louis Vuitton. I`ve always loved the LV graffiti from 2009 that Jacobs did with Stephen Sprouse. If you thought it was going out of style, think again! Jimmy Choo has mastered the neon revival, and even coupled it with a leopard print – gorgeous! Finally, I love the pinks and lime greens that Balenciaga has been working into leather bags lately.
