The brightest trend of the year is the NEON trend, or as we call it "The Times Square" trend. We saw it on the runways for spring and summer, and now we see it in all the stores. From cosmetics to apparel, this trend is here to stay.

Tips on how to wear the Times Square Trend:
The other day I saw a lady walking in the street, in Manhattan. She was wearing a bright red long sleeve t-shirt, a neon pink puffer vest, a neon yellow skirt, and bright pistachio green shoes. :-@
She almost blinded me with her outfit!
The one thing you do not want to do is mix neons. You might have seen it on the runways, but this application does not work on everyone. Unless you want to be a walking hazard ready to color blind those who see you, do not mix neon colors!
Only apply one neon color at a time. This way you will keep it simple and the color you add will pop out more. Young girls who dare to take the extra mile can wear neon jeans or a neon colored top. Older ladies will be safer to add a bracelet, a purse or a watch to brighten up their outfit.
Enjoy this fun trend, and remember, Times Square is all about the neons. :-)
