There have been a lot of color palettes competing for the spotlight this year: from the hot pinks of spring to the sunset reds, yellows and oranges of recent weeks. Some people might already find working a bright, bold shade of stop-sign red into their outfits a challenge, but we want to know if anyone is brazen enough to try out Vetements’ latest suggestion: neon yellow.
Or maybe lime green… or fluorescent greeny-yellow. The fact is, no matter how good your eyesight is, this color requires sunglasses to look at and its exact qualities are hard to pin down. One thing we know for certain though is that tennis ball color accents are about to take off in a big way.
While the “models” (read: some of Zurich’s passers-by) from Vetements’ Menswear SS18 "show" rocked a variety of pieces in blinding neon, including Umbro-branded sweaters and frill-hem skirts, it was the smaller accessories that appealed to us. As with any tricky trend, we like to learn to walk before we can run, so we’ve compiled a selection of easy-to-try accessories that you can work into your closet slowly, so you’ve mastered the look before it goes global.
