Wish list Neon vs. Pastel SS14

Shocking neon sports luxe and pretty pastel candy candy colours are some of the big trends of SS14. I love both although sway towards pastels as they can be a bit easier to coordinate. I am in love with the Jessica Simpson Ditsy Print Neon Hem Dress that combines my love of monochrome, floral print, dip dye clothing and neon! Neon is great for adding a splash of colour to a boring outfit or helping to stand out from the crowd on a night out. Be daring and team up with the spring beauty look using Illamasqua Lipstick Liable & Nail Varnish Gamma Duo for orange red lips and tips!

Pastels can be a far safer way to go and offer a softer, girly and feminine look. As much as I like my pastel t0nes I usually only wear one pastel piece in an outfit, it can look a little twee if done over the top! Pastel polishes are very easy to get hold of this spring and are an easy way to bring candy colours to your wardrobe! I love the River Island Pink Geometric Print Tote Bag, it gives a funkier edge to the usual pastel pieces.

    I prefer pastels for fashion cause its super pretty and girly plus really easy to style while still looking simple, elegant, and that you put effort in your appearance but not too much. But I do like neon on the nails for a little pop of color!

    I like the idea of a statement piece that is neon, but never go for it – pastel is so much safer. Love the Organza Insert Midi Skirt!

    I saw a really pretty soft pink jacket at Zara, I want it so bad! So yeah pastel all the way for me

  9. 2014/03/23 / 21:07

    As much as i love neon it’s to strong for me so I stick to pastels.

    Ohh great post. I’m in the process of working out how to best clash my neon’s and pastels together. Girlie and dayglow I love it :)

    That pastel bag is fantastic! Though, to copy everyone else, I think I’m on both teams too!

  13. 2014/03/23 / 22:46

    So torn between these two trends…I personally love using a neon accessory as a statement piece, but pastel is so chic as well!

    I prefer neon over pastel as I find pastel to be a little too girly and far too obvious for Spring for my liking. I am a little bit wary around neon though as I don’t want to end up looking like a really bad 80s raver wannabe.

    I’m a pastel girl! My coloring just doesn’t like the neon very much

  16. 2014/03/24 / 00:10

    I can’t handle how much I love that Jessica Simpson dress! I’m usually more of a pastel girl, but lately I’ve just been loving neons.

    Definitely like both neons and pastels! When I was younger, I liked neons a lot more, but as I’ve gotten older, I like the subtlety pastels have to them – I think maybe I’d say pastels for Spring and neons for summer if I had to pick ;) BOTH though are so pretty & I’d pretty much wear them both year round haha!

    Hi Mary, thanks so much for following my blog! I’ve always been a pastel girl but lately I’ve been pushing myself to incorporate neons, they’re so much more fun! Have a good one.

  19. 2014/03/24 / 09:04

    Both great looks. I love the Jessica Simpson dress

    Hmm I would have said neon but actually I like the pastel collection more – I am dying for the Ciate Dolls House set but am on a nail polish buying ban right now, boooo!

    Loving the pastel shoes in patent leather… makes them brighter and more fun without going all the way to neon. Not that neon is bad, I’m actually kind of an addict… :)

    Team Pastel. Tbh I never liked neon colours. I once had a slouchy top in bright neon pink and I never wore it. Well, once. But.. I just didn’t seem to like it but bought it in order to have at least one neon piece..
