OOTD - Nina

   In case you haven't been reading this blog, or if you're a new reader (hello, you!), you might not have been aware of my fleeting Summer romance with neon.

   It was around four or five years ago that an obsession with the rather dirty side of the eighties errupted, and neon diffused into high street collections rather ungracefully, via Zumba outfits and Rihanna's nails.

   Neon grew up this Summer, with designers, Thomas Tait, Louise Gray and Jasper Conran, among others, showing eye-opening brights against everything from graphic prints to soft neutrals. We learned that neon doesn't have to (read: must not) limit itself to leg warmers and Borat's mankini - it can, in fact, look fresh, classy and bring diversity to an outfit.

   Today I've plucked out my neon yellow and white trainers to mix with my casual outfit of jeans and an embellished tee. Originally, I was going to pair this t-shirt with a houndstooth jacket, black trousers and heels, but I set myself a challenge to dress it down.

   Tell me what you think! Are you a fan of neon?
