INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
HOW ASOS INSIDERS DO NEON
By Steven Potter, March 7, 2019
There’s no escaping it. Neon is back and brighter than ever. No longer just reserved for ravers and road workers alike, the in-your-face color scheme has featured in SS19 collections from Marni, Acne Studios and Louis Vuitton. With day-glo hues across clothing and accessories, we thought we’d take a look at how four of our very own ASOS Insiders are getting that glow...
ASOS_Ruddy, our resident skater-style enthusiast, has proved that a reserved use of neon can really pay off. Kicking things off with a double-denim co-ord, he’s made that ‘fit really pop with an emergency-orange fleece from The North Face and neon-green socks. Who would have thought that neon green would go so well with a pair of Timberland shoes in a classic sandy hue? The lesson: it’s more than acceptable to mix brights with more tonal shades.
With the '90s theme still going strong for SS19 take a page out of ASOS_Jono’s book and incorporate some neon into the ‘fit. With a neon-green long sleeve tee, Jono can afford to tone things down with some skater-style jeans and fresh white kicks. With his bleach-blond curtains and oval sunglasses giving us all the Kurt Cobain feels, it’s grunge — but make it neon.
Even streetwear isn’t exempt from the far-reaching influence of neon in the 2019 menswear fashionscape. ASOS_Luce, our streetwear connoisseur, has teamed a bright tee from cult skatewear brand, SWEET SKTBS with some adidas Yung 1s in an equally-as-bright colorway. Super fresh. With an adidas Originals puffer and plain chinos pulling the look together, he’s even found room to find a matching neon key ring. Accessorizing level: 1000.
Our Plus and Tall Insider Soouizz consistently shows that going bold is actually best when it comes to your look. Repping a half-and-half sorta vibe, Souuiz has kicked things off with a neon-green beanie and long-sleeve tee, complete with high-vis taping. Down below, those taped joggers keep the color scheme strong with some more matching Yung 1s tying the look together. With that reflective puffer jacket, complete with matching neon lining, there’s no missing this ‘fit. Bravo.
