This inspired us to create a new series—Trust Me, I’m an Editor—that allows you, the reader, to get in on the action. What sartorial dilemmas are you facing right now? What problem can we apply our extensive shopping knowledge to? You can shoot us questions via Instagram or our Facebook shopping group, So… Should I Buy This?Use us—you know you want to.
When we first compiled our spring/ summer 2019 trend report, there was one I was certain our readers wouldn’t go near — neon. But it turns out this isn’t a trend that is staying within the Kardashian-Jenner family — as the most-asked question in our Instagram inbox this month is ‘how can I wear neon?’ If you’re Kylie Jenner, you’d wear as much as possible — her family has worn matching acid green swimsuits and she’s worn a traffic cone-orange dress, shoes and bag all at the same time. However it is possible to have a more subtle approach to neon, with a tiny flash of fluoro so you don’t look like a human glow stick.
