Fluo trend: how to combine fluorescent colors (also) in autumn and winter
The fluorescent trend is one of the most entertaining for the fall- winter 2019 : if you’ve always thought that the shimmering colors in the cold seasons could only be worn in the gym, maybe declined on athletic garments and technical fabrics, you’ll have to change your mind, because the highlighter look it’s perfect for reviving our winter outfits.
The trend was launched by Miuccia Prada, who in Prada’s A / W 2018/2019 collection paraded dresses in impalpable tulle in shock colors, and fluo accessories combined with wrap-around duvets and checkered overcoats.
A few months later, as always, the fluo trend has moved on the streets and in low cost stores: how do these colors match in winter, when the tanning is a distant memory and the color palette is rather dull and monotonous?
The answer is right in the monotone color palette, to be illuminated with touches of fuchsia, yellow, green and orange, daring like never before with unusual and fun combinations.
Fluo trend – How to wear it?
To inspire this article were my Valentino shoes with camouflage print and fluorescent fuchsia details: combining them with a pair of military green trousers seemed to me the best choice to enhance their colors, but I did not imagine that the result could like me so much!
The military green is a shade that saves on many occasions, it is a neutral that combines with great naturalness to all the shock colors, but also to softer colors such as powder pink and sky blue. It’s as practical as black, but it’s not as boring as black!
To take up the fluo detail of my decollete I wore a sweater of the same color, but I will replicate the outfit by changing top depending on the temperature and use occasion.
If you prefer more comfortable shapes in the upper part of the body, and more clothes on the legs, you can create a look similar to mine starting from the big sweaters Zara fuchsia fluo or acid green: they have a very large oversize fit, but for those who know how to wear them are really beautiful and very hot.
But I recommend, for the pants tip on something tight skinny cut, so the proportions will be saved.
If you do not love military green, you can combine fluorescent colors also in dark blue, black, gray and brown: use the shock colors to rejuvenate vintage garments, or to make feminine pieces with a masculine cut, and you’ll be perfect for all ‘winter!
And if you like the fluo trend, the idea of combing bright colors to your pale face scares you, opts for the details: just a belt, or a pair of shoes, but also a simple pair of socks sprouting from the hem trousers (you can find them at OVS), all accessories able to create a break in your outfit, making you trendy and jaunty.
