Men Trends: Neon Lights

This week’s trend is Neon Lights. This translates into big and bold colors all over the place.

The designer inspiration comes from Jil Sander‘s Spring/Summer 2011 men collection which features bright neons on everything from sweaters,  to trousers, and outerwear.

For your tops look no further than a PS by Paul Smith crew neck. If you need a lower price point than an bright green H&M button down shirt will do the trick.

Since you can’t walk out pants less this spring it’s only right that you go bright on your bottom. You can get some great trousers and shorts from Diesel. If you’re going to take a dip in the water or just want to look good on the beach or poolside an Orlebar Brown swimsuit will help you out.

The biggest way to transform style is through accessories. This being said you can brighten up a rather dark outfit with the following accouterments.  You can throw own a classic pair of Ray-Bans with a pop or even a Nixon watch. To top everything off you can splurge on a pair of Prada Creepers.
