Countdown to Spring: Color: Rule of 20 (years)

This week we are talking about Spring 2012 color trends.  Monday I touched on the Pantone color of the year (check it out here).  Today is Neon!  Remember, from the early 90's (see 1st pic. below).

Yep, those bright colors that almost glow in the dark.  You have heard the theory that trends come back around every 20 years right?  If not, it really is something to think about. For me, this is one trend that has been a little hard to embrace since I was just starting to get into fashion and high school when this first came about. When I see a neon yellow headband or fluorescent pink pair of skinny jeans, those preteen memories come a rushin' back.  On the other hand, I swore I would never wear skinny jeans again and... I have 3 pair.  If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Here are some of my favorite modern images showing this trend.

Is this a little nostalgic for you?   Will you embrace this bright and bold trend this year?
