Three ways to wear neon, when you’re not a teenager
I loved all the neon prints and patterns that were around this summer (it’s a nod to my 90’s childhood, what can I say?). But when you’re very much no longer 16, smiley face t-shirts are not a good look. It’s easy to run screaming when faced with a wall of day-glo bondage dresses and crop tops in Topshop.
It’s a lot easier to stick to really simple neutrals with a slight flash of colour instead. So this is where my new bracelet from Merci Maman came in, which has been a perfect way to brighten up an outfit this summer (often worn one of the three ways as shown above).
Merci Maman translates as ‘thank you Mum’, and the items are designed to be a celebration of the bond between mother and child. How lovely is that? Offered a review one of the personalised neon charm bracelets, I went for the neon pink satin thread and sterling silver mini engraved disk (£20). Mine has Eliza’s initials on, but there’s room on the larger charms for words and short messages.
It’s a London-based French company that makes all the items by hand. And it’s such a brilliantly French brand – from the from the font of the etchings, to the packaging and the design. Any of the bracelets or necklaces would make a great present for a new mum (or your mum, for that matter). And what I love about mine is that it’s very current, but the charm is classic and could easily be restrung later on.
Thanks Merci Mamam for the review opportunity. Bracelet <3
