Women rush to buy neon clothes after the Queen chooses bright outfits for her Birthday and Ascot
Quote:
he may be 90 years of age but Queen Elizabeth II has proved she is still a fashion icon as women across the country are scrambling to mimic her latest look.

According to retailers sales of neon items of ladies' wear have spiked in the days since Her Majesty sported a daring lime green outfit for her official birthday bash, followed by a vivid pink ensemble at Ascot.

Over the past week high street retailer JD Williams said it has sold 134pc more bright green pieces, with sales of one green dress in a similar shade to the Queen's birth day outfit, jumping seven fold. It is believed other shops have also seen sales increases.

Elizabeth's other bright costumes also appear to have sparked a desire to ditch dull and pastel shades among shoppers, as sales of bright pink garments have jumped 107pc with bright orange up by 69pc.

Thanks to The Queen neon sales have risen 137%. Here's how to wear it the grown-up way

ou might have thought that neon was a no-go area once your highlighter-hued festival crop top days were over. But it seems that The Queen has persuaded her loyal subjects otherwise. As The Telegraph reported yesterday, over the past week high street retailer JD Williams says it has sold 134% more bright green pieces, with sales of one green dress in a similar shade to the Queen's birthday outfit, jumping seven fold. It is believed other shops have also seen sales increases. It doesn't stop at blindingly bright lime either; sales of bright pink garments have jumped 107% while bright orange is up by 69%.

We visit here so rarely. QEII wore a peacock and dark teal metalic croco print dress to the Olympian/Paralympian fete at BP today.
This is a miss. The seaming alone makes my skin crawl. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2016/...6819171512.jpg
I love this lady and someone needs to atone for talking her into wearing this. The nicest thing I can say is that it really made her lovely white hair take center stage.

Edit - the athletes wore their navy blazers - which explains her choice of color family.

I have to agree with you. This is definitely a miss. It's too shiny and reminds me of a Halloween costume.

:) I like the colour, style and fabric of that peacock/metallic dress.
Something quite different from usual for her, and HM looks very good in it

I like her except the hat!

I love the bright colors that always the Queen choose!

I love the green on her beautiful shade.

But while I love real hats, not a fan of this one. Big flower is not doing it

It is incredible, the stamina of the Queen and the Duke. Both looked well-dressed, what else was to be expected anyway.

The royal couple both look fine and are doing so well for their ages. I love that shade of green on the Queen, and her hat looks nice and fresh with its large flower.

Although the queen looks good in this color, I don't like it much. Is it blue? Or green? That's a meh shade imo.

HM's outfit is simple but beautiful. The sequins/sparkles give it a nice touch.
