Pull a post-Paralympics Chris Martin – in rave-on neon

It’s over. I know. But you can let yourself get deeply down, wondering how such a sensational summer can ever be bettered – or you can just carry on celebrating for a bit. Be thankful for just how amazing it was and plan lots more amazing times for the weeks and months ahead.

I’ve got Coldplay on iTunes today, in the name of celebrating Chris Martin’s fluro trousers and mismatched trainer laces (his look appeals to me, with those mad graffiti hands and military jackets) – and in honour of my ultimate Olympic/Paralympic crush, Oscar Pistorius (Mike from Neighbours in his heyday – jus’ sayin’).

And as soon as the occasion arises (school run, 3:20pm?) I’ll be donning some neon a la Apple’s dad, because what better way to welcome the autumn than by blinding onlookers? I already own the ASOS Aztec jumper above (unless you do – it may have ended up in the last clothes swish) but here are some more of my fave rave looks, to be worn while singing Viva La Vida and making peace signs…
