How To Wear The Neon Trend


Oscar de la Renta, Spring/Summer 2014,


Go bright or go home! This summer, neon has taken over the runway with bright and bold highlighters that we think is totally fresh and stylish. Rocking this bright hue is all about confidence and not being afraid to stand out, so if you’re looking for a little excitement this summer, try switching up your wardrobe and adding a splash of neon to really brighten up your outfits! Here’s a few tips to get your started on how to wear this neon trend.


1. Pair With Neutrals

If you’re just starting out, pairing your bright neon with neutrals is the easiest way to go. It’s simple, whether you’re sporting a neon jacket, top or skirt, just pair it with neutrals like black or white to create a clean and sophisticated look that’s bold, but still minimal.


2. Just A Hint

Another great way to wear neon is to accessorize it. Who says you have to wear a full neon ensemble to make a statement? If you’re a little more conservative and not as comfortable wearing full neon clothing, you can always wear neon accessorizes to add a hint of this bright hue to your outfit. Mini bags, chunky necklaces, earrings and even painted nails are great ways to incorporate neon into your life.


3. Colourblock

The next step above wearing neon is mixing neon colours and the way to go about this is to colour block. Maybe it’s pairing a pretty blue jacket with a pink skirt or or a blue top with an orange purse. Whatever colours you choose, the key is to keep it solid. Make sure the colours compliment each other and are at the same intensity.


4. Graphic Neon

The ultimate neon-wearer is one who mixes this bright colour with a graphic print. That’s right, for those super confident and edgy ladies, this combination is for neon pros who know exactly how to wear this tricky colour. To wear this ensemble, keep the neon solid and print bold, but not overbearing. Most importantly, it’s all about working that confidence of yours!
