Summer Trend: How to Wear Neon

Bright, bold colors are a fashion trend that has been proven to be timeless. But this season, the popular neon trend is taking “bright” to the next level. Highlighter shades of yellow, orange, pink and more have been popping up in retail stores, fashion blogs and magazines since the spring. So how can you channel this bright trend into your daily wardrobe? Here are three neon outfit ideas for the summer season.

Full-On Neon:

If you’re feeling confident and adventurous, why not embrace it in neon statement piece? Try a neon dress, like this yellow lace number. Layer it with a neutral blazer that you can easily shed as the weather gets warmer. Since neon is such a bright trend, there is nothing wrong with balancing it out with softer colors. Add a pair of neutral wedges and a bright cuff or a necklace. To take it to the next level, try an equally bright nail polish color to complete your look.

Neon and Neutrals:

If head-to-toe neon isn’t your style, you can always try the trend in a more subtle way. Building an outfit around neutrals is a great way to sport a neon color. Try pairing a neon top with a basic, black skirt. The neutral colors will help the neon color stick out, but it won’t overwhelm you. Add a pair of nude ballet flats, simple accessories and a classic black bag.

Neon Accessories:

Another subtle way to test out the neon trend is by accessorizing. Pair a simple shirt, like this gray peplum top, with a pair of classic, black pants, then pile on the neon. A pair of bright heels or a bag is a great way to add a pop of color to a basic outfit. You could also try a neon statement necklace, earrings or bracelets to polish off the look. Neon tones can modernize an otherwise classic outfit.

Whether neon is topping your favorites list or you are just testing out the trend, neon is a great way to add some color to your summer wardrobe.
