See and be seen this spring in one of the season’s hottest trends: neon. We’ve got the tips on how to wear these hot hues and which ones to choose.
When it comes to rocking those neon colors, you might be apprehensive about competing with the sun, but this trend is actually more wearable than you think. Thrust into the forefront by the SS 2017 runway shows, we saw the neon trend take precedence on the catwalk, but in a fresh way.
Color was built up through sheer layers, given a textural overhaul, or modernized through architectural lines, rather than going the way of ’90s MC Hammer pants and tie-dye t-shirts. Today, we have a grown-up, and sometimes glamorous neon pieces that can be worked into your current spring wardrobe. Whether you choose neon accessories, or a fluorescent head-to-toe look, confidence is all you really need to pull it off.
1. Sunshine Yellow Dress
With this sunny yellow dress, you’ll have work, date night, Sunday brunch, and wedding and baby showers on lock. With the help of a tailored jacket or cardigan and the proper accessories, you can wear this piece morning, noon, and night. Take a cue from the model and incorporate more bold colors, like she did with her orange shoes, or simply pair this pretty dress with neutrals. Priced at $138.
2. Fluorescent Orange Set
Such a unique and versatile set, this fluorescent orange top and bottom will change the way you look at neon. Perfect for travel days, vacations, as a beach coverup, or something to wear while lounging, you’ll look effortlessly stylish no matter what you’re up to. These pieces can be worn together or apart, and can be dressed up or down. Pair the set with heels and jewelry, or with espadrilles and your bikini. Priced at $98.
3. Electric Purple Mule
These neon shoes are so much fun that they had to make the list! Electric purple (or fuchsia, if you will) and perfect for spring, you’ll want to wear these mules again and again. Pair the slides with an all-white outfit for a modern take that packs a colorful punch, or wear them with a pair of cuffed straight leg jeans. These are even appropriate for work and can quickly brighten a dull day. Priced at $45.
