The Neon trend is going to be everywhere this season, as pops of citrus infiltrate the minimalist wardrobes of the fashion industries best-dressed. Getting the neon trend right is challenging but when done right, this can instantly overhaul an entire look.
Keep It Simple - When dressing in neon, look for simple shapes with the color doing all of the talking. A spaghetti strap shift dress or midi & crop co-ord are perfect choices. Avoid anything too fussy, overly designed or loose fighting. Clean and sharp are the way to go.
Pair With Blush Tones - Ensure the neon is balanced out by muted tones of blush and nude. Try a neon romper under a blush trench or a nude pump to elongate and elevate a neon dress. The same rule applies to makeup, keep the tones light and natural to avoid clashing with the neon shades.
Add a Splash – Afraid to go all out neon? Just try adding a splash in the form of a pair of sunglasses or a clutch bag. These pops of color will freshen up an outfit without overwhelming. Often less is more when it comes to trends especially a trend as bold as neon.
Go 80’s – with sportswear having a big moment right now, neon works perfectly mixed into an 90’s workout-meets-street style. Try some retro sneakers with white track pants and a neon crop for a dramatic and fashion forward take on the trend. Don’t forget this look takes confidence and needs to be highly stylized to look fashionable rather than accidental – a tight, high pony tail and winged liner will help to create an “on purpose” look to what could otherwise look mismatched.
