Find Out How to Wear Bold Neon Colors This Season
We love the way Adrienne Bailon worked neon hues on the red carpet, but if you’re looking for something a little more subtle, we’ve got you covered. One of the easiest ways to wear neon is by tying it into another one of this season’s style trends: color blocking. Start with a piece of clothing in a neutral color and then add a pop of color. Try pairing basic black or white pants with a bright-orange blazer, a breezy, hot-pink camisole, or a brilliant-blue tunic. This is a great look for a day out and about, or a casual, weekend get-together. Another option is to go bold with your bottoms. Colored denim is everywhere right now; find a pair of neon pants and wear them with a neutral top for a look that is totally on-trend.
If you want to ease your way into wearing neon shades, try adding a bright accessory or two to your ensemble. A cute clutch in a vibrant yellow or pretty teal can add flair to any outfit. The same can be said for layered neon bangles, or even a statement pendant. You can also opt for a pair of neon heels, which are the perfect accent to a workday look—they’re stylish and office appropriate.
Want an unforgettable face? Add some neon to your makeup! A pop of lime-green liner across the upper eyelid or a sheer, orange gloss on the lips are both great ways to go neon. It’s best to choose one feature to highlight and keep the rest of the face neutral. Of course, the sky is the limit when it comes to makeup, and your comfort level and skill set are the only things that can dictate just how neon you go.
