Neons? The brighter the better!

In the 80s, neon fashion was all the rage. From blinding highlighter yellows to vivid fluorescent greens, the only rule for the neon trend was “the brighter the better!” Now that this bold style is making a fierce comeback, stay fashion-forward and avoid looking too flamboyant by following these few tips:


  • Start off small

For those new to the neon trend, ease into it by going for small, bright accessories:

  • Eye-catching pink belt
  • Electric blue purse
  • A couple of brilliantly colored bangles


  • Throw in some layers

To avoid looking tacky in an all-neon outfit try subtle pops of color with layers:

  • Bright yellow tank top under a beige blazer
  • Fluorescent pink jacket over a simple black dress


  • Pair with neutrals

Neons and neutrals work perfectly together, so to avoid going overboard, pair neon with these colors:

  • Gray
  • Khaki
  • Black
  • Beige


  • Color-blocking

For those daring enough to take on the full-throttle neon look, color-blocking is the way to go. Try one of these combinations:

  • Cobalt Blue, Yellow, Orange
  • Chocolate Brown, Pink, Peach
  • Purple, Bright Blue, Teal
  • Deep blue, bright pink, White
  • Coral, Grey, Ivory
