In case you didn’t get the memo, neon is brightening up every fashionista's wardrobe this season. Things are finally heating up for summer and what better way to celebrate than to compete with the sun for whomever has the highest wattage?
As intimidating as these florescent hues can be, think of us as your fearless leaders, guiding you in the bright direction (you can thank us later!).
Still not convinced? Tackle the neon trend one detail at a time by adding some eye-popping accessories to your everyday ensemble. This is the easiest way to incorporate neon into your wardrobe.
You can also dip your toes into the trend by putting your best (and brightest) foot forward in some killer neon kicks. Peter Lang has mastered the essential accessories.
Teaming a statement neon piece with nude is the perfect way to make the luminous hue really pop. Not only are neon and neutrals a perfect match, but also your next step on the neon brick road if you’re ready to move beyond neon accessories.
Creating contrast between colours is a daring look that’s guaranteed to get you noticed! (you’re welcome!). Bianca Spender and Camilla and Marc have got you covered for this style.
Black and neon are opposites in the colour world, but they work so well when paired together. Wearing bright neon with sleek, black clothing not only creates fantastic contrast but is super chic. Magdalena Velevska can help you out with this one!
Colour- blocking neon is an easy way to earn points for sporting two trends at once. However it’s important to stick with clean, crisp and structured pieces to avoid looking like an exploded highlighter. If you’re really brave, you can try head to toe neon. Collette by Collette Dinnigan and Heidi Merrick make this a cinch!
