Trend alert: neon is back in style and it’s hotter than ever. Highlighter hues might have taken the backseat to minimalist shades in recent years, but this season, things are going high-voltage. This year, step out of your neutral comfort zone and into some neon pieces, whether it’s a top, a killer pair of shoes or a playful accessory. Read on to see the neon pieces you need in your wardrobe ASAP.
Okay, we seriously can’t get enough of this colour. If a chunky, bold knit seems a bit too intimidating, pair it down with neutral accessories and shoes.
Layer a neon turtleneck under a neutral-hued dress for a look that will feel on trend, without making you feel too bright.
Whether you’re in the mood for pants or a long skirt, a pair of neon bottoms with a simple black or white top will always look good.
Finally, if you’re not feeling bold enough to rock a neon fashion piece, you may want to try the trend as an accessory instead. This way you a can still incorporate into your look, without attracting too much attention to yourself.
