The neon trend always finds itself at the forefront of the new year — returning as bold as ever, tempting you to inject fluorescent colours into your wardrobe. It’s time to upstage the lollipop man and show him how to make fluorescent fashionable.
Are you bold enough to wear high-vis? If so, here are three ways to wear neon.
1. A HINT OF FLUORO
Downplay the boldness of neon by relegating it to a shoe or accessory. This shows that you are ready to commit to the trend in a subtle way. Opt for a shoe, a beanie or a bag, whichever works with your outfit.
With the bum bag still trending, how about going for a neon version?
2. NEON LAYERING
Another way to style neon is through the art of layering. Neon is visible but slightly concealed behind another layer. This way, the bright colour is sandwiched between contrast shades to create an eye-catching distinction of colour.
A hoodie instantly comes to mind, with this look, but any top will work.
Give neon more prominence by layering it over a top.
3. BALANCING NEON
For this look, neon is offset by a dark colour such as khaki or black.Try wearing a neon top (roll neck), tucked into black trousers.
or a simple t-shirt
4. FULL FLUORESCENT
This look is unapologetically bright, curated to feature neon at the centre of your look. Think fluorescent outerwear,
or wearing double neon. The only rule is that you stand out!
