How to Style Neon Shades
By Barbara Ross

TP 201912 fashion 01The last few fashion seasons have been loving electrifying loud in-your-face colours whether you like it or not. And from the looks of it, trend setters are not slowing down. Fashion designers and even street fashion retailers have been including unconventionally bright colours in their collections even for the Fall/Winter seasons in 2019. Celebrities on the other hand can鈥檛 seem to get enough of these colours, with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid and many more sporting neon shades in stylish silhouettes.


They also have interesting names for these super bright neon colours; millennial pink, Gen Z yellow, ring any bells anyone?


Nonetheless, you have to admit, neon shades do add a fair share of brightness and cheerfulness to our wardrobe. But it may not necessarily be as easy to style them, as the celebs make it seem. You can鈥檛 say a neon green suit set doesn鈥檛 scare you.


So, here鈥檚 a quick guide on how you can style these gorgeous neon shades and don鈥檛 end up looking like a joker in black light.

Choose the right colour tone


TP 201912 FASHION 02This may seem a little disappointing, but it is always the best to experiment with a neon shade that suits your natural skin tone.


Yes, even though we鈥檙e not talking about a foundation shade or a concealer shade, your skin tone, more specifically your undertone, does influence the way you can pull off a colour. For example, if you鈥檙e of a paler complexion, then cooler tone shades like neon blue and pink will be the best for you. On the other hand, if you have a tanner skin tone, more on the yellow side, then you can go for orange or yellow shades.


The bottom line is that not every neon shade that鈥檚 trending may be right for you.




Pair it with denims


TP 201912 FASHION 07We all know that denims are the safest bet when it comes to casual clothing. In fact, if you鈥檙e planning to wear anything off beat in terms of top wear or accessories or anything, pairing them with a simple pair of clean look denim jeans would be the way to go. In the same way, if you鈥檙e looking to wear a neon green crop top for example, pair it with denim jeans or a cute denim blue skirt. You can never go wrong with it.




Pair it with neutrals


TP 201912 FASHION 05Neutrals are the best way to tone down the intensity of a colour or a print. Hence, pairing a neon coloured outfit with a neutral coloured outfit would be another safe way to break into the neon trend. For example, a neon blue blouse can be worn with a pair of white flared pants to tone it down. Or you could even go for a pair of neon green cycle shorts paired with a white sweatshirt.




Pair it with checks


TP 201912 FASHION 09Agreed, checks are a little on the louder side by themselves. But black and white checks, being neutrals can help balance the loudness of a neon shade. Hence, you can pair say, a neon pink crop top with a pair of checkered trousers for a more put together look. Similarly, you can also layer up a neon sweater with a checkered blazer for a stylish 鈥渙ut and about鈥 celebrity inspired look.

TP 201912 FASHION 06For those of you who are too scared to break into the trend with an entire outfit, you can start off small with accessories. They are the perfect way to bring a pop of colour and brighten up your entire look. For example, once again inspired by celebrity looks, you can go for neon pink drop earrings and a matching clutch to accessorize an all-black look for the night. Similarly, for a day time look, try wearing a neon green tote bag along with matching heels for an all-white look.

TP 201912 FASHION 03Apart from these style tricks, if you鈥檙e up for it, you could even go for a head-to-toe neon look, with a neon suit for example. And to tone down the loudness of the three pieces, you can go for a neutral inner button down.


As you can see, the idea is to balance out the loudness of the colour with less loud pieces. Keep this rule of thumb in mind when you鈥檙e styling a neon look.
