How to Wear Neon Colors


This summer, go bright or go home. This season is all about neon! It’s not for the faint of heart but it sure is fun. Indulge in 80s vibes and brighten up your life with fluorescent pink, purple, blue, green, yellow, and orange. Not sure how to style it though? No worries, we’re here to help!

With denim

Throw on a neon top - sweater, crop top, bodysuit - and balance the brightness with your favorite piece of denim. Depending on the weather, it could be jeans, shorts, or a skirt. You could even create a Canadian tuxedo by adding a denim jacket. Play around with the combinations until you find one that feels right.

With neutrals

Tone down your neon piece by styling the rest of your outfit with neutral pieces (beige, grey, white, black). For example, a neon top, grey trousers and a classic beige trench coat. Or a neon skirt with a neutral sweater or t-shirt and matching shoes (black, white, or grey).

With checks

Add some sophistication and contrast to your neon look with checks. Pair your neon top with checked trousers or a skirt - style with boots or loafers to dress the look up even more or dress it down with sneakers. Or layer a check blazer over a neon top and jeans/neon dress.

As accessories

If you just want a pop of color, accessories are the way to go. It could be a neon bag (or belt bag), shoes, jewelry, sunglasses, or even hair accessories. Keep the rest of your outfit neutral so the neon accessory can create maximum impact.

Suit up

Really make heads turn with a neon suit. Break up the color by styling it with a white tee. If you want a more casual feel, wear sneakers. If you want a more elegant feel, wear black ankle boots.

At the beach

Where’s a better place to be bright than the beach? Outshine the sun itself in a neon bikini or one-piece.

All over

If you’re really feeling this trend, embrace it from head to toe. You could find a two piece set (top and skirt/top and pants), a dress, or a jumpsuit. If you want to go all out, make your accessories neon too! You definitely won’t be one to miss.

Mix & match

You could stick to a monochrome color palette, or you can mix & match your neons! Some great color combos to try are:

  • Yellow and green
  • Orange and pink
  • Green and pink
  • Purple and yellow
  • Blue and pink
  • Blue and yellow
  • Green and purple
  • Yellow and pink

But most importantly … own it and have fun! People will stare so make it worthwhile.
