Neons are the new neutrals - the neon style guide

Over the last few months we’ve witnessed dopamine dressing, Y2K inspired fashion, and now, neon is making it’s way back into our wardrobe. You heard us right, neon. I know what you’re thinking, it’s pretty out there, but in all fairness adding some colour to your wardrobe allows for greater self expression.

The shade of neon that has become particularly popular amongst both the celeb and high fashion world is neon green. We’ve seen neon green sheer mesh shirts, dresses, and accessories walk down high fashion runways, and we stand.

From the dopamine dressing trend we’ve see a sharp rise in gorge girls adding pastel jumpers, hot pink bags, bold swirl patterns, and clashing colours to their wardrobes, so we know that bold colours work. Come on, we know you’re intrigued, add a bit of neon to your wardrobe and brighten up these dark winter days, we dare you…

With freezing temps still amongst we aren’t packing away our winter wardrobe just yet. However, spring months are slowly getting closer, why not add some spring vibes into your in between seasons wardrobe and opt for a neon jumper. Pair with wide-leg jeans, chunky trainers, a leather biker jacket, beanie hat, and a cross body bag.

Going out out means it’s time to get experimental. Why not add a neon dress to your going out wardrobe, perfect when paired with heeled sandals and a mini bag. Ps, all the festival line ups are being announced, so you know what that means… brightly coloured festival fits. Neon is about to become your bezzie mate.

Usually we pay more attention to our top half, choosing elaborate corset tops, brightly coloured coats & jackets, and decide to dismiss our bottom half. Recently the majority have been wearing black, blue, or khaki coloured bottoms. It’s time to change that, stand out from the crowd and switch up your style this season and pick a neutral top half piece. Team with neon trousers, skirts, shorts, or flares.

neon accessories

If you prefer being subtle and sweet rather than walking around lighting the way in your neon dress, then add a pop of colour to your fit with a few neon accessories. Accessories are essential to add to any outfit, we don’t care where you’re going, you need to add accessories. If you’re looking for casual attire opt for a neon orange hat and scarf combo, if you’re going out out reach for a neon hot pink bag, or if heading to the beach don’t forget a bright green bamboo bag.
