I love to hold on to trendy fashion pieces because I know they’ll probably be back in style at some point again. Take the neon trend. It’s hot and it’s happening right now. Neon on its own seems to make a major comeback about once every decade. This time around, I’ve been seeing a lot of pairing of neon pieces with neutrals. Think khaki, tans, whites and blacks. That’s a bit of a departure from neon looks from the 80’s where the style trick was to just pile it on! We wore neon head to toe, and were all walking around looking like mixed packs of highlighters!
This year’s neon trend is much more classy and refined. I love the pairing of neutrals with neons. It creates a fun surprise within a classic look. My favorite outfit options for pairing neon and neutrals include:
Khaki tench coats and dresses paired with a neon top and white boots
Neutral or neutral print blazers (think snake or check) with a neon top or biker shorts, if you’re feeling fancy!
A neon jacket or coat paired with a neutral dress, or white shirt and khaki pants
A neon top paired with softer colors of the same shade (like a neon pink top paired with a blush jacket and rose pink trousers)
I purchased this neon/acid yellow coat in the Fall and it continues to be one of my favorite and most versatile pieces. It pops on its own, so I usually pair it with a nutral, though I wouldn’t be against adding some more neon to my look because I’m adventurous when it comes to fashion. But in this case, I paired it with a simple tan ribbed dress to really make it pop. Then I added some neutral, colorful accessories to balance out the bright neon with the neutral.
