Chasin' That Neon Rainbow



Source: elle.com via Sunny on Pinterest




One fashion trend that I adore at the moment is wearing neon colors. I have always loved these bright, vivid colors. To me they are an instant confidence booster, because to wear something that loud, you have to be confident and bold. The trick to pulling off this look is to pair your neon item with neutrals to tone down the boldness of the neon color. I think neon green would love amazing with khaki and light browns. I love how the women above are wearing their neons with neutrals. They all look totally amazing. I have also put together a couple of looks that I would love to own for my neon color looks.

Look # 1
One of my favorite color combinations is orange and blue. In this outfit it's a beautiful neon orange skirt with a navy blue blazer. I would love to have this look.

Look # 2
I thought this neon blue dress was so fun and cheerful looking. To tone down the brightness of this dress I have paired it with a white blazer and silver accessories.

What do you think about this trend? Do you own any neon pieces? How do you wear them?

  13. I'm all about the tangerine orange these days. Paired with white or neutrals, I think it's such a killer colour!

  16. Yes...loving the bright colors and yes...you do have to pair them with neutrals...blacks, browns, navy or white. It is just too bold to wear with another bold. Love all of your outfit ideas girl! Kiah

  18. I am never a fan of neon or bright colors but since the fashion color blocking is getting all the hype I am so loving bright purple and neon pink. Shocker! I am not usually a fan of pink but I think it's so adorable!
