Tips for wearing neon


I love wearing neon colors!  Betsy does too!  Did you see her neon yellow post yesterday?
Neon colors can make such a statement.  Many people think neon is only for Summer, but don't make that mistake!!  I love wearing neon colors year round.  Try wearing a neon sweater like this cardigan or wrapping up in a neon scarf for an unexpected Fall/Winter color.

Neon pink is one of my favorite colors to wear and this blouse from The Mint Julep Boutique is gorgeous!  The cap sleeves are so flattering and the crochet detailing around the neck is stunning.

 When wearing neon, there are some things to keep in mind.  Below are tips to wearing neon.








Tips on Wearing Neon:
* If you are uncertain about neon colors, start off with neon accessories like a belt, shoes, jewelry or a purse.  These lime earrings are a beautiful color.  Or wear your neon on the bottom.  I love these Neon Peach Skinny Jeans, this Coral skirt, and these chartreuse shorts.

*If you are worried you won't look good in neon colors, try coral.  It's rich tone is universally flattering.  This coral dress and this coral sweater would be perfect.  

*Keep your jewelry simple.  Let the main focus be your neon!

*Wear your neon with neutral shades like white, camel, or grey.

*Go bold and wear multiple neon colors together.  Try bright blues + oranges OR pinks + yellows together.

  17. This outfit is great on you! I don't wear a lot of bright color because I don't like to draw attention to myself. I mostly stick to neutrals and texture. :)
