It's on in Neon

Neon colors were a big trend this summer. Wearing them can be really fun and give you a definite energy boost, but the trend can also go horribly wrong. One rule about pulling off the neon look is to pair it with neutrals. There are two ways to do this. If you really want your neon color to pop, pair it with a black or white neutral, as I did in this outfit. The strong contrast highlights the color (literally). If you'd like to tone down your neon, pair it with a more natural neutral, like brown, tan, or gray. This combination allows the neutral to complement the neon color for the perfect balance.

Did you rock neon colors this summer?

 
I was wearing:
Neon pink burnout top | Black Gap tank top | Black jeggings | Pink Steve Madden pumps | Pink Aldo clutch

Thanks for reading!

  25. Very nice! I totally agree, neon should be paired up with something neutral like black or white. I don't know why some people don't understand that, they end up looking like glow in the dark stickers. xD
