Neon Nails

Neon Nails You might be new to this and maybe not quite daring yet to be sporting a hot pink dress with a yellow clutch. Luckily you don’t have to limit your ways to wear neon to just fluorescent-coloured clothes. Why not illuminate your nails with several shades of neon instead? There are so many colours to play around with and the countless of YouTube tutorials available offer you several funky designs to choose from. The neon rainbow ombre nail art is pretty easy to master. Give it a try!


Neon Make-up

Neon Make-up I know the thought of wearing shocking colours on your face sounds like a bad idea. But even if you are a newbie you can always find a way to bring a little neon into your everyday make-up. Look professional for work with a creamy pink pout or go for a vibrant orange lip when chilling out with your girlfriends. That’s not all! Forgot about black eye pencils! How about neon eyeliners for a night of party! Of course you don’t want to end up looking like a kaleidoscope of colours which is why you want to pick one feature on your face to splash a little neon on and keep the rest of the make-up light and simple.


Neon Belts

Neon Belts Pull your neutral tone outfit together with a neon belt. When easing into a trend you would want to sneak bit by bit in till you’re confident enough to embrace the whole look. You can choose to cinch your waist with a skinny neon belt while wearing a dress or add a highlighter yellow belt to dark denim jeans with a white vintage tee or blouse, semi-tucked in obviously. You want to show off the pop of colour!


Neon Heels

Neon Heels Now that you have on the dark denim jeans with the yellow belt and a white top, take it a step further and complete the whole outfit with heels of the same shade as the belt. There you have it! You just added a flash of striking colour to your staple closet items without comprising your comfort. Effortlessly bright and colourful!


Neon Bags

Neon Bags You can wear monochromatic outfits and still pull off the neon trend. How so? Carry an oversized clutch or a messenger bag in a neon shade. It instantly brightens up the outfit and leaves you looking fresh without wearing too much colours. Purchase one for the office too! This way you can still look fashionably colourful even when wearing formal attire.


Neon Jewelry

Neon jewelry whether chunky bangles, bracelets or statement necklaces are a much cheaper alternative if you’re considering on following the trend. No outfit is complete without an accessory or two and neon jewelry brings that extra punch to any outfit. Add in a few neon bangles between the basic coloured ones or skip the bangles and strap on a watch in a loud colour.


Neon Accented Clothes

Neon Accented Clothes If you really want to wear clothing in acidic hues but you are not confident enough, then consider buying clothes with neon accents instead. It’s a subtle way to embracing the neon look and also great for determining which colours will suit you best. You want to pick neon colours that work for you and stick with that!

You don’t have to colour-block intense colours from head-to-toe to rock the neon trend. Pick one item and work from there to fit in more. The bright colours are not only fun to wear but it will instantly brighten your mood too! What’s your take on the neon trend? Love it or hate it?
