Neon outfits ideas is trending! How to style neon clothes for women?

When it comes to trends of the year 2019, there are only two ways to do it: either keep it minimal with beige and whites or try to blind everyone with neon and shimmer. We're here to talk about the latter, neon outfits ideas to be specific. This 80s trend has made itself super prominent this year and has been dominating all fashion runways this year.


From Blake Lively’s neon green suit to Ashley Graham's Prabal Gurung neon sweater dress, neon clothes for women are everywhere. Designers like Valentino and Brandon Maxwell sent neon outfits ideas  down the catwalks of spring-summer 2019. This time, it’s not just highlighter lemon green that is being looked up at ‘the’ neon, but an entire full spectrum of colors are being represented, from neon purple and fluorescent blue and more.

Millennial Pink is out, and unforgettable neon colors are in. Fashion queens like Kim Kardashian, Jenner sisters, Rihanna, Hadid sisters, and Jordyn Woods have all been spotted rocking the neon clothing trend. There are over 11 million posts on Instagram under hashtag #neon. Now, that’s some craze, isn’t it? Instagram makes styling neon clothes for women look like a piece of cake but when it comes to doing it in real life, pulling off those brighter-than-bright looks and figuring out just how to wear neon this fall ain’t that simple.

This almost bonafide trend can be pretty terrifying to try and step out if it doesn’t already fall in your comfort zone. The answer to your worries of looking like a walking highlighter or how to pair neon clothes with other colors  is just a few scrolls away. We’ve put together a handy guide on pulling off the trend like a pro for the current season and the colder months to come.

Statement Neon outfits ideas

This inarguably bold fashion choice can be worn head-to-toe on an entire jumpsuit or gown. What makes this worth the dare is the fact that you can throw on a neon orange jumpsuit and call it a day. Simple, no fuss outfit while making a jaw-dropping statement. For those who are ready for a head-to-toe neon look but are not sure about the color choices, we’d suggest opting for shades like neon orange, highlighter green and yellow. While wearing these statement-making pieces, it is important to keep away from statement neon accessories, like a purse or pair of shoes and instead, pair them with neutral shades like beige or white. Keep your makeup minimal and go for a bold eyeliner.

Subtle and Casual

In a neon-fueled fashion world, sometimes it's best to give it a try even if you have never imagined yourself wearing such bright colors. To keep things under control, start subtle and pair a neon t-shirt with sneakers, and you’ve got yourself a trendy casual look. As your confidence slowly builds to wear this challenging style more boldly, loose the restraints and add more neon elements to your casual outfit. Things like a perfect electric green clutch or a classic beanie knitted from a highlighter blue yarn, which will pop against a basic bodycon dress or t-shirt.

Good news for fashionistas who worship comfort in everything they wear, 80s neon fashion trend in 2019 is literally everywhere and can be worn however you want to. This season, keep it sporty and bright. Go for highlighter hues like magenta and acid green and lean into the attention. Make your workout outfits look fresh and chic by wearing a spaghetti strap tank top in light yellow paired with neon baggy track pants and a pair of matching shoes. For a more subtle approach, pair a black and white colored bomber with shiny yellow belted dress and matching kicks.

Color Blocking

We are loving the neon-on-neon trend. Think of citron yellow, lime green and hot pink to update your everyday spring look. A neon-bright long-sleeved jumper looks awesome tucked in bright pink skirt. Complete the look by adding combat boots or sneakers and neon handbag. Another sassy pairing is neon bright yellow colored sweater with a mini flared skirt and bright red pumps.
