Runways from New York to Paris are bringing back fashion’s brightest and chicest colors that we just cannot afford to miss out this season. It all started at Prada’s fall 2018 show and since then, neon clothes are everywhere. From flashy pinks and melodramatic yellow to the classic vivid greens, celebrities have embraced this 80’s trend of wearing highlighter hues and they are absolutely killing it. But whoever said neon is just for the runways and the famous, need to reconsider their statements because they are immensely wearable and can fit perfectly in your daily wardrobe. Let’s see how!
We can safely say that Alia Bhatt has totally conquered the neon trend as she made several appearances donning neon in various silhouettes in its many different shades. For the promotions of her recent film, Gully Boy at the Berlin Film Festival, Alia wore a beautiful custom-made lime green gown by Prabal Gurung. The neon silk faille straight-cut dress was flamboyant with a hand-draped train and thigh-high slit. The actress chose to ditch all her accessories to highlight the dress even more, which certainly is an important fashion tip to take home.
Love the ongoing neon trend? Say yes to this shock of fluorescent in a neon orange co-ord set. Wear a striped colour-blocked bright orange blazer and pair it up with matching shorts. Layer a simple white top underneath the blazer to highlight the shiny tangerine hue. Go for strappy black heels and keep your hair down for a super chic and breezy look.
Tip: If you are confident and love trying news styles, you can go with monochromatic neon outfit for the electric look.
Brighter than the Sun
Priyanka Chopra showed us how to elegantly sport this bygone trend. Styled by Mimi Cuttrell, she redefined glam in her long sleeved classy neon yellow blouse tucked inside a matching bright midi-skirt featuring a slit in the centre on the front. Priyanka rocked this monochrome neon look by pairing it up with black trendy glasses and white strappy heels while completely doing away with any accessories.
Turn your street-style fashion game up a notch in a lime green turtleneck full-sleeved top tucked inside a high-waist skirt buttoned down at the center. Choose a skirt in neutral shades like dark beige or light brown. Sport this ensemble with heeled pumps and a trendy oversized clutch. Glam up the look with oversized sunglasses and you are good to go.
Make your winter workout attire more fashionable and chic and invest in a neon orange sweatshirt. Ditch your boring grey hoodies and embrace this up and coming neon trend. Pair it up with matching sports shoes and your regular black jeggings. Round off the look with oversized transparent orange sunglasses.
The Neon Trend : Indian Version
The neon trend has been creeping into ethnic wear for a while now and Deepika Padukone is here to prove that. She looks stunning in an acid green Arpita Mehra saree featuring a single streak of color on a neutral netted base with neon pink mirrored border. The Bollywood diva styled her hair in a high ponytail to add a fresh twist to the shiny day wear and she rounded off the look with sparkly tassel earrings and a bindi.
Take inspiration from Deepika and drape a beautiful neon saree for your next ethnic event. A shiny satin green saree speaks volumes of elegance and style. Wear it with a sleeveless neon pink satin blouse and black heels. Say no to accessories and embroidery and wear minimal make up to own this beautiful and trendy traditional look.
Casual Wear with a Shiny Twist
Parineeti Chopra gave us major athleisure fashion goals through her recent Instagram updates. She posted photos of herself wearing a super trendy mint green Zara top paired up with a black A-line midi-skirt. Styled by Sanjana Batra, Parineeti rounded off the look with trendy sunglasses and while heels from the Truffle Collection. Sans much accessories, she perfectly owned the neon trend with her glam hair and pink pout and a lot of sass.
Don’t we all have that one amazing skirt that we want to show off but we just cannot find the perfect top for it? Embrace the neon trend and pair it up with a simple but shiny neon orange tee. This can look great when worn with an A-line denim skirt and chic white ankle boots.
Bold and Bright in Neon
Bella Hadid is known for her bold sartorial choices but her recent appearance has turned a lot of heads. Her quite unique take on the neon trend sweeping Hollywood has no doubt become the talk of the town. She was spotted wearing a highlighter yellow knit vest designed by Virgil Abloh. She layered the utility vest over an oversize light blue shirt that acted as a mini dress and paired it up with Louis Vuitton sneakers and skater socks.
Neon is not just for the breezy summer months. You can effortlessly incorporate shiny neon clothes in your daily wardrobe. Spice up your regular wear by replacing your old sweaters with a bright neon green one. Pair it up with your blue denim jeans and add a pop of contrast by wearing trendy white sneakers with the outfit. You can also carry matching neon blue and green tote bag for your everyday essentials and you are ready for a college day in style.
So gear up, ditch your comfort zone and invest in these bold and shiny colors because the neon trend is here to stay.
