How to Incorporate Neon Into Your Closet

Good morning everyone, so today’s post is about how to incorporate neon into your closet. I know it can be intimidating for some of us, myself included. It sure is a lot of colour to wear, especially for those of you who love the neutral colour palette. Now I like stepping out of my comfort zone and trying something that I usually wouldn’t go for. Do you ever do that, or is it just me? If however you’re still not convinced, here are a few ways of incorporating this bright colour into your closet without going full on neon.

 

/ DRESS / SHOES Similar / HAT Similar / SUNGLASSES Similar

ACCESSORIES

First up and the most obvious would be to start off with some neon accessories. Now that could entail say a belt that you can style with a neutral dress or suit. Shoes would be another option, a great way to make a statement with a pop of colour. My favourite is an all black ensemble teamed with a pair of hot pink shoes. How about a scarf, either wear it as a head band or why not wrap it around the handle of your hand bag to add a touch of colour.

 

SWIMWEAR

Moving on and onto swimwear which can be great for experimenting with colours. Neon on a tanned skin will look amazing weather you go to the beach or happen to be just lounging by the pool.

 

SPORTS WEAR

Sports wear is another great way of incorporating neon. Try out some leggings with neon stripes on the side. Why not go for an all black legging and top with a neon yellow hoodie! If you still feel thats still a bit much for you then go for some socks. Adidas do some great pair of white ones with the logo in neon.

 

BAGS

Like shoes bags is another way to add some neon accents to an all neutral outfit. The best way to do that is to keep the outfit monochrome, whether its whites, blacks or beige. Making sure to keep everything else simple!

 

DRESSES

Finally if your feeling bold like I am here you can go for a neon dress of your choice. Be it orange, yellow or pink, now the dress I am wearing is in the wrap style and is from Rotate Birger Christensen. There are a number of  ways I can style this dress, firstly on its own like I have done here. Secondly as a cover-up with a white swimsuit underneath, which I have done in the past. Last but not least style it with some blue denim jeans and a white tee or bodysuit leaving the dress untied. Take a look HERE to see how I styled it.

 

How would you go about incorporating neon into your closet? Which one of the pieces I have mentioned would you choose? Do let me know by leaving a comment below.

      Neon is the perfect summer colour. Although I don’t buy neon when it comes to regular clothes, my bathing suit is neon, some of my gym clothes contain neon as well and I like painting my nails neon but only during summer.

    I LOVE the brand Rotate! I have one of their dresses and obsessed. This pink one is fab! I’ll have to admit that I am a tad scared to wear neon bc I am not usually bright (other than the occasional orange), but I love how it looks for summer. Plus shows off a tan!

    I fully admit that most of my closet right now is blacks and greys, however, I would be interested in adding a little more colour. I don’t know that I could convince myself to do a full neon dress but there are a few of the accessory options that I could see myself running with! Thanks for the suggestions!

    Oh yes I so need to add some neon in my wardrobe. I saw a neon pink dress similar to the color of the bathing suit featured here on Femme Luxe that I almost got, and this dress looks amazing on you.

    Till now I have always stayed away from Neon, but I think I can experiment by adding a little bit of Neon in my closet like maybe a scarf or flipflops. I liked the flipflops and swimsuit a lot.
