You’ve probably noticed by now, but neon is coming back in a big way. I tried to avoid it (I have some rough memories of mullets and neon spandex from the 80s… ) But then a pair of neon yellow jeans called to me. You know the call, the one you can never ignore: “Oh hey – I need to be in your closet, now.”
And I gave in.
It was a thrilling purchase – and I practically skipped home on a post-shopping high. But then reality hit. Neon jeans, what was I thinking? How does one wear neon jeans?! Turns out, it’s not that hard. So here are a few of my tips for wearing neon denim:
1. Go casual! For this look I layered some neutrals with a classic jean jacket and rolled up the jeans. To add some pattern to the mix, I added my leopard print loafers and a polka-dot scarf. This look would be perfect for brunch with the girls!
2. If you’re going to be bright, be bright! I love how this purple top complements the yellow neon – it’s bold, but the grey accents tone it down a little, and keep if from burning your eyes… This would be a great look for grabbing cocktails.
3. Office chic! For this last look I wanted something I could wear to work. I went with black and grey to keep the neon under control, and added a statement necklace to glitz things up a bit. And the basic black pump keeps the look simple and chic.
How would you style neon jeans? Would you be more likely to dress them up or down?
