If you think neon hues are best reserved for funky 80s-themed party costumes, think again, because fashion designers from Marc Jacobs and Prabal Gurung, to Delpozo and Christian Siriano have all incorporated bold, fluorescent brights into their Spring/Summer 2018 collections — a trend that is sure to explode later in Fall.
Not sure how you can introduce such bright hues into your wardrobe? Don’t fret, it’s actually much easier than you think. Scroll down to see three simple outfit ideas that you can start incorporating into your everyday wardrobe.
It’s easy to get intimidated by these bold, highlighter hues, but wearing them from head-to-toe is actually the best way to carry the trend. All you have to do is pare it back with delicate jewellery as well as accessories in neutral colours, such as a pair of black rafia mules and white shades.

We all know a great pair of statement shoes can really light up an entire look, so go big with a pair of eye-popping neon heels or boots and mix it with your favourite summer pieces in a dark hue with just a few colour accents to echo your footwear.

Whether it’s belts, bags, pouches or jewellery, you can have some fun with neon colours by playing with bright, fluorescent accessories. You can always choose to keep the rest of your outfit plain and simple, but we think it’s more exciting to mix it with contrasting colours in a slightly softer hue for the ultimate summer vibe.
