The Neon trend is everywhere lately. From the SS19 catwalks of New York, London, Milan and Paris to the red carpet and the gym, you could spot it on every fashionistas from lime green to blinding yellow, extra hot pink and flame orange. And if you thought that this trend will be a short flame SS19 definitely proved you wrong.
Some still get a bit intimidating by this trend, some still don't know how to style it so will not look too flashy, some don't know where to start from. I received a few requests for tips of how to style neon. So here we start with my 7 ways to wear neon turtleneck. I tried to put something for everyone … All my uptown and downtown girls… From easy and casual looks, to may be even some grungy sets. From fun and party vibes, to classy styles… so I hope everyone will find their perfect look below.
I choose to get on the board of the trend with neon yellow turtleneck. That’s may be the most popular one and easiest to go with. My choice of turtleneck is by Pretty Little Things. Which once again delivered the perfect combo of price and quality of the todays trends.
I’ll start with a cute, easy street style set. I combine my turtleneck with hight-rise perfect straight crop jeans and a khaki green open front puffer jacket. I love the combination between neon yellow and khaki. For me is the most balanced combination. I pair it with a leopard boots.
Leopard and Neon is an other very favorite combination of mine. I love the way the leopard pops on it. And even though I usually try to have only one poping element (considering that neon is already the statement in the look) I feel like in this case it works perfect. My cute round neon Deux Lux bag combines the whole set with it gray strap which corresponds perfectly with the silver mirrored sunnies.

Here is an other easy street style combo, were the neon top is combined with a leather pants and an oversized plated blazer. That set could be the perfect day to night look by simply changing the grungy leather boots with a hight heels.
This could easy be my favorite look. Here again we have the pop of color with the neon top and then we have a leopard as a statement pieces. The belted plaid brown blazer and the tobacco brown pants make the look perfectly grounded. To achieve this kind of look just balance the bright neon yellow with a good combo of earthy colors.
This I call the "no brainer" look. It's definitely the easiest. Black tight jeans, leather jacket and leather accessories. It’s very casual, very comfy, downtown look. You could elevate the look with a nice bag. My bag is by Sonia Rykel; Leather jacket by J. Crew Collection and my jeans are by J. Crew as well.
I think the combination of neon turtleneck and a cargo jacket is what sold me to the neon trend. I love it. It looks so fashionable and easy and its just feels like ME. I combined it with a crop boyfriend jeans and my fun colorful booties by San Edelman.
For a classier look of course we go to BLACK. Simple and sophisticated combo with a straight black leather pants and black long wool-cashmere coat. I elevate the look with a high heel sock booties and a suede clutch.
And last but definitely not least the most fun and playful look. Neon top with combination of cobalt blue wide-leg pants and nice leopard pic-a-boo. The pants give a nice volume to the whole look while the leopard give a cute little accent. I played around with the accessories using an old plastic blue and yellow neon neckless as a belt and my custom made art earings that I had made for me a while ago. That is very NO ONE will miss you walking by look in a very fashionable and “just enough” way.
So don't be afraid of attention, put your neon top and be ready to shine this season. Don’t forget to share with me which is your favorite look.
