Neon dominated the SS19 runways at shows like Jeremy Scott and House of Holland, and these bold tones have already filtered down into the high street market as well. If you’ve been looking for the perfect way to start adding neon shades into your wardrobe, we’ve got a few ideas! And if you’ve been wanting to try the trend but aren’t sure if you can pull it off, let us reassure you that anyone can rock neon and if you’re not ready to dive in headfirst, you can start with mixing in some fun accessories. Read on to discover the 15 neon items we’re coveting this season.
One of the most eye-catching ways to wear neon is by wearing a top in a bold color. Whether you’re a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl, or you like having a no-fail tank top to layer within the warmer months, or you’re all about the drama and ruffles, we’ve found some options that will work for you.

As we all know, satin midi skirts have been all over the websites of fast fashion retailers (and our Instagram feeds, of course) but if you’ve been waiting for the perfect time to invest in one, why not go bold in a bright neon shade? If skirts aren’t for you, consider a pair of pants or some tailored shorts to add to your wardrobe this season.
