Subtle Neon - How to Wear 2012 Neon Fashion Trend in Three Subtle Ways

Can you believe that New York Fashion Week is already in full swing? Crazy, isn't it? While designers introduce the newest of fall, girlies like us are still getting used to spring and summer fashion trends.


One of the brightest 2012 fashion trends is neon. Boy has it become a favorite in blogosphere! Fellow bloggers have worn the neon trend in all kinds of ways -- color blocking, leggings...you name it!

Unlike those brave souls on fashion blogs, I get timid about wearing the latest style. Something as loud as the neon trend certainly intimidates me. But they, you only live once, right? If I can't go full-on neon like others, there are alternative ways to do it. 

Here are three subtle but cute ways to wear 2012 neon fashion trend:

Neon Nail Polish

A great way to wear brights is to try it for makeup. Painting your nails a bright color is an inconspicuous way to introduce neon trend.

Try Wet n' Wild Wild Shine in Sunny Side Up.


Bright polish for brighter days ahead.

Neon Accessories

Next time you step out, punch up your outfit with a neon accessory. The clutches I saw at Target below make great adornments.

Aren't they adorable?

Mix Fun with Business


Color blocking with various shades of neon looks super cute. A subtler way, however, is to pick one neon item, and mix it with something less attention-grabbing.

Here I have paired a neon print top with a business-y pencil skirt -- a witty way to add a trendy twist to classic pieces, right?

A neon top can really spice up an outfit.


Don't you just love pencil skirts? They are such classics.

  11. Neon is hard for me to wear. I love your neon top. It just the "right" amount of neon. Pencil skirts are classic and give shape to any figure. Great post:)

  12. I have mixed feeling about the neons... it's seems to have made a return to the scene too quickly. Didn't we just have a fashion outbreak of everything bold and bright? I am excited about the different ways they are using them though. I really like the color blocking look and love the ways you've applied them to your daily life. Very cute!

  18. That's a pretty outfit, a really nice way of wearing neon without it being too in your face. I swear I must have smelled this trend coming because I recently got the urge to buy tons of neon polishes for no apparent reason. I'm well prepared and I hadn't even realised! Ha ha :)

  24. I love to add a little pop of neon everyonce in a while. Like you, I prefer to select one piece like a top, nail polish or an accessory. I'd love to try neon tights, but they're not always work-friendly.

  25. I LOVE your outfit, it's fun and sophistocated at the same time <3

  26. I'm intimidated by the neon trend but I love how you paired it up with a pencil skirt that really does make a difference when it comes to toning it down. I also might go the nail polish route since nails are so small and less flashy.

  32. I absolutely love pencil skirts for work too. The neon top with the pencil skirt is a brillant way to look fashionable but serious for work at the same time.
    I would definitely try this look!

  42. Hello,
    I don't like this trend, but you look adorable in that cardigan. I like that you mix neon with black and classy skirt.
    As to neon nail polish... maybe I will buy one and the nail polish most probably will the only way I'll wear the neon trend...
