Tiffany and Styling the Neon trend

August 3, 2015
Am I the only one that’s having a love affair with neons this summer?  No? I didn’t think so. Neons are so fun to incorporate into outfits, especially a peachy neon shade like the shirt I’m wearing. No matter what shade of neon you’re wearing, however, I think that they always pair perfectly with the most classic of color palettes–black and white (with a little leopard mixed in).
Here, I’ve paired my neon shirt with black shorts, which really allows my shirt to shine.  I chose my black and white Kendra Scott necklace in black and white to anchor the outfit and tie in the black shorts.  For shoes, I went with a neutral gold pair so that they weren’t competing for attention with the rest of the outfit.  And I think we all can agree that leopard goes with just about anything, right?:)

Shirt: Old Navy (similar–size down at least 1 size)
Shorts: Old Navy
Necklace: Kendra Scott via Clothes Mentor Lexington (sold out online)
Earrings: Kate Spade (price increase:( there were $19 + 25% off when I bought them)
Sandals: Lilly Pulitzer (similarsimilar but less expensive)
Clutch: Forever 21 via Instagram friend (sold out)
As for my hair, I decided to try out a half-bun, which, according to Instagram, is all the rage right now.  I tried to give some different angles to show it off, because I think it’s a fun hairstyle and a great way to get your hair out of your face on a humid day.  Let me tell you, Kentucky has been HOT.
As for my outfit, I’m all about saving money.  My Old Navy tee and Kate Spade earrings were on super clearance, my Kendra Scott necklace is from my favorite thrift store (seriously only a fraction of retail price), and my sweet leopard clutch was sourced from Instagram. I love mixing high-end and low-end pieces for my own look.

    I have a love-hate relationship with neon but the leopard addition sure looks nice.

      I love utilizing leopard as a neutral to really anchor bright colors in an outfit.

      Thanks, Shannon! The leopard clutch was a last minute addition, but I can see transitioning this outfit to fall with some matching leopard flats!!!

  • Karla Cook August 4, 2015 at 9:25 am

    Now that’s a shade of neon I could wear! I don’t necessarily care for all neon colors, but pairing it with black and white and leopard print? That works.

    Love the hairstyle, too. I’ll have to give that one a try.

    • Tif @ Bright on a Budget August 5, 2015 at 5:12 pm

      I love mixing neons with a healthy dose of neutrals! And this hairstyle was so easy! I just pulled it half back in a messy bun with an elastic, and used 2 bobby pins to keep it in place.
