How to Wear Neons in the Winter

During September Fashion Week you couldn't flip through street style blogs without spotting someone like Miroslava Dum and Shiona Turini in bright neons. I'm sure many of us have put away our bright clothing in exchange of the winter darks, but with the neon trend you just might want to dig out that neon skirt.
How to Wear Neons in the Winter

Romwe Puff sleeve top, $26.99
ASOS body con skirt, $18
Opaque stocking, $9.99
TopShop high heel boots, $124

Wearing neons during the winter is not as tricky as you might think. When wearing bright colors during the winter months you might want to tone it down a notch...so with that in mind pair up your neons with nude and neutral colors. A nude knitted sweater like the Romwe Puff Sleeve Top ($26.99) added with a neon bottom can give the whole look a winter feel do to it's chunkyness. Knitted sweaters are the essential winter piece that can pretty much go with anything. Sticking with the rule of dark accessories still with black tights and black booties. If you want to add pops of color play around with colorful small accessories like the TNA belt from Aritzia ($20...on sale in store). Doing a belt over a sweater and skirt can also help show off your shape by show casing your hips. There is no need to hide your figure in chunky knits!

Here is my take on the look:

Sweater: Romwe
Skirt: ASOS
Belt: TNA from Aritzia
Shoes: Deena and Ozzy from Urban Outfitters
Tights: H&M

  22. Yes. Yes I will try neons for winter! I am not a fan of the long nights and the sun setting before I'm even out of work, so it's definitely an idea to pick myself up with a bright wardrobe. Thanks for the tip on the chunky knit sweater, I'm in love :D Happy New Year!!
