Seven Outfits for Seven Days: Neon

by Masha

In this seven outfits for seven days tutorial, I’m going to show you seven outfits for the week from Monday to Sunday, wearing neon yellow t-shirts. It can be daunting to wear neons if you’ve never done so before, but no need to worry; after reading this tutorial, you’ll have the confidence to style them.

How to wear neon colors


In this outfit, I’m wearing a neon yellow t-shirt with a leopard print midi-skirt and white sneakers. I put my hair up into a high bun and completed the look with a nice pair of round sunnies. If it gets a little chilly, I’ve got a black leather biker jacket to throw on top. This look is perfect if you want to stand out from the crowd. The bold leopard print combined with the vibrant neon color is really eye-catching, and both pieces work well together. The jacket and sneakers help to ground the look making it a suitable outfit for everyday wear.

How to wear neon shirts


Here I went for a different t-shirt in the same neon yellow color with black print that says ‘minimalist.’ I’ve paired the t-shirt with beige high-waisted paperbag pants. I love wearing neon with neutral colors since it helps to balance out this extra bright color. I added neon yellow socks with my strappy heels to complete the look and put a little twist on it by wearing them on top of a hot pink pair. When I sit, the pink is sticks out the top, and this pop of hot pink makes the outfit interesting and cool.

How to wear neon sneakers


Here I’m wearing black culottes with my neon t-shirt and black strappy heels. The black brings the bold hue into balance. Any black pants or skirt will work, and you can choose any neon color for your top, and you will get a stylish high-fashion look. The heels add a gorgeous feminine edge.

In this outfit, I went for color blocking. In general, blue and yellow look good together, so I used a neon yellow t-shirt with royal blue pants. I finished the look off with simple black boots. An outfit like this is comfortable, casual, and trendy yet also bold and makes a statement. I added dangly earrings with blue details to match the blue pants.

How to wear the neon trend


I went with a pair of white culottes and white sneakers for a relaxed and more toned-down outfit for Friday’s look. These culottes have flower prints down both sides, making them stylish, and I think they go well with the bold neon t-shirt. I went with a plain neon shirt here as I didn’t want to overdo things by wearing too many prints together.

Styling neon clothing


Outfit six is based on my favorite color combination - all basic neutral tones plus neon. I’m wearing the same pants that I wore for the Tuesday look, but I changed my heels for sneakers for a comfortable, relaxed look. To ground the look even more, I’m wearing a brown trench coat on top. You can see how the brown neutralizes the bright neon t-shirt and creates a balanced look. I completed this look with some accessories - my brown wooden watch and a snakeskin print bag.


This Sunday, I want something light and bright, so if you’re not afraid to show off your colors, then this could be a perfect outfit for you. Here I have a neon sleeveless maxi dress worn over a t-shirt. If you have a neon skirt, then that might also be a good option. I’ve added a black belt and black boots for a grunge style. If it gets a bit chilly, then you can throw a black biker jacket on top.

If you weren’t a fan of neon before, then I hope that I’ve converted you. Neon is bold and makes a statement, but you can incorporate it into a stylish and put-together outfit when worn with the right clothes.
