Neon Green Is The New It Colour, According To Celebs | Clozette


Just because Living Coral was hailed as the Pantone Color of the Year, doesn't mean that it's gonna be the only hue that will take the spotlight in 2019. These days, it looks like the celebrities are favouring a certain neon shade. Spotted on the likes of Kendal Jenner, Rihanna and Bella Hadid is the eye-catching neon green. We've already predicted maximalism to be a big trend this year, but we didn't expect it to take off so soon. If you're just as excited as we are, here are some celebrity-inspired tips on how to wear the neon green trend without looking ridiculous.


Pair it with black



Are you a little wary of wearing neon green? Take a cue from Kendall Jenner and pair your neon piece with black to balance your look. If you want to add a more colourful flair, you can also sport a makeup look and accessories in shades of green.


Wear it as an accent



Neons work great as accents because they add pizzazz to an otherwise plain ensemble. There are countless ways to incorporate neon green into your outfit. You can wear a neon vest over a crisp button-down like Bella Hadid, use a neon green belt or a scarf and the list goes on. Just make sure that it won't clash with the other colours you're already wearing.


Layer a neon green third piece



Be it a coat or a jacket, wearing a neon green third piece will give your outfit an instant upgrade. Just look at how Rihanna matched her statement tee with this glam oversized faux fur. It's also not as intimidating as wearing a neon top or pants since you can take it off or style it however you want. If you're not yet sure that you like this neon trend but want to try it out, buy a third piece first and see how it feels after wearing one a few times.


Suit up



For some reason, a single bright colour always works on a suit. Think about how Queen Elizabeth manages to pull off the most eccentric shades and the good news is, you can, too. So if your love for neon green is at an all-time high this month, don't be afraid to go all out. Let Blake Lively in this Versace number inspire you to take risks like a true-blue fashionista.



Go for edgy, clean cuts



Believe it or not, you can look super sleek in neon. The key to streamlining your look is to go for pieces with crisp cuts. A great example is this ensemble worn by Ashely Graham where her top beautifully and seamlessly matches her neon green pants.



Chanel Iman's party look is another evidence that with clean, elegant silhouettes, neon green can easily be the new black.

A good and enriching travel experience isn't just about going to destinations that are off the beaten tracks. Spectating in a foreign country to learn about its city life can also prove to be fun, entertaining and culturally mind-opening because it shows us a different perspective on what other people consider as normal and routinary. With the array of coffee shops, museums, parks and all the wondrous architecture to explore, not to mention all the walking and commuting in between, wearing the right 'city travel style' is of utmost importance to maximise the experience. So what better way to nail it than to take inspiration from how our Community have made comfort and style meet as jetsetters.

We're two weeks into the new year, and we can say we've finally eased into it. The flow of news from the worlds of fashion and beauty definitely helped us get over the holiday rush. Now, we're back on track and ready for more. We're excited, as we're sure you would be, too, about these things we learned.


Most Liked Instagram Photo



Yes, you're looking at it. This photo of an egg is currently the holder of the title of "Most Liked Instagram Photo." It beat Kylie Jenner's photo, which has 18 million likes. Now, the next question is: how long is it going to be on top?


You stars are in Manila



Penn Badgley and Shay Mitchell, two of the stars of the Netflix show You, are in Manila to talk about their controversial series. The two will do a series of press cons and interviews until tomorrow. With Shay having a penchant for travelling and exploring (not to mention having roots here), there's a big possibility you may find her (perhaps with Penn) going around the Metro. Keep an eye out on them... but definitely not as much as Joe did on Beck.

Monochrome Mood




Aside from celebrities, you should also keep an eye out on beauty trends. There's bound to be plenty this year. But we implore you to take a look at the monochromatic makeup trend first. If you've ever had trouble matching your lipstick to your eyeshadow or your blush to your lip gloss, here's an easy — but still impactful — way to go about it is the monochrome look. It's basically using the same hues from a certain colour family. If you're still unsure, MAC has made it easy for you with their collection of products that carry extensions of their cult-favourite lipsticks, such as Ruby Woo, Velvet Teddy and Candy Yum-Yum.


Are wide belts making a comeback?



Bella Hadid is definitely making a case for it. She was recently spotted wearing a white studded belt that looked like it belonged in her mum's wardrobe. We're a bit into it. What say you?
