Neon Green Is The New It Colour, According To Celebs

Are you bold enough to try this trend?

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.
