The IT List: Neons with Neutrals

Pairing neutral pieces with neon pops of color is a great way to add some vibrancy to an outfit, without going overboard. But which neutrals really complement all of our favorite neons? Sure…black goes with everything, but it’s camel that softens the glare of a hot pink top. And though a crisp white paired with neon yellow gives off a summery feel, it’s gray that really makes it pop. We decided to compile a handy guide showcasing all of our favorite Neon & Neutral pairs.

The Pair: Neon Yellow & Grey

Something about a muted gray really makes neon yellow accents pop. We started with a monochromatic look – a grey collegiate tee from any Barnes & Noble College campus bookstore and a pair of grey skinny jeans. We added in a neon handbag and neon-capped ballet flats, which really stand out against the grey.

The Pair: Neon Pink & Camel

Hot pink can be hard to pull off (unless, of course, you’re Barbie). However, pairing highlighter pink accessories with a camel colored dress makes for the perfect combination. We took a Military Shirt Dress from Oasis and paired it with neon pink skimmers. For accessories, we opted for a neon pink statement necklace from BaubleBar and a cork-inspired clutch from J. Crew (to add some texture).

The Pair: Neon Orange & Egg Shell

Neon orange is no longer reserved for traffic cones and life preservers. In fact, when paired with a soft egg shell color, it can come out looking quite pretty. We took a brightly-colored River Island Skater Skirt and matched it up with a lacy crochet top from Awwdore. The neutral tone and intricate details of the shirt offset the attention-grabbing shade of the skirt. We finished it off with some adorable Steve Madden Oxfords and a funky geometric necklace from Forever 21.

The Pair: Neon Green & Navy Blue

The last color-duo we’ll be tackling is neon green & navy blue. The brightness of a lime green looks fabulous next to a deep navy. We took a vibrant pair of lace-trimmed neon shorts from Forever 21 and a flowy navy blue top from ModCloth. We also decided to break away from solid colors with a pair of navy & white striped loafers and finished off the look with silver triangular studs.
