Neon orange is the new black! The 1980s trend has come full circle, and now it's back with a vengeance. Nevermind how we all know it as a challenging color to wear—it's 2019, and there are tons of new ways to sport it! Either use restraint and add pops of neon orange or go all out in head-to-toe fluorescent maximalism.
Below, we've compiled a list of all the freshest ways to rock the color of the moment to avoid looking like a traffic cone, courtesy of our favorite style stars!
1. Aimee Song
Stand out from the crowd and add sparkles to your look with a sequined midi skirt like Aimee Song's. It has a playful texture that adds depth to the bold color. Plus, it will look luminous against the setting sun! Pair it with a printed shirt in a matching hue and just wait to be bombarded with likes on your next OOTD!
2. Gabbi Garcia
The bold orange hue is already attention-grabbing by itself, so why not wear it to your next party for an instant statement? To turn heads, copy Gabby Garcia's cropped jacket and matching mini skirt ensemble. Pair it with black thigh-high boots and call it a day!
3. Daryl Chang
This raver color isn't just for hitting the clubs or the streets. Daryl Chang proves it can be worn to the office as an alternative to the usual black or gray boardroom suits! Own the spotlight in your next meeting and rock a boxy blazer and cropped trousers combo in the highlighter hue. Pair 'em with a slouchy boyfriend tee to add more character to the table.
4. Alisa Ueno
Make like Japanese blogger and influencer Alisa Ueno and team a neon orange midi skirt with a pair of white chunky sneakers. Throw on a Louis Vuitton mini soft trunk by Virgil Abloh and you've got yourself a street style-worthy travel OOTD!
5. Kelsey Merritt
What better way to rock the intense citrus hue than for a Mexican holiday? Dance the night away at a salsa club or lounge in front of the beach a la Kelsey Merritt in a twisted wrap dress. A little neon orange dress (LOD) will energize your holiday wardrobe anywhere you go!
6. Patricia Henson
Neon orange is definitely not an easy color to pull off, but model and influencer Patricia Henson does it so effortlessly in a Boom Sason high cut bikini. Take your cue from her and stock up on this bright swimwear for your next beach trip! The electric tangerine hue will look amazing against the blue ocean, as well as the tan you’ve been working on all summer!
7. Marian Rivera
Want something casual yet still statement-making? Then turn to Marian Rivera, whose recent bright OOTD caught our eye. That sunny orange top featuring leg of mutton sleeves make for a polished yet chic pairing with her pristine white trousers.
