How I Wear My: Neon

Welcome to the 23rd How I Wear My!
With summer winding down but not over just yet, what better way to celebrate the end than with a boost of Day-Glo color? While it may seem as though neon is the domain of construction crews, athletes, and kids, is there a way to add a shot of it to your outfit in a fun or even glamorous way? Jill of Everything Just So and I decided to investigate this month in “How I Wear My: Neon”
Jill starts us off by looking oh so very chic and sophisticated in a white Zara blazer, black tee and black slacks. For a splash of color…
Jill added her Hermès Twilly scarf in the Grand Manège pattern with brilliant neon lime.
Sheree of It’s Not That Deep wears a neon yellow floral print blouse and has the added pop of neon in her look with a small but striking clutch.

Veshoevius of The Taxonomy of My Wardrobe paired this lovely (and unexpected) neon lemon-lime sheath dress with lavender lace overlay with a sweet lavender cardigan and edgy neon strappy sandals. Ladylike with a touch of naughty! What’s not to love?

Annette of Lady of Style was surprised by this gift from her daughter, a neon orange wrap dress from London. We love how Annette kept her accessories neutral, allowing her and her beautiful gift to really shine!

Alice of Happiness at Mid-Life looks beautiful and summery in a lemony neon yellow dress.

She added even more neon to her look with bright pink drop earrings and belt, which she looped so cleverly!

Avril from Royal Ribbons goes for a neon preppy look with hot pink khakis and bright green boat shoes.

Heather of StyleMindChic and I planned to wear neon ahead of time when we met up last month here in Kenwood. Heather wore a neon lime link bracelet with matching earrings, and the day before, while visiting another winery in the Sonoma Wine Country, she wore neon yellow sling-back pumps. So chic!

Alicia of Spashionista looks radiant in this Indian Pink neon pencil skirt from ideeli. Alicia says it’s incredibly comfortable and that it’s garnered lots of compliments. No surprise there!

Trina of Tea Time with Trina doubles up on neon with a bright neon yellow blazer….

and these awesome neon strappy heels.

These shoes are HOT and so are Trina’s great gams! See the other ways that Trina styled these shoes on her blog.

Ana of Mrs. American Made wears a patterned Nanette Lepore dress with a bit of neon that is vibrant, feminine and made in the U.S.A.

Tamera of Tamera Beardsley adds color to her neutral stripes with neon pink suede flats from Anthropolgie. The shoes illuminate the touches of neon in her amazing brooch necklace that she made herself.

My stepdaughter, Tori, wore this Guess neon lace dress to her high school graduation last May.

Youthful and fresh-looking, just like Tori, the dress has a fetching little cut-out on the back.

I bought this emerald Gabby Skye Jersey Peplum Dress recently and thought I would jazz it up with a little neon.

I wore the Bauble Bar neon necklace that I had on when I met up with HeatherIt has such a fun color scheme and I thought the emerald green center stone made it ideal for my new dress.

The fall fashion magazines are declaring animal print is hot for fall but really, isn’t that something that never goes out of style? We feel quite certain you own at least one item that borrows its beauty from an animal so join us in October for “How I Wear My: Animal Print”.

Send a photo to Jill or me, or to our new email account: howiwearmy@yahoo.com by October 1, 2013.

Don’t limit yourself to leopard, we would love to see it all—zebra, cow, giraffe, Dalmatian, lizard, pony, snake. If it mimics an animal, we want to see it on you!

Don’t miss a visit to Jill’s for even more fantastic Neon looks!
And a BIG thank you to all the HIWM participants.
Jill and I appreciate you all so much!
xo, Adrienne

    Adrienne dear~I always enjoy seeing so many different stylings of the same trend.
    Each and every one of has a unique twist. Of course I very much liked your neon necklace when we met at the winery(it looked like a Tom Binns!) It just go to show how well you can carry off any piece and make it look fab. Everyone looks super stylish-from shoes to dresses to scarves. I think Jill’s hermes looks gorgeous on her. As always thanks for the trendy fun every month my friend!
    xx, Heather
    PS-I agree-animal print never goes out of style for me either 😉

    Fab necklace and love your peplum dress! I was really looking forward to this series and I’m not disappointed! So many wonderful neon ideas! Especially love the neon on neon looks.

    I love neon and I’m so in awe of all of you sporting the trend to perfection! The jewelry, the shoes, the jackets; all of it is very grown up and elegant. I’m really in love with Jill’s Hermes scarf. It reminds me of one I owned in the 80’s – although mine wasn’t nearly as nice!

    Did you say animal print for next month? Just remember you asked for it! 😉

    Adrienne, Some really fabulous ladies here! Love so many of the looks. This is one of the best posts by far. Your green is gorgeous on you. The animal prints sounds fun. I will try to participate. This was a crazy time and I’m sad I didn’t get it together for this!
