How to style neon this summer
It’s official: All of the fashion trends you thought you’d never see again are making a comeback. From Y2K-inspired fashion to mom jeans, the fashion trends we grew up on are now suddenly trendy again.
The one trend we thought was gone for good? Neon. We spotted some celebrities such as P!nk and Hilary Duff in some bright pink ensembles and had a feeling neon might be the next big thing — but then our very own Sheinelle Jones donned a bright neon sweater, and we knew it was official.
Neon wasn’t always the easiest thing to style back then, so luckily Jill Martin stopped by the 3rd hour of TODAY to share all of the ways you can style it now. From bold sneakers and chic accessories to makeup and even bagels, Jill has all of the items you’ll want in your wardrobe this summer.
Otto Cap Neon Trucker Hat
We almost couldn’t believe that trucker hats have found their way back into mainstream fashion, but this affordable style comes in several different colors that you might actually want to wear. From neon yellow to a 2000s-esque black and pink style, there are plenty of options to pair with the rest of the looks below. For a customizable option, Jill is loving these hats from And That Swag, a small business located on Long Island.
Aldo Loretta Sandal
Thong sandals are here to stay, and this bright pink pair can be styled with everything from jeans to dresses. If pink isn’t your style, Jill found these cute blue block heel sandals, these bright green heels, a pair of conversation-starting sandals and of course, a cute pair of neon sandals that happen to be on sale right now.
Skechers Women’s Uno Night Shades Trainers
These sneakers aren’t just on trend, they are also comfortable. With a memory foam insole, an air-cushioned midsole and an outsole that provides flexible traction, you might not ever want to take them off.
