Neon Green in Street Style Fashion
Neon Green in Street Style Fashion

The color green just like purple has a plethora of shades from hunter green, army green, forest, olive and lime green to neon green, emerald green and jade to name a few. Much as it’s not my go to color unlike the color purple, Pantone’s pick for the year 2018, it has a unique way of uplifting a street style ensemble or any ensemble for that matter.

The energy that surrounds neon green in particular can’t be overemphasized. Little wonder it’s been very visible on the runways and ultimately on the shelves of a lot of retailers. 
Are you a fan?

Neon green has a richness and boldness to it that makes it perfectly seasonless. It also has a ‘pleasant surprise’ factor to it that will leave one wanting more. From a little piece of accessory or coordinate to a full blown neon green infatuation that will have heads turning as well as leave folks green with envy. Ha!

Head to toe green’d out is often times how I’ve seen this color styled. If you just cringed at the thought, I want you to know that you are not alone. Not by a long shot! You couldn’t pay me to leave my home clad in all green as recently as one month ago. Until I set eyes on this set from @judannclothings (introduced here, here, here) featuring a caftan with a high low hem as well as a summery array of flowers daintily sprinkled on the upper left corner and a matching crisp high waisted wide leg pants. 

I knew right away that I wanted to wet my feet in the H2T neon green craze but I also wanted to show a perfect street style with one or both of the pieces for those who are newbies or still be on the fence. I looked to add a different color that would compliment yet tone down the green just a tad. Blue naturally came to mind since they’re both next to each other on the color spectrum. 

The verdict? 
This duo sang a perfect harmony! 

I finished the look with a boater hat and an ark bag, another huge summer trend that could only house my wallet and phone for obvious reasons. Ha!

  19. I do love green and I agree that neon green has that surprise effect. Neon green is so eye-catching. You've style it so well dear.

    This neon green set is beyond gorgeous....and I love both outfits. The jacket/top looks perfect both paired with the matching green pants and with black ones. Either way, both outfits are stunning and look amazing on you.


    You always rock Idu! Your sense of style is spot on...Special love for the bag and the hat. You always know how to accessorize.

  21. An impressive look, I like the color green, I do not have clothes in that tone but accessories, that shade of green I like for spring and summer. I really liked the complements that you used the hat and that bag with a peculiar design. Kisses.

  22. As much as I love the head to toe look on you, I´d probably go with the black bottom version. If I´d ever wear a color that bold, that is.

  35. I love that you're spotlighting neon green, which looks amazing on you by the way, because I actually just purchased a sweater in a very similar shade. It's a tad darker, but it's green and vibrant nonetheless. So, yes, I'm loving it as much as you! You wear it so well, as you do any color, and I really love the way you've worked in such beautiful summer-y details. Thanks for the inspiration, beauty, and I hope you're having a great week so far!

  40. I've never really been a fan of this shade, but your outfit has me thinking otherwise. Of course, I don't think I could pull this colour off quite like your fabulous self Idu, but I think if I were to come across it, I won't be as scared of it anymore either. Thanks for the inspo girl. Looking as fierce and fabulous as ever.

  41. You look stunning in green! :) I love this outfit both ways.

    I find green a really tricky colour to wear, but I've been trying to add more of it into my wardrobe lately :)

    Hope that you had a great weekend! We had a nice and relaxing one here, which was lovely.
