As the seasons change so does our wardrobe. During the chilly winter months we bundle up in our coziest black and gray sweaters, but once the temps rise it’s time to shed those layers and embrace some brighter, happier shades that remind us of sunny days.
This summer, celebrities have declared neon green as the color of the season (including one royal who’s known for wearing this shade quite often). The best part? You can wear this shade with anything. Stars have been pairing their best jeans with a neon green blazer or blouse. If you're more of an athleisure fan though, the neon green trend even works with a good pair of running sneakers or some of the best leggings.
If you’re in need of some style inspiration, just look to the stars for their use of the bright and bold shade. It’s truly making a statement this year—and we’re not complaining. Don't worry though, we also put some of our favorite picks below for you to check out too.
1. The Queen
You could argue the Queen originally started the neon green trend as she’s been sporting this style for years. Her favor towards the color is no coincidence; in the documentary The Queen at 90, her daughter-in-law, Sophie the Countess of Wessex, shared that the Queen chooses bright colors to notify people she’s there.
“She needs to stand out for people to be able to say, ‘I saw the Queen,’” the Countess said. “Don’t forget that when she turns up somewhere, the crowds are two, three, four… ten to fifteen deep, and someone wants to be able to say they saw a bit of the Queen’s hat as she went past.”
