Color makes you look alive, and if you are wearing neon, electric! Take a look at how these over 40 style bloggers rock this summer’s neon trend.

Neon with an Urban Vibe

Carmen is a 50+ style blogger who wanted an outfit that would do double for her trip to New York City. It had to be casual but a little trendy, and  it had to be versatile enough to  style a few different ways. These neon yellow jeans and t-shirt worn with a black vest and shoes fit the bill.

This is a look with stand-out style. It’s got a cool, urban vibe and she can mix and match pieces, which means it helps to cut down on her packing.

Elegant Neon

Today’s neon looks are a far cry from the neon punk rock looks of the 80s.  Neon can be unexpectedly elegant and classy.

Annette proves that in this striking, neon orange wrap dress that works well with her warm skin tone. Subtle accessories and nude shoes balance out the strong hue. To see more of  Annette’s elegant personal style check out her blog Lady of Style.

Creative Neon

If you aren’t ready to dive into neon, you can get your feet wet slowly by adding a neon accessory to a neutral outfit. In this case Trina has gone one step further and paired some funky, acid yellow heels with bright, cobalt blue pants for a look that is creative and dramatic. If neon shoes are not your style, you might try a bag or scarf in a neon shade. To see more of Trina’s fun and colorful style visit her blog Tea Time with Trina.

    Carmen: Neon may be unexpectedly elegant and classy BUT you are simply always elegant and classy. You emit a radiance with your cheerful countenance that brightens everybody’s day.
