Three Ways: Neon Tank Top

Neon is a tricky hue to master. Known as "highlighter shades," neons are the brightest of the bright, which is probably why they're so difficult to style. In this Three Ways post, I'll show you how to master neon in one of its basic forms: the tank top.

Christopher Kane top

Christopher Kane neon jersey tank, $145

 Oasis coat, Pyramid Collection dress, Aymara socks, Madewell boots.

Why this outfit works: The neon orange works well with the color palette of the dress when layered underneath. A maroon military-style coat adds a cold-weather feel and thick knit socks and boots contrast the feminine dress while adding warmth.

Reiss blouse, J Brand velvet legging, Jeffrey Campbell booties, Noemi Klein studs, Amrita Singh bracelet.

Why this outfit works: Wear the tank top underneath a neutral blouse for a pop of color. The velvet leggings add an interesting texture contrast. Elegant gold earrings are feminine but subtle and a bracelet with navy stones pairs well with the leggings. Booties elevate the look to a new level of chicness.

JW Anderson leather jacket, blanknyc jeans, Forever 21 combat boots, Peter Lang necklace.

Why this outfit works: Orange and blue color block well, with a colorful necklace combining the shades. A tough leather jacket and combat boots add contrast.

Which of these outfits is your favorite? Let me know in the comment section! I'd also love to hear how you would wear this tank top.
