Neon is very hot this season. But can you wear neon over 50? I have never been a very big fan of it. Yes I am the age that I see this trend for the umpteenth time. When you’re over 50 you have seen all the trends before, lol! But as with so many trends, I have to get used to it and in the end I often like it. Usually when the trend is long past. Haha, really bad for a fashion blogger. Well, I don’t see myself as a fashion blogger but as a personal style blogger. And in that capacity I can wear what I want on my blog.
Can you wear neon when over 50?
Hell yeah! You can wear almost anything when you’re over 50. Because our self confidence grows with our age, and with self confidence you can wear anything! But do it with style and keep it classy is my advice.
So neon. I wanted a pink sweater to wear on a red skirt for those chilly spring days. Or cooler summer evenings. This one I picked because I like the open knit. A rather thick sweater, but a spring sweater because of those little holes. Also ideal to wear over a shirt dress!
And say it yourself, if you want a pink sweater, well this one is very pink, can it get any more pink! I started the post with that I’m not so much of the neon, but what about these boots! Wow, two neon pieces in one outfit! This color combination is inspired by Gail who often wears green and regularly combines it with pink.
How to style neon pink
You’ve seen the skirt before, bought when I went shopping with my sister. It’s a very simple one, but because it has pockets it gives the skirt something cool iness. Very casual. And the boots are the same as these yellow ones! Aren’t they both gorgeous? And now I did see the perfect golden ankle boots online! The problem is that I will not wear them this coming season. But I want golden ankle boots for such a long time. Shall I order them? I am wearing simple green earrings and a bit of a neon green statement ring for accessories. Are you in for the neon trend?

Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.
I would love it if you could follow me on Instagram!
Wow they look great together with pink. You look amazing Nancy, as ever ??
Oh thanks Tina! Have a great sunny day!
I agree, with confidence and class we can wear what we want! Those green neon boots are so much fun and look terrific on you Nancy!
Thank you very much Kellyann!
This looks amazing! I think part of it is your choice of skrit: the colors are bold and the skirt ties them together with its classic shape and print. Well done!
Neon reminds me always of neon lights and visiting a neon light making factory in middle school in France: our class made a documentary and we one 2nd place in a contest with it: the prize was a class trip to Poitiers and going to this cool place called Futuroscope which had 3D movie theater, 180 degree theater… Fun memories!
Oh how good! Funny that that future is now!
Love the colour combo! The pink jumper is so cute and neon green boots are fab!
Well, certainly you can! It’s just a matter of balance. We won’t be wearing full-on neon now, will we? Not that I ever wore full-on neon, mind you ;-)) I think your outfit is perfectly balanced, and I’m absolutely loving that pink jumper! xxx
Thanks Ann, I love it too, also wore it on a bright red skirt!
So pink its…PANK??? I think I would call this PANK, Nancy! I love neon, going back to a neon green scarf of my mom’s from the 60s, which I wore when it first revived in 1983-4. I’ve seen neon come and go so many times, I just don’t care if it’s a trend or not! Love it! You look spectacular!
Thank you very much Sheila!
Outfit is echt super leuk! Staat je goed!
This is a fun look, Nancy. I’m not sure how I feel about neon right now, haha! I’m like you, sometimes after I see it awhile, I decide I *need* it!
Haha, yes I know exactly what you mean!
I’m with you Nancy. Let’s have fun and wear whatever we want. Those rules are so silly most times, and color should be our friends. The brighter the better I always say.
Nancy, the look is stunning. I really like the combination of colors, sweater, skirt and boots.
that neon pink knit is such a good colour on you! I love the bright shade! 🙂 I don’t have a lot of neon pieces in my wardrobe, but I do love neon accessories and they get a lot of wear! 🙂 I agree, we should wear what we like on our blogs! 🙂
Hope that your week is going well 🙂
Not only on our blogs! IRL, haha. Thanks Mica!
the colors are so much fun!
i was inspired by you and some other bloggers, and finally posted my first fashion post! I’d be honored to have you check it out and let me know what you think! it’s a Refashion of of a long sleeveless dress into a Puffy Sleeve Blouse!…can i leave a link here? or email it to you?
I saw it on your blog, no on Facebook! I think its amazing, it’s a fabulous top! How creative.
Very daring dear! I love how you experiment with so many different styles and you know what: you get away with it too. You self-confidence makes sure you wear everything with style and that simply shows!
Oh what a fabulous compliment!It makes me smile, thank you very much Lieske.
Great colours! I remember wearing mismatched neon socks in the 80s to the school disco…everything comes around again!
Oh yeah! Haha, that we liked that!
This such a fabulous and fun outfit, Nancy! I’m a big fan of pink and green. The booties are divine!
I say go for it and this outfit is so perfect. I just love that pink sweater and those cheerful neon booties! So fun!
I love these bold colors Nancy! Those boots are amazing.
Nancy, I love this outfit and I am not a huge fan of neon either! I didn’t love it in the 80’s and 90’s and I don’t love it now, but I love these boots and sweater and the gorgeous combination you created with them! I think I could totally get on board with some neon shoes. And I also think you need those golden ankle boots!
Haha, thanks Shelbee!
Ha ha! So true, when we’re over 50 we’ve seen all the styles before. Your sweater is beautiful and looks great with green, I like neon pink and once had a neon pink skirt.
I don’t have any neon, but this looks fab on you! I love the chunky sweater and pink color. The bots are great
Hope you are having a great weekend!
One to get noticed in Nancy, and noticed you will be! Thanks for sharing your wonderful look. Jacqui x
Thank you very much Jacqui!
