How To Wear Neon Lingerie, The New Trend You Need To Try

Share

It's easy to spot trends when it comes to shoes, bags, or sunglasses; just take a scroll through the latest runway shows or your Instagram feed. The lingerie trend cycle, however, can be more of a challenge to pin down. Often, you can't really see exactly which pieces other people throw on under their clothes. But given the fact that anything neon is hard to miss, I can confirm that trendsetters have added bold, colorful bras into their lingerie rotations. Loud colors — from safety-cone orange to acid green — are primed to be a major trend for fall, so much so that even undergarments are undergoing a total refresh.

Sure, high-saturation lingerie may not be office appropriate, but for the right occasion, revealing a flash of bright orange or pink is a fun way to add color to your look. Neon can be commanding (like when it's styled under a sheer top), but it can be a bit more subtle, like when it barely peeks through a cotton button-down or a crisp tee. So, it's up to you to calibrate your own level of comfort, whether your foray into bright bras and bralettes is something you keep precious or show off with confidence. Either way, there's something energizing about swapping out your usual nude bra for something that packs a bit more of a punch.

If you're in need of a little extra styling inspiration, channel designers like Prabal Gurung and No. 21 who layer colorful sheer dresses and separates over coordinated underwear. Or for a take inspired by street style, try going sans-shirt and pairing your bra with a relaxed blazer. Shop some style options below.

Antonia Bralette

Araks

Grab a classic white button-down and throw it over this sheer bralette. The yellow will just barely peek through.

Apricot Bra

Pansy

Not only is this cotton bra eye-catching, it's comfortable enough to wear all day.

Columbia Road Bra

Myla

Swap your nude bra out for electric blue instead, then try throwing on a graphic tee or a black slip dress.

Kaylie Bra

Agent Provocateur

Neon yellow may seem like an intimidating choice, but this bright hue looks great on most skin tones.

Swiss Dot Bra

Madewell

For a more subdued take on the trend (ok, ok, neon isn't for everyone), this sweet bralette is an easy choice.

Bralette

Cosabella

Cosabella's lacy bralettes come in every color you can imagine, but this energizing green is gorgeous.

Soft-Cup Bra

Calvin Klein Underwear

A pop of orange would look good styled with a sheer top in tan or brown, or maybe even with leopard print.

Contour Bra

Addition Elle

A two-tone bra is a great entryway into bolder hues. Since the bright color is pared down with a softer pastel, it doesn't feel quite as loud.

Point Desprit Bra

J.Crew

Style this simple, sheer bra with anything black layered on top.

Ophelia Bra

Skin

This bra may be too sheer to wear with a top that's completely see-through, too, but it works perfectly with a light cotton that just let's a bit of color show from underneath.

Bell Velour Pants

Baserange

Underwear that's both comfy and cute.

James Bra

Fleur du Mal

For nighttime, consider styling this bra with a half-buttoned top.

Beatrice Bralette

Araks

A soft-cup bralette looks great under a simple tee.

Sandrine Bra

Parfait

Consider styling this bright pink bra with a v-neck top.

Lulu Underwire Bra

Lonely

Unique details make this bra fun to show off.

Le Marais Bikini

Chantelle

These lacy briefs are a fun pop of color.

Rihanna Bra

City Chic

If fuschia is your thing, this bra is for you.

Havana Bralette

For Love and Lemons

Ruffly straps make this bra ideal for styling with a simple tank.
