Easy Way to Update your Summer Outfit: Neon Tees

June 20, 2019

Need an easy, fun, and inexpensive way to add a little pop to your summer outfits? How about a neon t-shirt? 



I found this simple v-neck tee on sale at Gap and bought it in Lime Green and Hot Magenta.  I was a little disappointed that the colors didn’t pop as much in the photos as I think they do in person. 

I paired the tees with some classic basics that I think almost every wardrobe has: black pants, flat slides, and a denim jacket.  Also added a leopard belt for another bit of interest.  I thought that would make a nice casual work outfit. I would totally wear this for a day of teaching.

Then I put the pink tee with some raw edge cropped jeans, wedge sandals, and a fun summer tote for a casual weekend look.

A simple way to add a trend without a big investment, right?  What have you added to your summer wardrobe lately?

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!
