Flashy neon colours and prints
To spice things up a bit, add a dash of outrageously vibrant neon colours like fluorescent and orange to your otherwise ordinary outfit, or maybe experiment with the many patters such as cheetah prints, zebra stripes, khaki patterns and monochrome?
A sure shot formula for making heads turn! Just ensure that all other aspects of your look are minimal.
Neon coloured shorts, skirts, crocs, tops and leggings are an absolute rage in contemporary fashion.
Funky crop tops
