Black Light Party Outfits: A black-light party is a party where everyone is supposed to wear bright neon colors that reflect brightly under ultraviolet lighting. In simpler terms, it is a neon, glow-in-the-dark party. Since it takes place at night or in a relatively dark location, this party is perfect for wearing all types of neon dresses and clothes that may be considered “too much” on any other occasion.
Black light parties are becoming increasingly popular and a fun event that people look forward to especially to show off their cool clothing options. People have come up with the most creative things to wear to a neon-themed party without having to use childish props like glowsticks. Even if it is not the most classy or sophisticated outfit, it could be fun styling usual everyday clothes that are neon. Because after all, everything can work when it comes to a black light party!
How to Style Clothes for A Black Light Party
Although there is no specific dress code for black light parties, there is a general expectation for everyone to wear neon or bright colors that can reflect and glow in the UV light of the party. This can include anything and everything: from ribbed t-shirts to mini dresses to even cool and funky tops of all styles. Don’t own any neon tops? Instead, opt for some neon pants or leggings! There are a million different alternatives and you can opt for any cool option of clothing (to keep your signature style intact), all it needs to be is neon!
Styling Tips for Neon Outfits
- Do not feel pressured to do a head-to-toe neon look. It can be unrealistic for some people to come up with so many neon elements for a fully neon, bright outfit. So it is completely fine for just one element to be neon!
- Besides your main piece of clothing try to add another neon element as an accessory! It can be in the form of shoes or even a neon handbag but it will add that extra dimension to your look.
- Find alternatives to jeans! You can either find neon bottoms but something that is more commonly found are skirts, which are available in a wide range of neon colors.
- Mix and match with different colors in the same outfit. Yes, neon colors are loud and can clash, but tying two or three of them together in an outfit can work wonderfully for a black light party!
