The neon trend is huge this season, so why not try it out in a super cute, super affordable way? This neon pink skirt from Papaya is only $5.99 – yes, you read that right – so go snag it and check out these three totally unique ways to rock it!

Outfit Inspiration

Below, I’ve done three completely different takes on this skirt – two casual and one night-out-worthy – to get your inspiration going. Check them out!

Outfit 1

This look is the ultimate spring-summer ensemble – with its pretty, warm colors and laid-back feel, it’d be perfect for a day spent out in the sun. I gave the skirt a casual feel here by pairing it with a loose-fitting graphic tee and a pair of leather sandals. The orange-y bag complements the tee nicely and the retro-inspired sunglasses keep your eyes protected in style!

Outfit 2

This look is a bit more polished than the first, but still just as casual and comfortable. Mint green is huge this season, so I chose to pair a subtle mint-colored tee with the skirt. Sleek black leather sandals add a punch of boldness to the look while a hammered silver necklace and classic black wayfarers finish off the ensemble in a sleek, trendy way.

Outfit 3

This outfit, if I do say so myself, is the BOMB. Nothing says “LOOK AT ME” like wearing a pop of neon… so, with that being said, why not rock TWO pops of neon? This time, I paired the skirt with a simple black tee and this amazing pair of neon wedges. A chained collar necklace makes an equally bold statement, while a simple black clutch ties the look together.

    I agree Chloe… I wish it was slightly longer as well because each of these outfits is fantastic. I love the simplicity but stylishness of each!

    To me, it looks exactly like $5.99. Too short, too tight, too everything. Wouldn’t feel comfortable nor nice in it.

    I like the skirt! I have something similar in black and I can combine it with almost everything in my wardrobe to create a different look each time.

    The 90’s are here with a vengeance!:) My favorite thing here are those green wedges *sigh* and the peach bag. They look like they’d feel good if you touched them. Anyway, the skirt is a great purchase for spring and summer for that price!

    Sometimes your links don’t work, like the sandals mentioned earlier and the sunglasses on Outfit #1. But I reeeally like them where are they from so I can look them up??

    RayLauren – Sorry about that – pretty sure the Forever 21 sandals are sold out, but the link for the 1st sunglasses works fine on my end – what are you seeing when you click it? Want to diagnose the problem. BTW, they’re from 80s Purple and are available here.
