Neon Clothing with Blacklight Effect

When it comes to a proper neon party, the glow effect is what counts: Neon clothing and decorations glow under blacklight, glow sticks shine on their own, and LED party items blink in neon colours. But beware: Not everything that looks "neon" in daylight will glow under UV light at the party. That's why we test all neon clothes and find the best accessories for your neon party!

Neon Clothing in Blacklight: Garments and Accessories that Glow in UV Light

Neon-coloured clothing and accessories are the absolute highlight at any party, especially when they glow in the dark. This magical glow effect (fluorescence) can be easily achieved with blacklight lamps in the party room.

Now, party guests can get creative and enhance their outfits with matching neon pieces. We showcase the most popular neon accessories and explain how to make your own neon clothing.

Neon Fishnet Gloves and Tutus

Neon fishnet gloves were very popular in the 80s and are making a comeback in the neon scene. They are made of stretchy net material that glows brightly under blacklight. They add a punky, rebellious touch to any outfit and are ideal for club nights or 80s themed parties. Neon tutu skirts are made from multiple layers of tulle in vibrant neon colours that glow intensely under UV light. Perfect for a dance party, festival, or carnival event.

DIY Tip: Want to make your own neon tutu? It's easy: Get some neon tulle and an elastic band for the waist. Cut the tulle into strips twice the length you want the tutu to be. Fold each strip in half and tie it onto the band by making a loop under the band and threading the ends through (this knots each strip onto the band). Repeat until the band is full. Wrap the band around your waist, and you have your own custom neon tutu!

Neon Braces and Neon Ties

These neon accessories are not only fashionable but also functional, bringing energy to any outfit. Neon braces are a great way to add a touch of retro charm to your outfit. They are practical, stylish, and the perfect mix of nostalgia and modern neon flair. They are ideal for 80s or 90s themed parties, perfectly complementing the outfit.

Neon ties are classic accessories reimagined. Whether at a business meeting or on the dance floor under blacklight, they draw attention. Both accessories offer a striking contrast to otherwise dark or neutral outfits and are excellent for blacklight theatre performances, where actors dress in dark clothes with only individual accessories glowing.

Neon Sweatbands, Headbands, and Leg Warmers

Neon sweatbands, headbands, and leg warmers bring back the spirit of the 80s fitness trend. They are essential accessories when dressing up for a fitness party or a retro run. Not only are they a colourful eye-catcher, but also functional.

Sweatbands and headbands keep hair out of your face and sweat off your forehead while adding glowing accents to your outfit. Leg warmers provide an extra pop of colour and emphasise the 80s character of the look.

These accessories pair well with other neon or fitness outfits like tight leggings, oversized T-shirts, or cool tracksuit jackets.

Make Your Own Neon Clothing

With neon tape, you can let your creativity run wild and design your own neon clothing. The high-adhesive fabric tape in bright neon colours like pink, orange, green, and yellow can be easily applied to fabrics such as T-shirts or trousers. Use it at full width (50 mm) or cut it into thin strips or other shapes with a craft knife. If you're in a hurry, you can also tear the tape into strips by hand.

A black outfit provides the perfect background to make the bright neon colours stand out. You can, for example, stick geometric patterns or stripes on a black T-shirt or trousers. Even writing or symbols are possible. With a bit of skill, you can create a unique piece that glows beautifully under blacklight.

But not only clothing can be customised this way; shoes, bags, or hats can also be transformed into glowing accessories with neon tape. This way, you can create an outfit that is sure to attract attention.
