Neon Brights: Let them Light up Your Look

The trend for neon color in clothing and accessories has been out as long as color blocking itself has. I like them both. When I first saw glimpses of neon on the fashion scene, I thought that there was no way I could use them. But, as usual, being wrong about something opens the door to something new and wonderful. If you are turned off by adding neon to your wardrobe, then gather your courage and your fashion sense and take a little tour of neon with me…

For the timid, try adding neon in some smaller accessories:


I wouldn’t start out using it more than once in an outfit as Chiara has done here. Maybe choose a smaller purse or go for the shoe accents. This girl is a fashion icon herself with her own line of Italian shoes. She can pull off anything!

Iphone covers are like earrings for your phone. why not add a pop of neon there:

Flats are making big statements today. Dark denim makes the perfect foil for these brights. How about sunglasses or a thin belt?

  1. “Iphone covers are like earrings for your phone.” Greatest sentence I’ve ever read. Also, loved how you used a picture from PP and the J. Crew coat (that I’ve totally been coveting for a good month!).
