How to Wear Neons: Part Two

On Monday, we started talking about the neon trend. Neon colors are seriously everywhere right now! Almost every store is full of neon accessories and clothing. How to Wear Neons: Part One featured neon accessories as a comfortable and subtle way to ease into the trend. For Part Two, we get a bit more adventurous with neon clothing!  So, how do we wear neon clothing without looking like a glo-stick?

1. Wear it with neutrals. Pick a neon top or bottom and keep everything else neutral.
It gives you an effortless look, but still captures the attention with the vibrant pop of color.

2. Try pairing neon with stripes. Simple black/white or navy/white stripes work best.
Keep the neon as the bold part of the outfit.

3. Be extra bold and try neon on neon. But, don't go too crazy.
Include something to break it up. Neon works well with denim or chambray.

I used to be afraid of color a few short years ago, so who would have ever thought I would be blogging about neons and LOVING it?  Whether you choose to just accent with neon accessories or go all out with neon on neon, just have fun with it!  I know I am!

What is your favorite piece of neon clothing? How do you style it?
