Go Bright Or Go Home: 5 Ways To Work Neon Into Your Summer Wardrobe
Move over pastel, neon is this summer’s palette of choice.
From the runways of New York to Milan, neon pieces have been brightening up simple looks or making statements with neon-on-neon layering. But for those of us who don’t look as good in head-to-toe shades of highligher, we’ve collected a plethora of neon belts, skirts, jewelry, shoes, and bags to keep you looking chic without looking like you had an unfortunate run-in with a
Spacemaker during finals week.
Take a look at our colorful collection below. Will you try this trend?
Time to get your sunnies out -- it's about to get really bright...
