Neon gets a bad rap. When I think of the color, I immediately envision a horrible ’80s outfit. But this spring, there are a lot of work appropriate neon options–check out spring’s friendliest neon accessories–and we think it’s time to embrace the color, in small doses of course.
Get the look right by anchoring the bright color with neutrals like khaki or white. Try to stay away from pairing neon with black because it looks too harsh, and you can run the risk of looking like a club raver. Adding on other neon accessories like a bangle or a scarf is okay, but don’t go overboard.
I love the tiny ruffles on this J. Crew Cotton silk streamers cami ($110.00). The neon pink color is bright, but not overbearing like highlighter yellow or green.
Wearing neon with white makes the color pop even more, and this denim Lauren by Ralph Lauren Gelsey Skirt ($69.50) will do exactly that.
A structured blazer over the top is a good choice, and this Old Navy One Button Khaki Blazer ($39.50) will anchor the bright color, and it will add shape to the top.
Wearing another neon piece like these Alexis Bittar Lucite Bangles ($55 each) is okay because they are not overwhelming.
The color of your shoes should be neutral like these Franco Sarto “Hydra” Knotted High Heel Sandals ($89.00). The leather knot detail on the shoe makes them stand out.
