Get Your Neon On


Once again neon is a big trend this summer (and one that I think will carry into the fall). But what to do if you’re not quite ready to embrace it (and potentially the 80s)? Adding hints of neon, like I’ve done here with a shell layered under a sheer tank top and some bright orange nail polish, can be a great way to incorporate a little neon into your look without going full on dayglo.

Hey :)

Neon is a trend that seriously intimidates me. I always feel like it is hard to wear without looking cheap, tacky or childish but then see others do it so well! I guess, maybe I will try some bright nail polish like you have done here. Brightens up an outfit and is on trend which is perfect!

Great post :)

Love this, that's a great way to get neon into a look...It's what I would have to do, I'm not confident enough to wear full on neon, ha ha

Love the way your neon is peeking out beneath that sheer top and your nail polish color is so great!

I have loved the neon trend this Spring/Summer but it has been a little harder for me to feel comfortable in neon than I originally thought it would be so I've mostly been sticking to small pops of it too. I love your nail polish.

Love the bright orange nails! And I think I'm going to have to go to Spring for those shoes, they look so comfortable, they'd be perfect for me for work. Did you get them recently?

PS Thanks for your vote! xo

I love neons, have no problem, sometimes I have to 'tone down' myself.
Adoring your wedges, your pants, your nails .... everything.

Great way to incorporate neon in an outfit. Definitely do-able for someone like me. I have done the neon nails and I must say I like it...I might venture into getting a clothing piece like a top...maybe to add to my closet. And still reeling over what you said in my post.. 6months or once a year?? I can't even go a day without thinking about it!! (people are probably reading thing and are thinking "wth?")

I like neon, but for some reason it reminds me too much of elementary school to wear myself. I like that top!

I don't like neon at all. I think they're the best colors for highlighters and nothing else. BUT I dig the bits you've added to this outfit! especially the neon cami/tank!
