I’m a fan of fashion’s recent neon movement, but I admit it took some warming up to. Too often, it’s overdone. And where neon is concerned, there definitely can be too much of a good thing.

So how does one tap this new trend without it looking like you fell out of the early 90’s? Think about the pops of colour being a surprise – as accents rather than focal points – because when paired with lots of chic, light neutrals, neons are just shocking…in the best possible way!
