I am a child of the eighties so hyper-color shirts, neon snap bracelets, and lime glow-in-the dark hoop earrings were once some of my coveted fashion possessions. I wish I could say I walked around giving looks of disdain a la Suri to my peers for their questionable taste, but instead I embraced them. I’m not proud of it, and for some reason I just can’t shake my love of these blinding neon hues (Thankfully, I don’t have the same nostalgic feelings for big hair or perms!).  The neon trend has taken over, and I especially love when the bright hues are paired with neutrals. Greys, camel, and beige look phenomenal with lime, hot pink, and yellow. Some of my favorite neon pieces can be found below:

    Love the bright colors! I love the idea of classic neutrals with an accent color. I love the belt and scarf, great color on you!
