Need some Neon (Outfit of the Day)

I am L-O-V-I-N-G the neon craze that is sparking through the world of fashion this summer. Not so convinced this trend is for you? That's cool...skip buying the lime green body-con skirt or the hot pink espadrilles. There are plenty of ways to dip your toe into this trend without having to actually jump in the water.

-Try a neon purple or pink lipstick. Seriously, if you haven't tried this yet, you really should. But don't dish out $18 to buy a high-end brand that you might end up never wearing. Go for the cheapies! One of my first blogs ever was about this fuschia lipstick that I bought for $2. See the post here.

-If you're really scared of this trend, your best bet is probably to try some nail polish. Hot pink, shocking blue, lime green, orange, or even yellow! See my post about my favorite neon polish here.

-A neon belt is another idea. It adds a pop of color without being overwhelming. I found a great one here.

-Jewelry of course, is another way to go. Bring a white tee to life with a neon beaded necklace. Or for a more playful twist, try a neon watch. I love this one at American Apparel. (and it's vintage!)

-If you're a sneaker fan, or just like to wear them for comfort, you can try this too-replace your white laces with some neon ones! I bought some hot pink ones to amp up my white and pink Nike classics, and I've had a lot of fun with them-I really wish I had thought of it sooner. I got my laces at Hibbett Sports, a local sport store, but if you google neon laces you can find a ton online.
 And then I made an outfit around my rockin' 'new' shoes!!
