6 Ways To Try A Tricky Trend: Neon

When a particular color or style becomes popular, it can sometimes be scary to jump on board right away. For me, neon fits into that category. I love the idea of incorporating the bright hues into my wardrobe, but definitely want to avoid looking like a highlighter!

Here are six easy ways to incorporate the trend into your outfit without spending a fortune or standing out too much.

    Bright nails are a great way to add a little neon to your look. And when you only have to spend a few dollars for a bottle, it's an easy investment.

    Find more neon colors at American Apparel for $6.00 each.

  • Bright Bags. 3 of 7

    If you want a non-committal neon piece, try a small handbag. Since you'll only be carrying it for part of the day, you'll be able to ease into the look a little more easily.

    Find this one at Questhaven Fashions for $14.70.

  • Bright Belts. 4 of 7

    Adding a neon skinny belt is a perfect way to add a little pop to an outfit. Pair it with a patterned top or dress to tone down the brightness, or with all black to really make a statement!

    Find this belt at Target for $10.39 (on sale!)

  • Neon Accessories. 5 of 7

    Neon jewelry is the perfect way to incorporate a little bit of bright color into your outfit. The neon jewels in this bracelet are an unexpected pop to a classic gold bracelet.

  • Neon Shoes. 6 of 7

    I picked up my first pair of neon yellow shoes a few months ago and although I was scared of them at first, I've found that they go with practically everything. And they're sure to add a little pep to your step!

    Find these at Target for $29.99.

  • Bright Clothing Details. 7 of 7

    Tops that are entirely neon can be a little loud, but adding a little neon detailing adds some fun interest to a otherwise simple top. 

    Find it at Daisy Rae Boutique for $39.00.
