If having neon in your wardrobe is new to you, beginning with a cardigan, purse, or shoe can help you get accustomed to the bright life. And wearing denim shorts will give you an oh-so-80’s look. Ready to highlight your curves? Neon jeans (especially in pink, blue, and green) are hot right now. And if you really want to light up the night, wearing a neon dress is sure to get you noticed when you hit the town. To keep things chic and understated, pair your neon separates with neutrals like tan or grey. But if you dare to go there, color blocking can be a great way to be the brightest young thing in the room. Check out the pictures below for peices you can add to your closet today!
