Mode Plus: Neon for Beginners

Thought Neon was a 80′s and 90′s fashion faux pas, guess again?!A few years back we saw hints of neon hitting the runways, from citrine yellow cocktails dresses to colorblocking neon pinks and purples. And when designers like Jason Wu introduced a full on neon look this Spring, I will not lie I became worried. Was fashion pulling a Zack Morris – A.C. Slater on us? Neon is back and yes in all it’s glory but with much more sophistication. Still recovering from the neon friendship cord bracelets – remember those – or even worse, neon spandex/leotards/any thing really, I wasn’t sure I could pull off a complete neon look. Not one to back down from any fashion challenge, I decided to let neon back in my closet. The most easy way for me to incorporate a trend I’m hesitant about, is by adding accessory pieces. That can vary from statement jewelry to bold nail polish or a lipstick color. This way I still get to experiment without taking big risks. I’m happy and my wallet thanks.How will you incorporate the neon trend in your closet?Neon Accessories van modeplus met cc skye jewelryColar Flores Necklace – oqvestir.brKnitted Jewelry – boticca.comGreen Leather Bag – BohemiaLime Green Jewelry – artfitshop.comEABURNS Leather Chain Necklace – boticca.comShopbop – Matthew Williamson Oversized Retro SunglassesTattoo Jewelry – gojane.comPink Leather Bag – BohemiaCC SKYE Leather Jewelry – oxygenboutique.comASOS – Pack of Three Neon Love RingsRiver Island Chuncky Jewelry – Riverisland.comToy Watch Yellow – jades24.comCC SKYE Leather Jewelry – oxygenboutique.comModcloth – Neon and On RingsBlu Bijoux Teardrop Earrings – maxandchloe.com Love the Mode Plus Picks?
