When it comes to controversial trends, neon's at the top of the list. But despite its infamous past, we've recently been seeing the reflective color scheme in a new, gentler light. Among other kitschy trends, from beaded bags to cowrie shell jewelry, neon has found a way to shed its tacky history and take on a more sophisticated approach (thanks for the kick in the butt, Kim). And since we now have the (slime) green light to tackle our spring wardrobes, we're keen to get this reinvented color-way off our warm-weather inspo boards and into our closets.
But one question still remains: how on earth do you style it? Sure, Instagram makes it look so easy, but when it comes to doing it IRL, mastering neon is hardly 1 + 2 = 3. So to help you tackle what's shaping up to be spring's biggest color trend, we went straight to the source: Instagram. Ahead, check out our favorite brighter-than-bright looks (and some shoppable options to match) that'll make figuring out just how to wear neon this spring and summer easier than ever before.
