Like crop tops or cut-offs, certain trends feel like they're designated for those aged a number that ends with -teen. And that's exactly how we feel about neon. One thought of the word and we're transported to our days at Electric Daisy Carnival, wearing short-shorts, bikini tops, a whole lot of glitter. Cringe. But this summer is proving that neon isn't just reserved for raving. In fact, it can be done in a way that feels the exact opposite.
Here's how: 1) Steer clear of spandex and opt for linen or silk. 2) Move away from catsuits and stick to flowing dresses and high-waisted jeans. When you're mindful of silhouette, it lets the color do all the talking. And whether you embrace it head-to-toe or ease into the trend with a bold accessory, neons are the perfect way to give a little color a try before we accidentally end up wearing grays and blacks all fall and winter long.
