But there are a few potential style risks associated with such intense, fluorescent color. To be or not to be a piñata? It is all in the execution. Just don't pair neon brights with an extreme fake tan. And no neon lipstick -- it's too hard to pull off. Wear red or pink pouts for spring.
Accessories up the ante. Arm candy in vivid colors projects panache and polish. Start with a single color. Embrace your inner Popsicle and test the waters with splashes of neon bright nail polish and jewelry. Jelly bean-inspired colors in handbags add a burst of energy. Step out with Roy G. Biv in a rainbow confection of attention-drawing whimsy for the feet.
Crank up the color in art deco graphics of black and white. Love, love, love black and white with a snap of neon bright. Supersonic brightness adds ultra-punchy color -- street chic at its finest.
Pairing bold colors with white, black or navy makes an easy style equation. That LBD (little black dress) screams for neon color on the feet.
Any neon bright paired with other neon brights takes the style equation to a much higher level, but is a hothouse of on-trend fashion.
In high-spirited color, saturated by the high beams, one doesn't have to be a girlie girl to rock this trend. Not the least bit bashful, if it is done right, the riveting results are cool, not cute. A pop of attention-grabbing sass, neon brights are the perfect way to make your contemporaries neon green with envy.
Forget what you thought you knew about mixing hues. Go Kardashian in color. Wave glow sticks and color outside the border.
No tiptoeing through this bold, dazzling combination of power-packed neon brights. If the center of attention is not the goal, you'd better skip this trend of smashin' fashion.
