I love neon and it is definitely one of my favorite trends for spring and summer. But, how can you incorporate it into your wardrobe without looking like a giant highlighter? There is a fine line between bright-chic and night-freak; you don’t want to be mistaken for a 1980’s streetwalker! Here are my top picks under $50 on how to combine the neon trends with your everyday wardrobe.

1. Small investment, big impact- the beauty aisle. For under $10, you can get a great pop of neon on your nails, lips, or eyes. Not only will a bright blue liner compliment any color eyes, but a pink pout, or an electric nail can give you the look, without breaking the bank or having to commit on a piece.

2. Jewelry. Adding a neon necklace, earrings, or bracelet, can transform your ordinary LBD. Pairing a nude with a neon piece is my favorite way to showcase the color.

3. A bag. I love a neon crossbody with something as simple as a white tee and jeans. It really takes your outfit somewhere that a basic brown bag just can’t take you.

How do you sport your neon?
