There are neon colors splattered all over the place right now. My knee-jerk reaction was to write them off, probably because I have childhood memories of a wearing a crazy neon-blue short and tee set ... and scrunchie socks (and the unfortunate photos to prove it). As with any wild trend, I figured these things were better left in the past.
But then I started to see that it looked good if one wore neon sparingly. Imagine that. No need to plaster yourself in head-to-toe nuclear orange. How about a light coral or lime green pair of shoes? Or yellow cropped pants?
I fully endorse this watered-down neon trend. Just keep the rest of the outfit simple, and you will look like 2012, not 1990.
