Instant Outfit: Neon

One of my favorite trends is still neon. (Last fall I told you why, here.) If you are looking for a wardrobe update, the unexpected and playful/edgy pop of color paired with the neutral clothing that already sits in your closet is a no-brainer.

Neon accessories make a stylish statement and look great with the following colors: black, grey, navy blue, beige, ivory, and white. (Brown is very tricky, so best to avoid that one here.) All of these colors should make up your wardrobe foundation, so it is a trend easily achievable by the addition of accessories. Or in this case, shoes. It's also appropriate for all ages.

Basic Equation:
Neutral Head-to-Toe + Neutral Handbag + Fabulous Neon Shoes = Instant Outfit

*Bonus Points For Your Look: Monochromatic is always chic.

Bottom Line:
Get yourself a pair of neon shoes. They are just what you need to update your same old looks. Here are my three neon shoe highlights (pun intended):

1) Laser cut ballerinas for work or play.

2) These stunning Prada peep-toes for nights and weekends:

{Prada Patent Leather Peep Toe, $720.}

3) Wear-me-all-summer sandals.

{Belle Sigerson Morrison, Randy Patent Leather Sandals, $175.}

Your Instant Outfit Review:
Choose a neutral- colored dress, or blouse and pant in the same hue, add a pair of these neon shoes and head out the door!

*Thoughtful Touches For Your Look: Add a simple pair of earrings and a ring OR a simple necklace. 

*Bonus Points For Your Look: Wear two neon items at the same time. (Neon Shoes + Neon Blouse, Neon Shoes + Neon Handbag, Neon Shoes + Neon Nail Polish, etc. )
