Trend alert: Bright is back

Neon brights are back in a big way and poised to become one of this summer’s hottest trends. From lips to eyes to nails, we’ve been seeing day-glo glam everywhere, and now this eye-catching color trend is making its way to clothing and accessories. Get your fill of fluorescents with these hot summer looks.

Neon
1Neon abstract

If you're going to wear neon, go subtle rather than all-over day-glo. This high-waisted neon print skirt (Delia's, $35) is a flirty, fun addition to your summer wardrobe. Basic black is covered in abstract swaths of bright yellow, orange, pink and blue.

Neon shades

Sunglasses need not be boring. Go bold with these '80s-inspired neon sunglasses (Urban Outfitters, $10) with bright pink frames and yellow arms. They also come with purple frames and orange arms so you can always get both pairs to add variety.

3Neon belt

Prepare to get noticed in this blinding Jil Sander belt in an electric shade of orange (Net-a-Porter.com, $175). The PVC belt is an on-trend way to perk up a neutral outfit and a good way to wear neon without going over the top. We suggest using this piece to add a pop of color to a basic black dress.

4Neon heels

We're going gaga for day-glo in these vibrant, open-toe platform heels (Mod Cloth, $90) in a punchy shade of pink. Not only will these bright beauties add some pep to your step -- they'll give your summer style a serious dose of color.

5Neon clutch

It's not every day that a clutch this cute comes along -- and in an electric shade of blue, no less. We'll be adding some much-needed neon to our roster of summer purses with this Vivienne Westwood color block clutch (Zappos Couture, $500).

6Neon tank

Nothing says summer like a super-soft, go-anywhere tank top you can throw on with cutoffs. Make it neon, and you've got yourself a sale. We're loving this semi-sheer neon tank (Urban Outfitters, $34) with drapey fit and scoop neck that's perfect for when the humidity really hits.

7Neon frock

An easy, breezy summer dress you can wear from the office to a patio party is essential. You won't be disappointed with this silk Rebecca Taylor cami dress (Revolve Clothing, $283) in neon pink. We love the halter neck, front pockets and, of course, the hot hue.

8Neon timepiece

You might need sunglasses when you check the time on this oh-so-bright green watch (Endless.com, $150). Sport this '80s-inspired accessory when you feel like having fun with your look or if you need to spice up basic black or another neutral ensemble.
