Liven Up Your Look

What better time than summer to go bold and show off your vibrant side with this season’s must-have color palette: neon. We show you some of the most fun and fashionable ways to wear neon from head to toe (although maybe not all at the same time).

pair of sandals

On your feet

The first thing we said when we spied this adorable pair of sandals with a splash of neon yellow was, “yes, please,” and we’re willing to bet you’ll do the same (, $25). The price is perfect for an end-of-summer purchase and we’ll be getting as much wear out of these as we can before the weather turns cold.

eye-catching pink bangle

On your wrist

Add a pretty pop of bold color to any outfit with this eye-catching pink bangle made from enameled brass (, $28). Use one or two to punch up the fun-factor on a more neutral outfit, or even wear one to complement other bright colors if you really want to get noticed.

electric green neon earrings

In your ears

Add a serious dose of color to whatever you have on once you don this pair of electric green neon earrings (, $22). We love how the faux teardrop stones stand out against the gold plated frames to create the ultimate get-noticed accessory.

ultra-stylish straw fedora

On your head

Protect your head from the sun while also looking fabulous with this ultra-stylish straw fedora featuring a vibrant neon orange band (, $139). Wear this urban-chic piece with your favorite cut-offs, strappy sandals and fitted T-shirt for casual but chic summer style.

Rebecca Minkoff neon clutch

On your arm

Your accessory choice is bound to turn heads if you step out with this killer Rebecca Minkoff neon clutch on your arm (, $195). The compact clutch may be small, but it’s packed with multiple pockets (for all your essentials) and comes with an adjustable chain strap depending on how you want to wear it. Plus the pop of bright orange steals the show.

Sephora by OPI neon lights mini set

On your nails

Neon nails are not only fun and flirty, but they’re perfectly on trend for summer. Paint your fingers and toes in a get-noticed shade as a playful nod to any outfit. We’re partial to the Sephora by OPI neon lights mini set (, $25), featuring four mini-size brights, plus a base coat and top coat.

I am really loving the neon trend but in small doses. I think a splash of neon with a neutral brings interest to any outfit.

Really loving the jewelry you picked out for this piece. Both the earrings and the bangle are great finds. I also love the thought of having neon fingers and toes! So summery and so fun for sure.

I am a huge fan of the neon trend this season. I also love pairing a lot of neon with nude to sort of balance out the shock factor of neons.

I love those neon sandals. They are the perfect amount of bright color and neutral sandal. They can be worn in so many different ways and that makes them a perfect summer buy!
