Bright colors were a huge presence on Spring/Summer 2011 runways and is there any other way to ring in warm weather than with blinding neons?  We think not.  On the other hand, tans, creams, and whites are also huge high temp hits which causes quite the dilemma…neon or neutral?  The chic and obvious solution: combine them!  Neons and neutrals make a perfect combo and will have you in the sartorial spotlight all summer.  Try pairing your brightest blues, oranges, or pinks with the perfect tan skirt or white denim for an eye-popping effect.  Spice up any pastel outfit with the most to-die-for neon clutch.  No matter how you choose to pair your neons with your neutrals, you’re bound for major fashion win.  Oh, and if you’re planning on trying this trend, we do strongly advise wearing a good pair of sunnies!

For that futuristic wow-factor, nothing really beats neon. Perfect for nights out but also as day wear, designers went bold and bright in a rainbow of electric hues.

A fresh way to wear neon is in one bold swatch as seen above. Of course, neon accessories can take any outfit from drab to club-kid party-ready. So pick a color that looks great on you, and turn it up in a neon.

One caveat is to keep the look modern, keep the lines clean. With a bold statement such as neon there’s no need to add glitter and frills to the piece. Although, I will confess, I’m loving a neon mixed with the tutti-frutti patterns or polka dots for an eccentric look.
