Ever see a trend and sigh in defeat? (see: Office Appropriate Nail Bling) Rocking a trend can be easy, affordable, and pretty awesome if you have the right guide.

I’ll admit to overdoing the neon trend, I used to rep for Lisa Frank back in the school yard. But lets keep the neon craziness for paint parties and EDC festivals. Avoid overdoing it by limiting yourself to wearing ONE bright accessory. I know its difficult but bear with me. Keep the rest of your outfit relatively neutral and accessorize with either a bag, sunglasses, a necklace, or even shoes. Here are some ideas:

I know pocketbooks are usually an investment, but think of it as one that will brighten up your day and your outfit! Store it away during the winter months and bring it back out with the sun in the summer time.

Pair these bright pumps with an LBD for an event. It’s the perfect accessory and will change the whole look of your outfit.

For those of us who don’t want to invest in shoes or a hand bag, go for shades! These sunglasses can be found literally ANYWHERE and come in a huge range of colors.

Jewelry is so easy to accessorize with. You can even buy inexpensive jewelry just in case you don’t love it (but we’re sure you will)

And lastly, nail polish! This is my favorite way to accessorize- the combinations are endless.

What’s your favorite neon trend?
