The neon trend kicked off when every editor under the sun was carrying their Cambridge Satchel Company electric messenger bag (you all know the one!). Now the trend has moved into hair accessories, nail polish, socks, shoes, you name it! As such, we have put together a must-have list of neon items that are all under $75. Why under $75? I believe that one should always splurge on classic pieces and go cheaper on trends (like neon, navajo, etc.). That being said, here are my picks:
Bottoms: Rag and Bone is making the hottest neon jeans out there (hands down) but I have to say TOPSHOP is coming in a close second and they are under $75! Also on the radar and currently in my closet are the Sparkle & Fade neon minis at Urban, they are amazingly flattering and perfect for summer!
Accessories: I absolutely love this Neon Box Chain Necklace from Forever 21 only $10 and these hot pink neon socks from Topshop would look adorable paired with a summer wedge! I love the combination of the clear crystals and the bright neon ribbon in this piece and one of my fav online jewelry shop’s, Bauble Bar, has some amazing pieces including these adorable neon studs! I am also a big fan of the neon bra trend (of course paired with a loose tank!). Lastly, a neon belt is a must have for the summer since it can add pop to any and all outfits.
Voila! You are all set! Nab a few of these neon items and you are sure to be on trend for the summer season!
