trend tuesday: crazy for neon

Bold and bright, neon is definitely a way to get noticed this summer. It's a trend we love, but if not done carefully, you could look like you are ready to "Sweat to the Oldies" with Richard Simmons. Here are our dos and don'ts for keeping you electrifyingly hot instead of an 80s has-been not.

Do incorporate neon through belts, necklaces, bracelets, and shoes (but not all at once).
Don't wear cheap neon sunglasses.

Do wear one single neon focal piece (a top or pants).
Don't color block in neon.

Do pair neons with neutral colors or classic patterns (nude shoes, a striped top, etc.).
Don't pair neon with acid-washed jeans.

Do have fun with it!
Don't resurrect 99 percent of your old 80s garb—though the trend is the same, cuts and styles have

 Do pair your neutrals with a pop of neon in a shoe. 

Don't make it too retro or go head-to-toe overboard. One neon focal point is enough, Katy!

What is your favorite way to wear neon this summer?
