Neons is a fun trend for this S/S season. I had so many email requests about how-to, I decided to make tutorial series.

Part one. Neon Accessories. 

Accessorizing is probably the easiest, safest and best for your $$$ way to update ANY wardrobe to a current trend. It does not take much of a change, yet it shoes that you are in tune with today's world, which is a must when you are a professional - whether a teacher or a fashion magazine editor, it will boost your confidence and radiate to others. 

Look 1. Modern.

A little "it-of-the-moment" on your wrist, a touch of color on your earlobes, and a clutch with a cleverly positioned color strip are all simple, clean and cutting edge modern.

Look 2. Color Family.

 Matching colors identically can be such a headache. Besides, staying within the same color family adds more interest to an outfit and spares the strangers eyes ( with this much neon all over the streets , it CAN be catchy...)

Look 3. Pattern Play.

Different enough to be interesting, but not too crazy to be tasteless , pattern mixing is THE thing to try for a weekend or a casual Friday.

Look 4. Color Blocking.

 Color Blocking is a wonderful trend, that takes its well deserved permanent place in fashion classics. Easy to adopt to a current staple ( just go for plain bright accessories), and ANY plain outfit is transformed in seconds. Try all white, gray or a mix of neutrals for the summer. Color Blocking on basic colors can take you anywhere - from office to a date night to a party or a club. Sky is the limit.
