As we sneak out of February and into the first days of spring, is color on your mind too?? If you’re like Karin and I, you are probably excited by color or as Karin put it “Rainbow anything”. I cannot agree more. Specifically, I’m loving the brighter neon highlighter hues. Maybe it’s the darker, shorter, grey days of winter that have me longing for color. Or watching various Fashion Weeks exploding in vibrant bright pallets. Regardless, I have already started shopping for some bright ways to incorporate this into my transition wardrobe for wear now ready inspiration.

If these brighter hues feel too bold for you, there are plenty of ways to incorporate this into your everyday ware without making quite as big a statement. From nails (more on that later), accessories, one bright item of clothing or a full outfit you can turn up or turn Ne-ON the volume as you so choose:

banana republic pants

Banana Republic Sloan Skinny Fit Pant ($89.50 – sale $60)
These pants not only fit great, but the heavier weight help them keep their shape and make them perfect to wear now. I’d pair them with a muted solid turtleneck now or with another bold solid shoulder bearing bright color into Spring.

George & Dino Bag

George & Dino Tank bag in Peacock ($225)
Born from the brilliant mind of my Fresh Style Partner, Karin Monfredo, her George & Dino bags are classic and cool. She transformed a purpose built custom bag into a chic durable carry-all with room to spare in style stopping eye catching neon to boot! These bags come in a variety of colors, so if this bold duo is too turned ne-ON, there are plenty of other color options to chose from.

Bralette Free People

Free People Adella Bralette ($38)
Slip into this Lipstick red bralette and enjoy the bright color all to yourself or if you feel like sharing, let it peek out of a loose sweater, buttoned up jacket, or sheer shirt.

Neon 3

Gap Vintage wash boxy crewneck ($24.95 – sale $22)
While this is not highlighter neon, it’s such a great way to embrace color if you are shy to start. Everything about this vintage tee is heavenly, the wash, the feel and the slightly boxy fit. Leave it to Gap to give you infinite options from fit, sleeve length to neck (v neck, split neck, crew, etc.) If you don’t already own a few of these tees you will now.

Marc Jacobs Bag

Marc Jacobs mini messenger crossbody ($199 (found at Saks off 5th, braintree))
This is a super easy way to add some neon into your closet. Plus, you can easily remove the strap and wear it on a brighter bag, larger bag or every bag you have in your closet.
