It?s All About the Neon Trends: Summer 2009

As the summer weather warms up, let your wardrobe take a similar spike in temperature. As devotees of all things dark, we know the difficulty in parting with the urbanite uniform of all black.

But while dark hues are ideal for an icy winter, it?s finally time to treat yourself to a burst of energy with colors reminiscent of your middle school highlighter collection. This season?s hot pieces are shades of electric neon, and everyone from Fifth Avenue to Fargo is following the trend. Scared to strut down the electric avenue? Well, fear no more, die hard fashionistas. We?ve got some prime examples from Boston?s Crush Boutique that encourage a life that?s little bit more colorful.

Only want to dip a toe into the kiddie pool of neon fashion? Accessories are the perfect opportunity to add a little spice to an outfit without looking like a walking highlighter. These subtle gold and orange earrings by Byboe are perfect for all the timid ladies out there.

While still in the jewelry realm, this Mandell Designs necklace of turquoise and light green beads is for the fashionistas with a bit more gumption. If you?re still looking to keep your ensemble low key, pile a similar bright necklace on top of a typical black or white Hanes tank.

If you?re ready to dive head first into the world of neon, considering pairing a simple tee in a soft, cotton fabric with an everyday pair of jeans. This electric green shirt by Daftbird is perfect for the girl who prefers comfort to couture, yet she?ll still be fashion forward in a season full of color.

Can?t get your fill of feminine frills? Neon colors can travel from the workplace to the dance floor, as long as you balance the color scheme with skill. While the world of workplace fashion tends to be pretty conservative, there?s no reason a girl can?t add some color to an outfit. Pictured above, this LA Made highlighter yellow blouse pairs beautifully with a tailored black pant and blazer. While cubicle life might be a bit drab, a stylish outfit can always help the day pass by a little faster. To transform your outfit for a night out on the town, banish that blazer and look for a pair of strappy black stilettos. No neon sign has ever shined so bright!
