Spring has officially sprung! Out here in Northern California, our temperatures have begun to rise, and with that, we are changing our wardrobes to reflect the sunny weather. This spring season, a trendy, fun way to showcase the transition from rain to sun is through brights, and I mean neon brights. I bet you never guessed one of your favorite fashion trends would come from the 1980s?

Pick one of these neon pieces to wear with a spring or summer outfit to make it POP!

In order to not go totally overboard, I suggest only showcasing a “pop” of neon. Personally, I take my transition from winter to spring very gradually. I usually start off with something subtle, like my nail polish. I switch my oxblood or navy blue polish for a coral or egg shell blue. I guess I can’t let go of my comfy sweaters, riding boots, anoraks and infinity scarves.

With all the above clothing and accessories, they have the right amount of POW but not so much as to overwhelm and blind fellow citizens. But it’s not just the department stores that are picking up on the neon trend. Neon has been showcased on the runways in both the Spring 2012 and 2013 shows.

Below is a sample of our favorite designer pieces from the shop that showcase the neon trend.
