Hi, babes! Have you caught on to this trend yet? The neon trend? Can you believe it’s making such a big debut this season? Well, whether we like it or not, neon is here to stay! It’s big, it’s bright, and it’s bold! It’s a fun contrast to our typical jewel-tone fall hues. Figuring out how to pull off the neon trend is a different story though…

There are definitely women out there rocking this statement in head-to-toe neon outfits and looking like boss babes! I however, a young mom in her 30s, just don’t see myself wearing a highlighter yellow jumpsuit or a neon pink maxi dress to drop my kids off at school anytime soon. For me, I gravitate more toward a subtle pop of color.

In order to dip my toe in the neon trend, I am opting to make a more subtle statement. I am pairing my neon items with minimal pieces. For example, this Love Maschino dress from Clotheshorse Anonymous simply has a neon yellow necklace – a statement bold enough for me!

I also grabbed this Rebecca Minkoff bag with neon piping around it while I was at Clotheshorse Anonymous. The piping gives a nod to the neon trend and allows me to continue to dress in neutral, warmer hues for fall. Honestly, I am so grateful for Clotheshorse Anonymous for finding designer pieces at a major discount when shopping trends like this one. The neon trend is definitely one of those trends that will not stand the longevity of time. Therefore, it’s not a trend I want to invest in financially. Luckily, I can get some key designer pieces via consignment without spending much at all!
