Nothing says summer like a jolt of neon! Whether it's a bright pop of color in a neutral outfit or bold head-to-toe color-blocking, everyone can wear this trend. To find out how to incorporate neon into your wardrobe, check out the inspiration collage, the ultra-bright shopping guide, and the DIY paint-splattered earrings below!
It may seem wild, but the neon trend can actually be worn day or night. Shocking colors can be office-appropriate when used as a focal pop of color, for example, a neon yellow belt over a gray dress or a hot pink blouse with a tan skirt. For evening, mix-and-match brights to make a bold statement. Not sure how to mix such shocking colors? My current favorite color combos are neon blue with electric yellow and hot pink with orange and red. But don't overthink it- all of these colors work great together.

Want to wear this trend your own way? Try these super-easy DIY neon-splattered earrings, inspired by Tom Binns, and give it your own spin.
How you do it:
1. Lay your earrings as flat as possible on a protected surface.
2. Take one of the nail polishes and get the brush very wet. Holding the brush over the earrings, flick the cap so the paint splatters.
3. Continue splattering all of the colors.
4. Go back and brush polish on any bare areas, keeping the look messy.
5. Let dry and wear!
