How to Wear Neon Without Looking Like You're 12

You might wanna shield your eyes from this year’s big fashion trend -- in a good way: Super-bright neon hues were the unofficial trendy uniform for attendees at this spring’s super-hip Coachella music festival in Palm Springs. Concertgoers sported some seriously bright kicks, caps, and mini dresses this year... and looked fab doing it!

For those of us who didn’t get to party in Cali, even if your memories of wearing Day-Glo colors involve unfortunate Lycra T-shirt-and-leggings combos in your awkward middle school years, there’s good news. Snag these fluorescent accessories for a chic way to rock the neon trend now… without flashbacks to the days of braces and boy-girl mixers.

In fact, Bethenny was just spotted out and about in NYC wearing a bright-pink neon Gap sweater — another way to embrace the look!
