When the 80’s neon trend popped back into society recently, we heard rumors that it was just a fad. So false!
When looking for confirmation about styling a wacky trend from another decade, it’s always a good idea to turn to the celebs and see what they’re up to. Because honestly, those chicks are on top of trends like bees on honeycombs. Right!? Okay ladies, it’s time to travel back in time and pull out mother’s neon jeans and accessories from the eighties because everything and we mean EVERYTHING from jeans, shirts, and dresses to shoes, handbags, and accessories are being called upon. Oh my!
