Three Ways to Rock Neon Shorts

I recently bought myself a pair of pink neon shorts and was pontificating on how to best wear them. I suddenly got inspired to come up with three separate occasion looks based on a similar pair, as I had so much fun with my Three Dress Codes: One Dress piece. Because all too often we find ourselves buying pieces for one particular look or occasion.... at least I know I do!

My first look is that ultimate weekend brunch with the girls look! Paired with a basic white tee, cozy cardigan, a slightly punchy pair of espadrilles and what can only be described as "happy-making tote bag," you look casually polished

Second was possibly the most challenging - making neon shorts work for the office! Since they hit at the knee, they should be long enough for most, but def keep the rest of your look on the conservative side! A blouse, blazer and pumps do the trick! And focus on more neutral colors -  let the neon be the bold color of your outfit.

Finally, bright shorts are a fun change of pace for a going out look! Paired with a sparkly top and some killer bold heels (I adore pink and orange together!), you'll be a standout pop of color in the crowd.
