How to wear neon this spring

Ask 10 women if they plan on wearing the season's newest neons and eight may say "nooooo way." Some remember the London punk-inspired neon of the '80s, while others are just plain scared of those powerful pops. "I get why you don't want to look like a crossing guard in an orange jacket, but that fear shouldn't lead you to shutting off -- it's not all or nothing," says fashion personality and celebrity stylist Robert Verdi. Tough, East Village-style neon has morphed into Madison Avenue-East Hampton chic, says Verdi, especially when worn with neutrals such as navy, khaki, chocolate brown or light blue.
