OK, OK -- we already said not to wear neon head-to-toe. But there's a way around this rule if you really want to embrace neon in a big way: Wear two (or more) pieces of neon together using a technique called color-blocking. Warning: This is not for the faint of heart. Only a real fashionista can pull this off!

Basically, color-blocking neon means wearing a solid neon color on top and a contrasting solid neon color on the bottom (think a top and a skirt). No patterns! Or, you can find a color-blocked dress with wide stripes of neon color contrasted with black or white.
