Fashions Under $50: Neon for Fall

By Erin Donnelly

neonFall fashion is here, but just because the temperature is dropping doesn’t mean you have to settle for drab and gloomy color palettes in your closet. One of fall’s biggest fashion trends is bright, neon hues that act as lively complements to the season’s typical blacks, grays, and browns. And what better way to beat the winter blues than some feel-good color? Check out these $50-and-under pieces to upgrade your single gal style on the cheap.

Victoria’s Secret Cotton Modal V-Neck Tee: Available in bright blue, yellow or pink, this drapey top adds a fun shock of color when paired with jeans or neutral bottoms. $38.50 (shown)

Newport-News Bias-Cut Scoopneck Tank: Liven up your work wardrobe by pairing this bright pink silk shell with your black pencil skirt (or trousers) and a black blazer. Add some chunky pearls for extra flair. $19

American Apparel Women’s Sleeveless Bateau: Available in fluorescent yellow or red, this basic jersey boatneck makes for trend-savvy weekend wear. Try it with jeans and a black or charcoal gray cardigan. $16

Gap Lightweight Tassel Scarf: For a little flash of color, layer this bright scarf (we like the striking yellow, teal and purple hues) over a dark cardigan or coat. $23.99

Kenneth Jay Lane Neon Pink Hoops: Channel the ‘80s (which are, like, totally hot right now) with these funky hoops. Wear them with a little black dress on your next big night out. $45
