Let Neon Knits Light the Dark Days Ahead

Here's a bright idea for you. Now that it's dark at 5 p.m. (thanks, Daylight Saving Time), be the light you want to see in this world by wearing neon knitwear.

The DayGlo trend that got its start this summer has resurfaced this fall as cozy clothing in fluorescent shades. High-voltage hues add an element of surprise to otherwise basic pieces such as beanies or boxy sweaters like this electric crewneck. The key to pulling off neons is to wear them with confidence and not be afraid to shine.

That being said, you can tone down any tone by pairing it with light-wash jeans and simple white sneakers or boots. You can also amp up the wow-factor with a full-on monochromatic outfit. For the latter, keep it in the color family but play with different textures, like velvet or corduroy to make things interesting.  Either way, neon knits are one cure for the seasonal doldrums and general feelings of meh that can set in this time of year. It's like color therapy for your closet.
