I have very specific neon associations, related to the rise and demise of electroclash music in the early aughts. (Don’t pretend like you weren’t also all up in the club in pointy hot pink kitten heels. I saw you!) So I still tend to shy away from neons — I can’t deal with the Ladytron flashbacks.

That’s A Lot Of Look: Rita Ora’s Neon Sweatsuit

On the one hand, Rita Ora’s neon sweatsuit looks so comfortable that I’m kind of jealous I’m not wearing it right now.

Your Neon Nail Polish Is Totally Illegal, BTW

Seems ridiculous, I know, but neon nail polish is illegal to produce in the United States. That doesn’t mean you’ll get ticketed for wearing it (if you get your grubby hands on some, that is). It just means that your neon polishes are going to come import-only. For now.

Crave: Nail Polish So Bright It’ll Keep You Up At Night

My friend Sarah and I are obsessed with neon nails. I have to give Sarah a little credit though, because she started wearing hot pink as her signature nail color way before any of us had even heard of Rihanna — back then, that girl was still singing “Hero” in Barbados. So, day-glo polish i…
