This past spring, there was a surge of high-wattage color seen all over the runways, from Miu Miu, to Matthew Williamson, to Prada and Burberry. It wasn't long after the shows ended that editors and bloggers followed suit, pumping up the volume on their neutral ensembles with punchy hints of neon color pop.

Though the laser-like brightness of the new neon color palette can be intimidating to some, this is an instance where the rule "less is more" is one to keep in mind. Accessorizing a softly toned outfit with a neon belt does just the trick for summer style, elevating your look from demure to daring in an instant.

If you're willing to go all the way with neon, try a brightly colored trouser and belt with a crisp white button down to create just the right amount of pop. Even a night out with your party dress on can turn into a show stopping event when cinched up at the waist with a skinny neon belt.

If you haven't invested in one of these yet, now is definitely the time to get on board the day glow train. Check out our picks for the seven best neon belts to buy now.
