Accessories Report

After searching and searching I finally found a Fashionista wearing this spring’s most notable trend: the neon satchel. If you haven’t noticed that neon is this spring’s “it girl” I’m here to fill you in. The satchel also recently became all the rage thanks to the Cambridge Satchel Company and soon enough, it’ll be on every fashionable girl’s arm. Everything about this bag is so enticing, not to mention it’s hard to miss. Throw on your sunglasses because there’s going to be a lot of bright colors prancing around. Some of your favorite celebrities wear it best, such as Monica, LaLa Anthony, Kourtney Kardashian and Solange.

Your safest bet when wearing a neon bag would be to pair it with a neutral color. But neon is such a fun color, so why not be daring? Try mixing neon with neon like this Fashionista did here. It may seem a bit out there but you’ll be on trend and as long you’re styling with confident you can work it just fine. If you’re more on the cute but not so wild side, check out TheFashionCitizen's video and see how Steph and Melissa style their neon satchel. They keep it really inexpensive, informative and stylish.

Because neon is such a must have as well as the satchel, don’t fret. You don’t have to pay that steep price tag for a Cambridge one, check out Target. This Fashionista got hers for about $25! It’s a great size, sturdy and comes in not only yellow but green and pink as well. You can also find really inexpensive neon bags at Urbanog, Charlotte Russe and Love Culture.

Add some creativity in your life by making your own neon bag. Bring one of those old bags to life by getting some fabric paint in your favorite neon color and painting your bag. It’ll go from out to in, in minutes. Look for inspiration on some of your favorite style blogs such as Confessions Of A Glitterati. Wear that neon right and have fun!
