Neon can bring back memories of days spent on the playground in lime green scrunchy socks, hot pink oversized tees (knotted on one side, naturally) and perhaps one (or three) bright orange slap bracelets — but this time around, florescent colors have taken a turn for the better. Both Christopher Kane's and Burberry's Spring runway shows were rife with brights, and celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Cavallari have gotten in on the trend by spicing up their everyday ensembles with pops of color. For those of you cringing about going back in time, just keep in mind that high-wattage hues, in small doses, can add a fresh, fun look to your Summer wardrobe staples. Whether it's a sheath dress, skinny belt, or statement necklace, be sure to anchor your bold pops of neon with neutrals like khaki, navy, or white. Ready to rock some brights?

Opting for a glittery mini dress and a few eclectic accessories, Brooklyn Decker showed off a spunkier style while attending an event in NYC. We love how she plays with the unexpected, adding a pair of bright red Manolos to her sparkly dress. To recreate the same breezy look, pair a fun statement mini, like this Missoni ($417, originally $695) with a braided belt, like Brooklyn's. Finish it off with a metallic clutch ($295) and a pair of fringe earrings and you've got a perfectly cool look for Summer parties.

To mark Jimmy Choo's 15th year, the company is launching the Icons Collection, a capsule collection of 15 styles pulled from the Jimmy Choo archives. According to WWD, the shoes will range from $850-$3,875 and will only be carried in Jimmy Choo stores. Tamara Mellon, the founder of Jimmy Choo and its chief creative officer, said, "These are shoes that have a personal story for me or resonate with the customer." One of the styles is the Feather, which Sarah Jessica Parker lost in an episode of Sex and the City. Stay tuned for more pictures of the new/old collection. What styles are you hoping to see resurrected?
