The Look for Less: Ann Taylor Neon Necklace

Like many of you, I'm obsessed with Ann Taylor's neon "sunburst" necklaces which come in yellow, pink or orange. You can cave and pay $78 or wait patiently for a sale. You could also use a coupon (the CouponSherpa mobile app currently has one for 40% off any one full price item), or sign up for Ann Taylor newsletters and get 20% off.

If you're looking for a slightly cheaper alternative, t + j Designs has some eye-catching neon necklaces that might be just what you've been craving. These beauties range from $38-$40, and they have other sparkle for even less.

Another option comes from fashion-blogger-favorite Spike the Punch. I was late to the Spike the Punch lovefest and now it seems most styles are out of stock, but I'm sure they will replenish their neon necklaces eventually. Most are $50.

Finally, I picked up a clear crystal necklace from Forever 21 a few months ago now and plan on painting it (eventually) with neon nail polish, so there's always the DIY route.

If you've found a great neon necklace on a budget, let us know in the comments!
Can't pull off neon. Boo.

I love these necklaces...they make any outfit look updated with the neon trend and they look absolutely amazing with a white shirt/dress.

You can also make these yourself. Just go to Claire's and get some necklaces for under $15. Buy the $1 neon nail polish at Sally's. Copy a color combo that you like. Paint them. Done. =)

Do you think the neon nail polish will last on your crystal F21 necklace? That's a great idea!!!
