Chartreuse: Hot for Spring

LanvinOne of the most talked about colors for the spring/summer season is chartreuse -- that greenish-yellow neon color you probably still remember from 1988.

Fortunately, you can now find more than off-the-shoulder, aerobics tees in the shade.

Thanks to designers like Lanvin (responsible for the outfit the model pictured is wearing) and Prada, the color is popping up in handbags, tops, skirts, and shoes, and it's a fun way to give your boring black and neutral basics a burst of color this upcoming season.

Want to see some affordable chartreuse options you can get your hands on right now?
