bring on neon

Turn your BLACK & WHITE WITH A POP! BattleShop closet WAY UP this week when you throw it back to the 80s and BRING ON THE NEON jewelry. We found tons of great pieces to go with this gorgeous Iris & Ink Ciara stretch jersey dress ($150, The Outnet). These grown up brights take you back to the days of jelly jewelry will bring a super fun element of surprise to your monotone look. Our advice? If you’re loading up your BattleShop closet with neon jewelry, keep everything else black or white, for maximum POP!

– Once you’ve found the pieces you want to compete with, move the required items to your Closet. Your $4,000 battlebudget will decrease as you move items to the Closet. Be sure to stay within your budget!

– When all of the categories in the Closet are full, click the LOCK button at the bottom of the roster and your Closet will be submitted to a voting league. Be sure to LOCK at least ONE closet by Friday at 11:59 pm (EST).

– First you’ll vote within your league and if you WIN, you’ll move on to the FINALS where you’ll compete for SOMETHING UNDER $50 FROM YOUR CLOSET! Not bad for online fantasy shopping, are we right?
