Bright, bold colors in saturated tones and neon galore is one of this year’s biggest trends. For those not wanting to commit serious dollars to what could be a short lived trend that doesn’t revive for 30 years (Hello 1980s), DIY fashion expert, Erica Domesek, founder, and author of P.S.- I Made This shared her creative genius in giving regular shoes a cool and temporary makeover that will get you noticed, especially on the dance floor.

For maximum eye-catching effect, stop by REI or go on line to find reflective running bands in various bright neon colors. Domesek recommends picking up a thick and thin style and, if necessary, trim down the ends for a better fit. Wrap them around your heels as shown in the images. When you’ve had your fun, just take them off and, voila! Your stems are back to their old self again.

Two shoe looks for under $10.
