February 2012 Lookbook: Balance Neons with Pastels

Omiru's February 2012 Lookbook: Balance Neons with Pastels
This look is part of Omiru’s February 2012 Lookbook series, which builds upon our 16-Piece February 2012 Capsule Wardrobe.  See more information about this look.

Spring heralds the return of neon brights.  I’m wholeheartedly embracing the burst of color, with the understanding that these loud colors can be challenging to wear.  My favorite trick is to balance out the neon brights with subtle pastels.  The resulting look is bright - but not overwhelming.  Here’s how to get the look:

1. Start with a neon foundation: a bright yellow jacquard sweater over a neon green tweed skirt.  Lots of color,and even more texture.
2. Accessorize with pastel pieces that tone down the brights - a pair of grey suede pumps to ground the look, and a pale peachy pink handbag that plays off the yellow and green beautifully.
3. Finish off the look with a neutral colored necklace - a silver cap and ball necklace that really completes the look.

How will you wear neon brights?
