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.
