Neons & Neutrals

To say the S/S 11 shows were bright is an understatement, to put it mildly.

Between the fluorescent pink column skirts at Jil Sander, electric blue accents at Versace, and acid yellow sweater dresses at Cacharel, there was enough neon on the runways to power the Jem and the Holograms 1986 World Tour.

But while I love a kitschy '80s reference, I do not want to look like a cartoon character—so what's a fashion-loving girl to do? Easy: simply temper my neons with traditional neutrals to create a sophisticated take on this of-the-moment look!

If you're hesitant about committing to an article of clothing, no worries, there are loads of accessories that will work too - you can refer to my post about the neon yellow Kate Spade purse here?

However you incorporate neon and nude into your wardrobe, just make sure you go for uncomplicated silhouettes and otherwise understated makeup.

By opting for simplicity, you'll keep the focus on the color—which is exactly what you want!
