Neons and neutrals are the perfect way to add some color to your life without looking like an array of neon light signs. Check out Jason Wu’s Resort 2012 Collection that debut this week. Neon bags with neon accents incorporated into neutral outfits equals sophistication yet fun.
Neon and neutral can be intimating to put together, it’s a quirky combo that works perfectly when done right. Some advice I have to offer is to choose a piece that does the work for you. Try this dress from ASOS, with an Aztec print on top paired with a neon skirt. Or pair this neon and black striped top from Forever 21 with some black or white shorts for an easy neon and neutral look.
Another way to wear neon and neutrals is by pairing them with basics and combining them together for the perfect combination.
If you’re not neon crazy I recommend working these pieces into your accessories, as Jason Wu does. Try a Cambridge Satchel Company tote. I am dying to get one! While they do come in all sorts of neon colors, I realize they’re not necessarily “for less”. However, I must confess they are totally worth the splurge!
Last but not least take a look at these affordable accessories. I can guarantee some major compliments from these last three items: the backpack is from Target, the bangles from Forever 21, and the clutch is from ASOS.
