On Trend: Neon and Brights

It's official! The 80's are back in a big and bold way with neons and brights dominating summer styles.  I love the liveliness of these colors! Although I am a bit color shy myself, pairing only one colorful item with another neutral, I tried to play with pairing all neon and bright outfits with similarly bright colored accessories.  In reality, these looks are perhaps still a bit too bold for myself.  Were I adventurous enough to wear one of these colorful looks, I may tone the outfit down with adding a neutral shoe or bag or both.  However, seeing them put together with the accessories makes me think anyone can pull this off.  How great would these outfits look during the spring and summer months?! Any girl can put together something similar and stand out confidently, knowing she looks great and in the now.  Check out the bold looks below that I put together on and see what you think.

On Trend: Neon and Brights

While I'm loving all these looks, my particular favorites are the green shoes by Poetic License and the blue wide leg pants.  Also that red cap sleeve Karen Millen top would be a perfect compliment to any work wardrobe!  *Sigh*  It'll be a few more weeks until we get that warm, summer-like weather back in D.C. (we had some unseasonably warm days in the 70's and 80's just this past March, and now it's gone back to early spring like weather in the 50's and 60's)  but I know what looks I'll be putting together in the mean time.
