It’s getting closer to the weekend and you’re going out for drinks with friends or on a date in the next couple nights so what should you wear? I recommend NEON. A neon sweater is still conservative, yet shows you’re willing to have some fun with fashion. Besides, what says ‘Yay, Spring is almost here!’ better than a bright shade against any complexion. And guys can wear neon too! Case in point, The Freshy P’s by Chubbies Shorts.
I’ve been wearing this lemon-lime sweater all winter and before I left California, I paired it with my go-to leather shorts last seen in Zurich’s Snow Leopard post. Here’s a few NEON style tips along with my current March faves…
‘Hardcore Cashmere’ ~ I’m actually surprised there’s not a fashion blog by this name, but the point is don’t be afraid to pair cashmere sweaters and soft fabrics with leather shorts, leggings and stilettos. They balance each other on cool California evenings.
Mixing Current Trends ~ Besides the pop of neon, I decided to go with this new pair of ombre wedges by BCBG and copied Michelle Obama’s bangs (PS ~ The 1st lady is now on twitter. Follow her @FLOTUS)
Neon ON Neon ~ Wearing a bold neon sweater is enough of a statement, but don’t be afraid to wear a bright contrasting lip like this vitamin-infused gloss by Tarte.
Short Hair Question for You ~ From the lovely Giuliana Rancic to bloggers like Emily of CupcakesAndCashmere and maybe your friends, have you noticed women everywhere are rocking shorter hairstyles this Spring? Will you be following this trend?
March Faves ~ (So Far) Besides comfy neon sweaters, this month I’m loving: 1. Glamour magazine 2. the PSY special edition tuxedo bracelet c/o Cruciani, and 3. Liz Sparkling water in Europe. It’s the smoothest sparkling water I’ve ever tasted, low in sodium unlike other sparkling waters, with special minerals. It’s bottled and sold in Germany, but I hope they import to the US soon.
