From Vogue spreads to the JC Penney catalogue, it would take a serious hermit to not know this season’s biggest trend is neon color blocking. The mixing and matching (or lack thereof) of neons colors is everywhere!
Have you dared to experiment with this trend yet?
I decided to venture into it in a color scheme that was very familiar to me. I always gravitate toward bold, jewel tones so I figured I would be best served by finding an item that could pair well with items I already owned.
I wasn’t necessarily looking for this skirt but when I was at Old Navy with a friend who was in search of a replacement pair of $2 beach sandals, I happened across it and couldn’t not snatch it up for only $12. My only regret is not trying it on as I quickly learned that Old Navy sizes tend to run a size or two too large. Oh well, my should-be natural waist skirt now skims my hips. Worse things have happened in this world.
Anyways…. so I snatched up this little piece and immediately new I just had to color block with it.
The heels I’ve had for a few years but often pass over. I bought them for a specific dress for a wedding and have probably only worn them a few times since. This was a great opportunity to dust them off and let them go for a walk.
The necklace should look super familiar as I wear it any chance I get. This may be the best $15ish ever spent at Charming Charlie.
Finally, I added a simple white tee to keep everything in balance. One of these days I may go out and buy the perfect top to bring the full color blocking to life with this skirt, but until then I wanted to tone it down a bit and make this a little more every day wearable. (AKA, I didn’t want to look like a highlighter.) There’s no better way to do this with neons than by adding neutrals. Try white, tan or black the next time you want to show off your new neons and you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to wear!
