Over the weekend I decided to make a statement by exploring my fun side using neon colors. According to the NYFW and varies magazines, neon colors are on trend for spring 2019. I was so excited to hear that neons were making a comeback. As a fashion blogger is was super important to me to play around with this trend. So I took to the street of Downtown Detroit and strut my stuff. Bright bold orange was certainly my muse this weekend. Can you tell a sis was feeling herself ?
Orange is the happiest color!
Now before you go “the brighter the better” there is a few questions you need to ask yourself before tackling neon. Ask yourself how big you want to go? Are you a more subtle or bold? Are you a risk taker when it comes to fashion? Let me tell you I am more of a “subtle sis” when it comes to neons. Less is more. When I wear clothes I like to make a statement however I don’t want to over do it. I like for my outfit to be versatile. I want to be able to wear this wherever.
So I picked one neon piece and paired it with neutral colors and prints rather than mixing neon colors. Light brown, beige, or white are great colors to use to pair with neons, if you are going for a more subtle look. In addition, adding a neon accessory to your wardrobe is another way to go subtle and standout and the same time. This is tip is for my minimalist sis. Now if you know me I quite quirky so I like to have fun with my fashion trends. I am not for all the rules in fashion. My personality has to reflect in my clothes.

I came across this high neck neon orange top from Shein. I had to get it because the shirt was on sale for $9. Can’t beat the price. I also thought the loose high neck was flattery. The material of this shirt is soft and lightweight with a bit of stretch. I purchase this shirt in 0XL which is equivalent to sizes 12. It fit to my liking.
Saving Note: When it comes to trends I do not like to spend top dollar. It is trend and it not meant to last. Why would I spend all my coins on something that is temporary?
Anyway I decided to pair this neon orange with my deep black jeans from Burlington. When I initially looked in the mirror all I saw was pumpkin LOL. I had to figure out a way to mute it down. As I was saying before you can mute neon colors down with neutral colors. Light browns, beige, and/ or white. So, I decided to mute this down with my lightweight light color camouflage jacket from Forever 21. I love camo. The outfit was perfect! Since I am a girl of fashion that does not like following the rules I added my snake skin ankle boots to the mix. These boots are my favorite and they have been on my site nonstop. Who going to check me? lol just kidding.
Sidenote: Now if you are not a big fan of camouflage like I am, you can pair your vibrant orange shirt with a jean jacket, or olive-green jacket. Also have fun with canvas or cargo like material.
