Q&A: A Printed Skirt and Neon Strips

Question: What do I wear with a tight floral skirt that ends at my knees?  The colors are pretty bright so I don’t know if I could wear a bright color top also.  Thank you

Answer: To much of a good thing, is just that, to much.  So with a bright-colored, printed skirt, try wearing a solid-colored blouse, button down shirt or cable-knit sweater in blush or neutral colors.  If you want to wear a printed blouse, (print on print love) break it up with a solid statement belt, jacket or blazer so all that print doesn’t get you lost in the look.

Question: I like the neon trend that is going on, but I can’t handle wearing a lot of these bright colors. How can I wear neon without looking stupid and loud?

Answer: This is something that can be done in small doses at first.  For example: clothes or shoes with neon-colored trims. A neon-colored blouse paired with black or dark-colored  pants or jeans.  Once you’ve become comfortable with wearing the bright colors, then you can add more neon to your look.
