As many Fashionistas will agree, one of the chicest ways to make a statement is with a pop of color. And for summer, my favorite touches of color are definitely found in the neon family. Paired with an otherwise neutral outfit, pops of neon take center stage and are sure to make any Fashionista stand out in a crowd.
This Fashionista shows off a double dose of the neon trend with her perfectly paired accessories. Her bright blue scarf is eye-catching when draped simply around her neck over a black long-sleeve tee. I love the way she effortlessly utilized a simple scarf as a statement piece. She adds on a killer hot pink cross body bag for an extra burst of color. The quilted texture of the bag coupled with its gold hardware adds a stylish edge to her look.
By keeping her head wrap and platform pumps simple and classic in black, she creates a cohesive, put-together look. A few simple jewels add the finishing touches while still keeping the neons the main focus.
The key to rocking multiple neon accent accessories is to keep those pieces fairly small and simple. Instead of competing with one another, her scarf and bag work together to complement her modern neutral outfit. I love anything in an animal print, and this Fashionista’s pair of leopard print harem pants is so chic for throwing a playful pattern into the look.
As this Fashionista demonstrates, all you need for an extra fabulous look this summer is one (or two) neon accessories.
