This week’s Fashionista is right on trend with her bright neon jeans! She has achieved a relaxed and trendy look by rolling up her skinny jeans and wearing her favorite sneakers. Her top is delicate and feminine, creating the perfect balance between girly and urban style. I absolutely loved the small metal details in her blouse, they added a subtle sparkle and the perfect amount of edge. Her individuality caught my attention immediately, her glasses and her watch completely bring her outfit together and add personality. When buying neons, always try it on because not all neons go with every skin color. Ideally, you would choose a color that lets you stand out and complements your skin tone in the best possible way.
