What I wore today: 05/20/2012 (Neon and Chevron are friends)

Missoni for Target chevron tee, neon embroidered skirt, black lace ballet flats, gold purse, Prada baroque sunglasses

You may have noticed my enthusiasm about the neon trend that popped up last year (and has finally hit the midwest this year). You might also be aware of my chevron addiction. It was only a matter of time before the two collided, and I must say I like the result. 

The black and white pallet balances the neon in the same way a softer neutral does, and the mix of pattern and texture takes everything to another level. Often times, less is more. But sometimes, more can be more. And, after a week in hiking attire pulled from a suitcase, I was ready to jump back in with both feet.

What do you think? How would you style this neon skirt?

  1. I LOVE the pattern mixup you did! I would have never thought to do that, but then again, I'm not always daring when it comes to mixing patterns. You look trés chic.
