Styling fluorescents in a subtle way

You put the lime in the coconut, duh






WHAT I'M WEARING (or similar)




Evening readers, hope you had an eventful day! let's get straight to the outfit- I'll be the first to say I'm not a big fan of fluorescent colors but yet again, moderation has convinced me otherwise. I received this jacket from NumberLab and was happy to realize it was reversible! A pleaser for both parties - the bold colorful folks or the subtle and classic. I personally liked the checker pattern on the exterior and the lime peaking out every now and then. It was a refresher! I styled the rest of the outfit very modern and dapper. Skinny tie, skinny trousers and a menvelope! My roommate asked "where would one where this outfit?" and to be honest, anywhere! it's dressed up enough to attend events or meetings yet sporty enough for a lunch or hangout. 

try working in other "highlighter" hues into your everyday outfits for spring SUBTLY. Neons such as pink, yellow, lime or orange are great in forms of socks, watch straps, belts, shoe laces or lining of jackets(I've included some in the shopping bar above). Try making the rest of the outfit more toned down to hone in on the bright pops of color and you should be good to go:)

  18. The third one is my favorite. It reminds me of "The Thinker" or how the French like to call it, "Le Poete".

  19. I agree. Too much fluorescent colors will make one look like a highlighter. Nice that you muted it with neutral colors.

  20. Good idea. Not a fan of the highlighter look myself but in moderation could be something I experiment with. Thanks!

  24. I never thought I'd see someone wear neon and think, "wow, that looks good." So, thank you for that. Absolutely brilliant look. I'm a new follower of your blog and loving your style from what I've seen so far. You're giving me some great ideas. And now a lumo one. I'm impressed.
