Neon Green in Street Style Fashion
Neon Green in Street Style Fashion

The color green just like purple has a plethora of shades from hunter green, army green, forest, olive and lime green to neon green, emerald green and jade to name a few. Much as it’s not my go to color unlike the color purple, Pantone’s pick for the year 2018, it has a unique way of uplifting a street style ensemble or any ensemble for that matter.

The energy that surrounds neon green in particular can’t be overemphasized. Little wonder it’s been very visible on the runways and ultimately on the shelves of a lot of retailers. 
Are you a fan?

Neon green has a richness and boldness to it that makes it perfectly seasonless. It also has a ‘pleasant surprise’ factor to it that will leave one wanting more. From a little piece of accessory or coordinate to a full blown neon green infatuation that will have heads turning as well as leave folks green with envy. Ha!

Head to toe green’d out is often times how I’ve seen this color styled. If you just cringed at the thought, I want you to know that you are not alone. Not by a long shot! You couldn’t pay me to leave my home clad in all green as recently as one month ago. Until I set eyes on this set from @judannclothings (introduced here, here, here) featuring a caftan with a high low hem as well as a summery array of flowers daintily sprinkled on the upper left corner and a matching crisp high waisted wide leg pants. 

I knew right away that I wanted to wet my feet in the H2T neon green craze but I also wanted to show a perfect street style with one or both of the pieces for those who are newbies or still be on the fence. I looked to add a different color that would compliment yet tone down the green just a tad. Blue naturally came to mind since they’re both next to each other on the color spectrum. 

The verdict? 
This duo sang a perfect harmony! 

I finished the look with a boater hat and an ark bag, another huge summer trend that could only house my wallet and phone for obvious reasons. Ha!

Red Pants + Sheer Top

Summer is finally here and what better way to welcome it than with a frilly sheer polka dot top and a pair of bright wide leg pants that will have you stand out in a crowd.

NOT ALL PANTS ARE CREATED EQUAL
A 70’s inspired style, wide leg pants are not only fun but fashion forward and gives the 'legs for days' effect especially when worn with a tucked in top that creates a head turning silhouette and creates balance. Even though this pair boasts a ton of volume, I didn’t feel that I was drowning in fabric.

While I wouldn’t wear this pair to work, wide leg pants in a light weight fabric (depending on the season) and paired with a crisp button down shirt makes for a very polished 9 to 5 look. Trade the shirt for a camisole or tank top and you’re after hours ready.

FRILLS + SHEER + POLKA DOTS = HEAVEN
Can you tell I’ve been obsessed with frills and sheer lately? I spoke about sheers here and how tricky they can be to pull off as not everyone is comfortable with baring it all. For this look, I wore a cropped tank top since my pants are high waisted and finished the look with an extra wide belt for more coverage. 

The polka dot craze is here to stay and I’m starting to incorporate them more and more as I transition my wardrobe to rising temps (speaking of which today we’re at 100 freaking degrees!!!). This top paired perfectly with the wide leg pants, both kindly sent from Judann Clothings (introduced here) and are a perfect addition to your Summer closet. Do check them out for more amazing pieces. 

I hope you like this look as much as I do.

The love for sheer fabrics has been sweeping the fashion world. A scroll down timelines reveal a plethora of sheer frocks that leave nothing to the imagination. From the runways to high street, designers have changed the once forbidden VPL (visible panty line) to VP (visible panty). 

While sheers have become the 'go to' fabric, pulling them off can be tricky sometimes. I'm honestly not a huge fan of baring it all but on the other hand, linings take away from the beauty of sheers. So to keep from giving the world a peep show in this lovely top kindly sent me from Fifinneji, I went for a full coverage bra/cami, one of the easiest ways to keep this fabric in one's radar without tossing decency out the window. Full coverage knickers would also be my personal preference if I had to wear sheer bottoms. 
You?

  How about this for an eye catchy and insanely chic skirt to go with the gorgeous top? We've all known and loved tiered/ ruffled sleeves, now their sartorial flouncy successors are here and I am a huge fan. This one is very feminine and can take you from day time to night time. I finished the look with a belt, an alluring pair of ankle boots and a graphic clutch I felt was a good match for the look -DRAMA. 
I hope you like this ensemble as much as I do.

Tiered Pleated Skirt + Print Sheer Top

Saturday, May 26, 2018


The past few seasons have been all about statement sleeves! Dramatic sleeves that steal the spotlight including bell, cold shoulder, tulip, oversized, balloon and extended stay populating my Instagram feed. Both high end and high street brands are churning them out with each collection outdoing the prior. Go big or go home!
 Oh fashion, can’t live with it, can’t live without it!

The first time I saw this dress, I fell in love with the lovely statement making tulip detail. And I dared to style it with another statement piece, a layered topper. Who says two statement pieces can’t be styled together without clashing? Hey, more is more sometimes, keyword sometimes, Ha!

This attention grabbing sleeves come in a longer length but I went for the shorter as longer sleeves can tend towards being impractical sometimes. 

Statement sleeves are definitely becoming a staple, what style whets your whistle? While balloon sleeves have a a very special place in my heart, extended sleeves are what I work into my OOTD more often that others. 

The Layered gingham topper was kindly sent me from The Kemist. I styled a similar style of theirs here. I love the zipper detail and kept it down for an effortless look. Just because hats will always be 'a thing' for me, I went for a boater hat to complete the look. 

I’ve also styled this topper zipped up with a belt to accentuate the waist. Would you like to see that look? 

How’s everyone going? It’s the last days of the school year and it has been crazy busy. I’m looking forward to Summer vacay even though I’m staying local for the most part this year. What are your plans for the Summer? 

Have a fantastic Memorial Day weekend!
