Neon Yellow

Update: This post has been updated on January 15, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

Very much the modern update on a classic pointy-toe pump, this design by Christian Louboutin is perfect for the fashionista who wants to be the first to add another sexy pair of heels to her wardrobe. While most versatile in black, (the way Rihanna and Lea Michele wear theirs), if you’ve got the budget to also get them in neon yellow… you can count on your feet getting a considerable amount of attention all season and beyond. And considering the popularity of this pair among Hollywood’s most stylish stars, it’s no wonder you can’t find them in stores. But, the good news is other designers are definitely catching on and look-a-likes have begun to emerge… One of the first designs to echo this coveted futuristic design at an affordable price is shown below…

Wild Rose Posy-01 PVC Ankle Strap Pumps

If you are a huge fan of the designer look above, then why not have a little fun with this version by Wild Rose? While it’s definitely not worth a huge investment, if you’re one to try many different styles, you can have a lot of fun wearing these. I do wish they had a little bit of a higher/skinnier heel and lower cut toe, but for ca. $30 you can play with this trend and show a little pop of neon under some trousers during cocktail hour. Pick one other accessory in a complimentary neon shade (like a cuff or a great belt) to really pull the outfit together and make it look effortless. Perhaps try the bright orange pair under some navy pinstripe trousers, a white blouse and a couple bright bangles in gold and magenta.

Budget Look – Lime, Stripes & Turquoise

by Irina on August 24, 2014

Felt like doing a new budget look today. And as you can see I’m still very much in love with the “striped crop top meets fitted skirt meets nude ankle strap heel”-thing. Sorry, can’t help it, it just makes such a stylish and flattering combination I think. This time I added a couple of turquoise accents to liven up the outfit. Do you like it?

I’m a big fan of nOir Jewelry and really loved their extravagant “Jaipur” collection which features neon cord bracelets, necklaces and earrings adorned with beautiful rhinestone embellishments. It’s a very unexpected way to pair such contrasting elements yet I think the combination of both totally works together. Sure, the pieces certainly have “trendy” written all over them, but to me they’re still pretty wearable. However, would I really shell out $160 for a cord bracelet? Hmmm, probably not.

Update (01/13/2014): Just stumbled upon this neon yellow braided bracelet at Forever 21 and instantly had to think of the nOir bracelet above. Also available in coral.

Express Neon Cord & Rhinestone Bracelet

If you’re like me and like the neon bracelet, but don’t want to spend too much on the neon trend, here’s a great alternative by Express that looks virtually identical to the “Adalti” bracelet but costs only $39.90 instead of $160! FYI: this would make a great gift for any fashion-forward, fearless fashionista.

The typical striped tee is reminiscent of French Chic inspired wear and this J.Crew Colorblock Stripe Boatneck Tee is like a modern version of that image. The pop of neon yellow really brings out the stripes and adds an interesting dimension to this shirt. This tee is casual enough to wear on a daily basis and a really great counterpart to other work and school wear. This version by J.Crew is priced at $39.50; so check out the look-a-like below.

SheIn Long Sleeve Striped Dipped Hem T-Shirt

Update (05/19/2013): Just stumbled upon these loosely J.Crew-inspired longsleeve shirts at SheIn. So lovely and so affordable, right? Available in black and blue stripe.

JCP Colorblock Boatneck Tee

The colorblocking this JCP boatneck tee features is identical with the J.Crew tee pictured above. The major difference is the price as this budget-friendly version is priced at $8-$10, depending on the fit. The colorblocking is drastic enough to grasp attention, yet still relaxed that this shirt is not overwhelming to the eye. As a perfect casual tee, you can pair this with denim and other informal garments.

Acne‘s shoes are probably what the brand is best known for, but their cozy knit sweaters are a close second favorite of mine. First, I obsessed over their mint-colored “Lia” cable knit jumper and now I find myself lusting for these bright waffle knit sweaters in yellow and blue. Pair these sweaters with a black leather leggings and matching ankle boots and you have an instantly chic outfit!
