Spring is About to POP!

We’ve finally turned a corner.

The temperatures have regularly climbed above freezing for the last week or so (hooray!), and it feels like it’s truly time to welcome spring (even though I’ve mentally already been there for about a month).

And to welcome spring in style, I’ve chosen pieces this week that are all about color! This week’s Goodwill gem is a daring—but super fun and playful—neon yellow belt. Since it’s very skinny, the in-your-face color comes off as cool and cute rather than overwhelming—it’s just one little strip of seriously bright accessorizing that will really wake up any outfit.

Keep the rest of your outfit simple, too.

The key with such a bright and attention-grabbing accessory is to pair it with basic pieces and other solid colors to keep the whole ensemble from feeling too busy (or just too, too much). You could definitely throw on something effortless and classic, like your favorite black pants and a solid tee or sweater in another neutral hue like white or gray. But here, I’ve still paired it with another vibrant color—and I think I’ve managed to pull it off because the item I’ve chosen (a dress in a lovely purple) is solid—there’s no big, loud pattern fighting the neon for attention. The purple shift, thought still bright, is slightly more subdued than the yellow and is also in a classic shape with clean lines, making it the perfect style partner for my eye-catching new accessory.
