This story is from our partner, FabSugar! Twice a month we’ll share FabSugar’s best fashion tips and shopping guides. Today’s post teaches you how to style neon accessories written by Marisa Tom of FabSugar:
We’re all for putting our colors on blast (read: neon wares), but depending on the scene, it’s just not feasible to rock our fluoro-flair to its fullest potential. Thus, we’ve selected three brighter than bright statement accessories – a necklace, a double-banded cuff, and drop earrings – to pair with both work-appropriate and after-hours pieces. The result? Six outfits, ready to be worn from day to night with just a quick wardrobe change. From an electric yellow necklace set against a sweet Phillip Lim frock to a bright red beaded cuff worn with bold Dries Van Noten graphic-printed pants, your Spring style will get the vibrant boost it deserves effortlessly. Just click through to see how we’ve styled these three neon pieces, six ways.
Bring on the bold…
Let this bold Tom Binns-inspired necklace take the lead. Don a light orange-hued shift dress with nude wedges for day. Then, turn up the slick factor for evening with a darker-hued mini and edgy black sandals.
Adia Kibur Multi-Strand Necklace ($174) Work: 3.1 Phillip Lim Short Faded Orange Silk Dress ($495), Marais USA T-Bar Wedge in Smoke ($160) Play: Issa Ruffle Knitted Dress ($600), Alexander Wang Nadia Sandals ($525)
Mix in your colors…
We love a subtle pop of color, and these Tom Binns earrings are the perfect way to achieve this exact effect. To make sure your work attire doesn’t distract, opt for a gray blazer and floral skirt duo, but remember to wear your hair pulled back! For happy hour drinks, slip into something slinkier, like a lacy LBD, and pair it with a beaded clutch and bright blue wedge sandals.
Tom Binns Neo Neon Flower Earrings ($195) Work: Bless Tank Scarf ($353), Paul Smith Navy Floral Skirt ($445), Repetto Vintage Silk Ballet Flat in Black ($265) Play: Vanessa Bruno AthÃ© Sleeveless Lace Dress ($384), J.Crew Ready or Not Suede Sandals ($228), Forever 21 Bead & Sequin Stripe Clutch ($23)
Go from sweet to exotic…
Cuff the sleeves of your mohair sweater to show off this double-banded neon red cuff, but keep your daytime outlook simple. For your nighttime activities, try a cool graphic-print trouser and exotic-textured sandals.
Bex Rox “Alabama” Cuff ($338) Work: Topshop Knitted Rib Mohair ($76), Sandro Mint Skinny Pants ($225), Robert Clergerie “Jilic” Oxfords ($575) Play: Dries Van Noten Printed Pants ($995), Diane von Furstenberg Issie Draped Silk-Charmeuse Top ($95), Bottega Veneta Karung and Metallic Leather Sandals ($820)
