Yes, I know. Wrong season. I’ve been spending the last two weeks poring over the spring ’09 runway shows, and all the shots of hot pink and acid yellow have me craving spring's color palette. But I haven’t even built my fall wardrobe yet. My compromise? Start working some neon pieces into my look now.
Fall’s not ready (and I’m not either) to do neon from head to toe, but a pair of eye-popping Juicy tights will brighten up a dress-and-boots combo. And for a casual Saturday, I’ll don a bright yellow Blue Life tank with a gray cardigan and dark jeans. Inching just a bit closer to really doing neon up right, I’ll try this hot pink Alexander Wang dress—a refreshing shot of color in his otherwise dark repertoire (a hint at his spring collection perhaps).
It’s a small way to get my spring fix now, but I’ve got to do it because I know I’ll be wooed by fall ’09 come February.
