Look We Love: Pop of Color!

Who says you can't look fabulous while on the job?  With Spring in full bloom, and Summer on the near horizon, we are loving the bold color trend.  Especially neon colors!

This look features a more sophisticated and classic way to rock bold colors, as a pop of color to a neutral palette.  Since not everyone likes to wear head to toe color, I styled a look that adds just a touch of color in one bold piece.

 I wanted to create a black base to make the neon yellow skirt really pop, so I chose this lovely and delicate black semi-sheer blouse with neck bow detail.  For the sake of the lookbook, I punched it up with a bold yellow bra, but for a more conservative look, I would wear a black camisole under the shirt to create an opaque look.

Black Bow Blouse: 

I also added a feathered bird necklace to bring some color up closer to the face so the skirt doesn't steal all of the attention!

Bird Feathers Necklace:

Black leggings complete the black palette, and next comes the neon yellow skirt.  What a pop!  I added a gold jeweled cuff to ground the yellow hues of the skirt a bit, and an ethnic designed beaded belt around the waist which gives a nice interesting element of color and pattern from the rear view!

And finally, some chunky lace up black booties.  These are perfect as they continue the black line of the leggings which helps make your legs look miles long, and the chunkiness of the heels helps to balance out the boldness of this entire look.

And there's the look!  What do you think?  Give you ideas of working with pops of color?
