One of the best feelings in the world is when you try out a trend you were nervous about, and get loads of compliments. For me, that trend this season was neon. The acid hues bring new life to my mostly grey-white-black wardrobe and make my citified pale skin glow. I decided to give it a go at a birthday party I threw for a friend earlier this week. I started out tentatively, with this Swatch Bring Back watch ($220; swatch.com).
I teamed it with a white t-shirt tucked into rolled-up grey skinny jeans and strappy, black rocker heels. Great success. Emboldened, I upped the ante today by wearing a neon yellow cardigan from Club Monaco and the watch. And I got raves at every appointment I went on!
