HOW TO: Wear Neon

The weekend is over, but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop. Hopefully you have or will make up an excuse to dress up this week! The item of discussion: Our fabulous BB Dakota Neon Coral skirt.

So how do you take such a bold piece like this and make it work for a date night, and with the rest of your wardrobe? We pulled in some classic pieces, you probably (or should probably) have hanging up in your closet already! The key is to centre everything around the skirt, keeping things subtle and neutral and letting the statement piece shine (literally in this neon/glitter-tastic case!). Tuck a plain white fitted t-shirt into your skirt (StyleMint makes exceptional ones!). Throw on a leather motorcycle jacket over top; the juxtaposition of the ultra feminine skirt and the roughness of the outerwear is what makes this outfit, let's just say it: badass. To play up the sequin trimming at the bottom of the skirt, go for an oversized sequin clutch (it's okay to have a little matchy-matchy in small doses). A nude pump will help tone the rest down, creating some balance. It will also make your legs appear extra lean and long! This outfit wants to be taken out on the town! Enjoy your next night out.
