Spring fever is in the air, but despite some of the flowers starting to bloom, spring has not fully sprung just yet. While it might still officially be winter that doesn’t mean that you can’t start to incorporate touches of color into your outfit and prep for the warm days ahead. I saw this Fashionista rocking the neon trend on her way back from class. The bright yellow stripes on her gray, layered sweater adds a pop of color in an unexpected way that brings a unique element to her otherwise simple outfit. While she kept her accessories simple, with an evil eye necklace and tortoise Michael Kors watch, her Tom Ford glasses and leather pieces add a chic statement to her ensemble. This Fashionista made dressing for the dreary transition months an opportunity to incorporate a bold trend in a subtle way. Neon may not be the new black, but it is the perfect remedy for spring fever!
