Okay, now get that ‘old man’s Hawaiian shirt’ comment out of your mind and give this look a try. After all helps put this look together, yes, but to be completely honest this whole look started with the neon skirt. The shoes and other accessories came after. I was aiming for a look that screams paradise and island chic — the earrings though gold are shaped somewhat like a shell that one might found washed up on the shore. The shoes were an added pop of color because you really cannot have too many colors on in the summer. It’s SUMMER! It’s HOT! The colors are HOT – relationship, acquired.I plan to take a trip to paradise (anywhere free of work, with sand, water, drinks and good people) so until I go, why not dress the part?
Random Tip: Wanna look like summer add neon colors to your wardrobe. Hey, you can even try it on your lips — Orange is not just the new black, in fact, it is one of the most popular and boldest oranges of the summer.
Let your stylish animal out! Most wardrobes for springtime are filled with pastel colors but I wanted spice it up with some bolder patterns, prints and as always–color. Most of the color choices that I used in this outfit would be compared to the summer, but the white coat makes this look what I like to call “season-flexible.” It’s season-flexible because you can wear this outfit in the spring with pale or nude heels, and then in the summer with sandals (wedges – optional). I titled this look the concrete jungle because each article of clothing represents an animal or thing that can be found in the jungle and I’m a NYC girl, of course! Plus, the pants alone would make one feel like they were in a tropic jungle.
Random Tip: Let other surroundings inspire you. It could be the jungle or the desert or even an fuzzy friend (tigers, lion, etc.) You would be surprise with the looks you can create.
