Hi everyone! As you know if you have been following my blog you may have picked up that I love bright and fun colors whether it is neon, metallic/ holographic, jewel tone; basically any color that has a strong hue to it. I am in love with clothing and accessories that come in these strong hues and often get asked how to pull off these items. For me it comes as second nature, when I walk into a store I automatically get drawn to the intense colors and ideas for outfits start flowing into my mind. But I do understand that neon and metallic colored items are very scary and intimated if you’re not used to wearing these colors. 

Here are some simple tips to go by if you one day are wanting to try out a holographic skirt:

  • Try a skirt with a subtle hint of holographic (like this skirt)
  • Make sure the skirt is just above the knee to keep it classy
  • Keep everything else neutral
  • It’s best to wear the skirt with staple items, let the skirt be the fashion forward/ trendy piece
  • Make the neutral clothing overpower the skirt, in my outfit I’m wearing all black except the skirt so by wearing the long sweater and long trench the skirt is not the main focal point

I hope these tips help you out if you’ve been wanting to try out this trend!!
