Today’s look is all about my love for metallic and neon, in a pink monochromatic way. Let’s just say it’s intense. I don’t know what it is about these hues that just makes me so happy. I know it can be too much for some but I honestly find metallic and neon colors the most fun to style.
For this look I did a “monochromatic” vibe a la Diana. I never do monochromatic looks. Why you ask? Let me take you back to my elementary and middle school days when my mom still dressed me. My wonderful mother is the queen of monochromatic outfits and has been rocking this trend since I met her, which is my whole life. Since my mom had full control of my closet when I was a kid she would often go in to style outfits for me to not be late for school. She would almost always match tops and bottoms that were the same color (or color family.) Little did I know that she was paving my way to an expert eye on monochromatic looks but also made me hate them for the longest time.
Shop The Look:
I remember in 7th grade I wore an outfit that was a baby blue Tommy Hilfiger top with a pair of baby blue chino shorts. I hated it. But when my closet was extremely limited at the time I didn’t have much choice. But my school counselor did compliment the look so it really wasn’t too bad.
Today I am making it my own by combining these two statement pieces together. The oversize neon pink sweater is from Fashion Nova. My only piece from Fashion Nova as I was not completely impressed by the construction of this sweater. But it still helped make one of my favorite looks of all time so I shouldn’t hate too much. The metallic skirt was a surprise find at Target. As many people I walked in for one thing, I think it was for milk or something super basic like that and I was walk in and greeted by the young women’s section this skirt was front and center on a mannequin and I was like “omg 🤯” I had seen a almost identical version at Topshop for $60 whereas this one from Target was only $19.99. I felt that pink shoes was just a no for this look, maybe it’s the little 7th grader in me saying “don’t do it” but I had to pair it up with my favorite white booties from Sam Edelman. I think it compliments the look very well. And to finish off the look with a bit more neon is the Celine Luggage Nano. So iconic.
