My fave thing about gingham and JC's perfect shirts? So easy-peasy to dress up - or, my favorite - dress down. I actually work this shirt already over the weekend and here's my mid-week recreation of the outfit, big hair and all:
Shorts: Old Navy chambray (similar here, as romper here)
Shoes: Tretorn evelina (similar w/bow here, -ish here)
And because I apparently had some extra time today, by not go full out? I put together my brightest pieces to create an outfit that was really in your face color-wise, but still could have half a shot at making it in day-to-day wear without getting freaked out looks from your co-workers. I even went neon-tastic with the nails.
I really wished the neon shirt photographed better - it is literally highlighter yellow bright and that is what I love love love about it! Funny cameras - the shirt came out lighter, the skirt bolder and the shoes darker. Ah well.
Skirt: Talbots washed silk full (worn here before)
Belt: J. Crew embossed (similar here)
Shoes: You by Crocs (worn here before - similar here, not sim but fab here)
Belt as Bracelet: J. Crew factory (similar here)
(Apparently my sartorial brain was on the same wavelength as MP. However, if you want to see neon REALLY done, put on your sunglasses and click here).
What's your take on neons? Do you think it's fun and flirty and "back again"? Or should they have stayed in the '80s and be relegated to the same shame self as glow-in-the-dark jewelry, Melanie Griffith circa "Working Girl" and hypercolor shirts? I know you're trying to bring those back, American Apparel, and sensibility is telling you to stop.
