Summer fashion: Neon Forest

Published on: June 12th, 2012

Florescents are big this summer…but not the head-to-toe neon of the ‘80s. “With anything trendy, the key is to incorporate it in moderation,” said Liz Finkelstein, owner of and fashion consultant at Mile High Style. She styled the two outfits shown here, giving each florescent touches. “In both the day (top) and night (bottom) outfits, I played with the florescent theme, choosing the beaded necklace in what I like to call ‘highlighter yellow’ and picking up hints of the florescent spectrum in the silk IKAT tank. In both cases, they pop against a backdrop of neutral colors and classic styles.”

To incorporate florescent into the wardrobe of a fashion novice, Finkelstein says stick with accessories—a coral scarf, a necklace like the one we used (also available in coral), a ballet flat, a skinny belt. And for the expert dresser? “As far as wearability, the easiest florescent is pink,” she says. “Look for silk tops and tanks and pair with skinny jeans and an animal print heel, going minimal on any jewelry or accessories.” Learn more at
