Remember a couple posts back when I was discussing my obsession about neon? Well, I think it's obvious now! I have been seeking to obtain more oranges in my wardrobe (as I have such a strong affection for the HUE and it's not always easy to find!) and came across this skirt in Topshop the other day and just had to own it. (There are actually TWO optional lengths- one here and one here ). Seriously, the skirt was begging me to buy it. Naturally, I gave in.
I will point out the obvious. Not too many people would want to wear this much bold color at once. That is were I am different. When putting this outfit together, my starting point was my striped wedges. Although they are not the same shade of orange as the skirt, I think they're brilliant and marvelous. Besides I don't like matchy-matchy looks all the time. As mentioned previously, I am a sucker for tone-on-tone styling. Here I have managed that with the blues. Notice the cobalt blue against the navy suede wedge, and on top, notice the sky blue jumper against the cobalt/royal-ish blue snood.
I am already thinking about how to style this skirt next time. I would love to pair it with black & white to give it a crisp look with either a patterned tight (this idea came from my hubs- THANKS babe- positively genius!) or lace hosiery.
So, what do you all think? Too much color for you? How would you style this fantastically bright orange skirt differently?
