The Trend: Brights
Bright colors popped on the s/s 2011 runway. You can be seen coming from a mile away sporting colors like these. Nothing wrong with that I say. But for those of you that are fearful of looking like a walking highlighter, try wearing a bright statement piece with other nude pieces to tone it down. To represent this trend I found a great Jones New York top in a yellow-orange color (worn backwards in the before pics - woops!). Like my last project, it had shoulder pads that made me feel like a linebacker so I ended up taking them out. I also chopped off the sleeves and created something like a racerback top. I liked the original shape if the collar, so I kept it. I wore it with a pair of skinny jeans & my fave pair of shoes. Enjoy the rest of your week! -C.C.
