For the second installment of my homage to pink and its many moods, flavors, and attitudes, I’m paying attention to a shade that’s impossible to ignore. Neon pink is at once the feistiest and girliest color there is. As delightfully contradictory as the women who wear them, statement pieces don’t get any bolder than in scalding-hot neon pink.
Just make you do it right; you want to look strong, not like a little girl gone wild. A single pop is all you want – and need – to make an impact. This season, I’m taking mine with an unapologetic air of luxury. Soft leathers, breezy fabrics, rich texture, and a little bit of lace give neon pink the sophistication it requires.
