What’s black & white & me all over? (Yes, I think I may have used a similar joke like that before, but whatever, it’s my blog & IdowhatIwant!)
As I’ve said in the past, I’m a big fan of clashing/matching prints. (Clamashing? Clatching? Mashing? ….I guess mashing is a word already, so we’ll go with that.) And with a intensely patterned black & white dress (with neon green piping), it was just natural to pair a black & white zebra print belt, neon green & snake print platform heels, neon shades, neon necklace & a neon bag.
While it sounds like a lot of neon, the black & white dress grounds the bright colors and prevents them from overpowering the entire look. Personally, I love neon & have no problem wearing an bold neon-centric look, but most people are not comfortable doing so.
If I can ever impart any fashion wisdom on you it would be this, try things. Put colors together you think shouldn’t go, put two (or more) busy patterns together, wear neon, wear white, wear stripes, wear everything that people say big girls can’t wear. Screw ‘em.
