Street Style: Neon Hoodie

Neon Hoodie,, absolute victory everyday

Oh don’t mind me, I’m just out here trying to be low-key in this highlighter yellow hoodie, Ha! This winter season I wanted step away from wearing the usual “winter” colors (black, gray & navy) that most people tend to gravitate to. Bright colors are my friend and in my humble opinion, wearing bright colors in the wintertime is a fashion statement to-do.

Incorporating neon hues like this neon hoodie and other eye-catching colors like tangerine orange, brazen blue, lime green or hot pink into your #OOTD may seem a bit much, but it’s definitely doable. But if you don’t think you can get away with actually wearing these vibrant colors, instead think smaller pieces like maybe your shoes or accessories.

If you are feeling brave, take a risk and go overboard, like I did in this neon monochrome ensemble. Btw, you can grab this hoodie from my homeboy >>> AVE - Absolute Victory Everyday or on IG: Absoloutevictoryeveryday.

Wearing One Color Is Anything But Boring!

Mastering the art of a monochromatic look is really quite simple. I’ll even go as far as saying it’s easier than putting together a mixed print or color-block look. And you can undoubtedly put a one color-coordinated outfit together in no time with pieces you already have in your closet.

But what is a monochrome look? I’m glad you asked - In the fashion world it’s when your outfit consists of either wearing a combination of black and white or separates of one color and/or varying tones of a color (now that’s a mouth full).

When you think about a monochrome look, think all black or different shades of off-white. Even during the winter season don’t shy away from making a statement with bold colors like this mustard top and bottom number or this orange getup. Let’s not forget my all time fave monochrome combo black and white.

The next time you’re standing in front of your closet trying to decide what to wear consider pairing pieces within the same color hue together for a chic and trendy look. Have you tried this trend? If so, what’s your go-to single outfit color to wear?

Bright Colors In Fall

Hi Stylenista's

My weekend was full of fun and fashion.  Saturday I volunteered at the Thrifting Atlanta Fashion Swap.  I enjoyed working behind the scenes with a few of my thriftsisters.

My look for this event was inspired by a pair of oh so fab color block/mixed print shoes.  When I saw these shoes I wasted no time placing my order.  When they came, I knew that I needed to wear them before the weather cooled down.  My headwrap was a result of me running behind and not having enough time to wrap it the way I meant to.  This wrap style was completely unintentional, but oh I killed it (in my Lil Terio voice).

Outfit Details
Top - Park Ave Thrift - $3.00
DIY Jeans - St. Vincent de Paul - $5.00
Headwrap (scarf) - H&M - $6.90
Shoes - Makemechic - $31.00
