When you think of neon, "sophisticated" might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Perhaps instead you envision a pack frat boys, terribly pleased with themselves for wearing the playful hue ironically. Or that excellent #tbt pic of you hitting the bunny hill for the first time, impossibly puffy and immobile decked in early 90's ski gear.
But don't let those visions cloud your judgement. Neon can be shockingly sophisticated and totally sexy if you know how to wear it! Take a cue from my gal Gigi, and keep the look clean, solid and monochromatic. Need I mention how good these colors look with a tan?? I thought not. Skip the temptation to add more color and texture, opting instead for crisp, white accessories. A totally hot look for summer, and a perfect way to bring that energy and sexiness into the fall!

This week, I accompanied Gigi on a super secret trip to NYC! I can't share what we were working on, but I can hook you up with outfit deets from this killer look Mz. Gorgeous rocked while there!
I styled her in a House of CB skirt, a Boohoo long sleeve bodysuit, and her own August Getty Atelier organza sheer jacket. Her white nails and matching white Fendi bag completed the look with through-the-roof levels of CHIC.
Fancy this outfit for yourself? Why wouldn't you, you smart, sophisticated lady you. See below for my suggestions how to put the look together with a slightly smaller budget, but just as much CHIC.
