OOTD | OCTAHEDRON

sheer blouse, black booties, dodecahedron earrings & sunglasses | FOREVER 21
neon orange dress | NASTYGAL 


Neon colors scream attention in a good way. I love the pop of color a neon piece brings to an outfit because it becomes a fashion statement. However too much neon at once can be overpowering. That is why I paired this neon orange dress with a sheer black blouse.

The first time I tried on this dress alone for my mom to see she remarked, "Are you going out of the house like that?" and that was it for me I knew this color alone would not cut it. Now whenever I wear this dress I have to contrast it with other pieces and oooh does it look much better.

 Not all colors work on my skin and by adding this black blouse it tones down this dress while still giving off enough of its neon light.

Do you rock neon colors?

Love,
Sheyla ♥

    1. Yes exactly! I love the neon yellow as well but I just own it as a bag color is hard to pull it off wearing it. I see what you did there with the denim vest. Nice tip ;)

  4. Wow this dress is very bright, I love it! You rocked it, and I agree that it's better to tone it down with something darker! Well done :)
