I would have never thought to pair pastels with neon until I saw model Hilary Rhoda wearing a soft, romantic mint- green-and-peach ensemble with a bold neon necklace. The look embraces the color trend, but in a different way than we are used to seeing. Pairing pastels with neon gives a sweet look some punch, some edge. So this week instead of exactly duplicating an expensive outfit with affordable alternatives, I thought I would use the designer outfit as inspiration and find affordable pieces that evoke the feeling of the designer ones. Etsy has some great neon statement necklaces and I thought I would spotlight some of my favorites. We all should support small businesses, I think.
