muted color paletteWell, in case you were wondering, neon is a HUGE trend for summer.  So huge, in fact, that I’m already over it.  Having arrived back in New York, I could not believe how much neon I saw on the gorgeous girls of Manhattan.  It wasn’t just a matter of a bright sighting here and there… It was more like packs of girls who looked like a pack of highlighters.  Each lovely lady clad in a dayglow shade.  Well, I knew I’d had enough when I, myself, was sporting a tank top as bright as the highlighted passages in my summer reading.  Everywhere I looked, someone else was wearing a similar style.  I wanted to hide, but it’s awfully difficult to be inconspicuous when sunglasses are needed just to take a gander in my direction.

So what better antidote to neon than the muted shades of a summer sky?  For once, being subdued will be what makes you stand out.
