Neon Green with Envy in Reality

Fashion, Reality, Style

I love a t-shirt with a seemingly meaningless symbol (though this one makes me think of Pink Floyd…anybody else?) It exudes an “I don’t care” attitude that so many well dressed people seem to possess. The heels don’t hurt either. 4 inch strappies with no platform that preferably have some shiny metal on them, are hot. Platforms are so 2011, and also very painful. So lose the stilts and throw on a pair of these. I find them equally as torturous, but if you’re going to be in pain, why not be in good shoes too.

COZBEST jacket $81 / CHEAP MONDAY jeans $90 / FOREVER 21 tank $15 / ASOS heels $79 / ATMOS&HERE bag $63 / DOROTHY PERKINS ring $11 / RIVER ISLAND necklace $19 / ASOS sunglasses $21

The jacket adds a pop of color, just like the Antonio Berardi blazer did in the luxury version of this look. The subtle jewelry is key to looking chic. You can’t look sleek with frilly jewels hanging everywhere, unless they’re really expensive nice. Instead stick to clean lines. Think modern and metallic. And again, the black and white motif really ups the trend factor. Of course, there is that pop of neon…seems I just couldn’t help myself. Here are 7 of my favorite black and white pieces for under $100:

1. H&M dress $32 / 2. NASTY GAL jeans $75 / 3. NASTY GAL maxi skirt $58 / 4. ALIAS MAE wedges $80 / 5. BARDOT crop top $53 / 6. MOTEL skirt $44 / 7. CHIC NOVA t-shirt $44

The maxi skirt gets even better once you put it on. The white stripe is bordered by zippers that can make one or two slits:

The versatility of this skirt makes it my favorite piece under $100, though the Bardot crop top is a close second. Which is your favorite?
