Tame Your Neons with Neutrals
Jessica Alba demonstrates how adding beige, mocha or gray to acidic yellow prevents the color from washing out your complexion.
Since Jordin Sparks -- one of our top contenders for America’s sweetheart -- wore this Yigal Azrouel number last May, half of Hollywood has copied her neon yellow-plus-neutral strategy.
Aussie actress Phoebe Tonkin reverses the formula perfected by Alba and Sparks by using a neon yellow accent to wake up a gray dress. Try the same trick with your own neutrals -- what woman doesn’t have a closet full of ‘em?
What do you wear to Versailles? If you’re fashion risk-taker Claire Danes, you opt for tiers of neon yellow -- tempered by beige to keep the look from skewing too citric acid.
