Neon ♥'s Neutral

I've been so excited to debut this trend assignment for Bloggers Do It Better. Since Burberry Prorsum (and Jil Sander, and Max Mara...) debuted the look on its runway for S/S '11, Neon + Neutral has been on everyone's minds (I can only speak for myself, actually).

The look marries a simple neutral palette with a pop of neon color. Think colorblocking meeting the neutrals trend and having a baby together. A perfect balance, the neutral grounds the bright fluorescent color accenting the ensemble. It's a look I can't wait to have fun with this weekend. I know you will have a blast with it too!

I can't decide whether I'm going to go big with the neon, or small for a pop of color (like an accessory + nail polish + lipstick). What will you be doing?
