Another beautiful (if still cold) week here in NYC, the home of exorbitant rents and excellent pizza. In this post I am giving the #threewaystowear treatment to a daring neon green ballerina-length skirt. I bought it from a questionable chinese website (which I won't mention here in case at some point down the road they wish to sponsor me - gimme dat Yuan!) and was unsure what it would be like when it arrived. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I mean sure, if I get anywhere near an open flame it's all over, but the colour is fierce. So here we are. Enjoy!

#1 Pair with a black top and shoes to really highlight that shocking neon. Compliment the skirt with bold jewellery. If you don't want people to look at you and for a fabulous gay man to yell "yass girl" on 11th street during a photo-shoot, then don't wear this. Otherwise strut around in this ensemble and rule the world.
#2 Think neon can't be cute? Think again. Pair it with a gingham blouse and some vintage shoes and you're ready for a punk rock production of Carousel.
#3 For a more work-safe look, style with a cute shirt and a fitted jacket. A dear friend of mine, Stewart Charlesworth, always used to say to me "the bigger the hair, the smaller the waist", but in this instance I think 'the bigger the skirt, the smaller the waist", with that in mind throw over a statement belt too - it will accentuate the narrowest part of your body.
