OOTD | Slime Green

Right at the beginning of a new fashion season magazines and fashion websites alike tend to shower us with trends' lists for the weeks to come and, admittedly, these do come in pretty handy for us non-fashion professionals that lack the time to review every single look from every single show, yet still wish to look fresh and up to date. And while most of these lists agree on the mega trends ("plaid", "oversized outerwear", "mini bags" etc), there's the oddball that few, if any, can envision getting traction.

Lime green is a prime example: it may have first entered our radar along with the rest of the fluorescent brights during the Spring and Fall 2018 catwalks, but it wasn't until the Kardashian-Jenner family wore the shade last summer that it became a covetable trend. And, as I'm sure most of you have noticed through your IG feeds by now, this electric hue, reminiscent of Nickelodeon slime, that ranges between neon yellow/green and bright chartreuse, has expanded big time, so much so that the experts are deeming it one of the hottest trends for 2019.

Now, unless you know me or have ever met me in person, you wouldn't be able to tell how out-of-character wearing a neon shade is for me: trust me when I say that 90% of my outfits are a combination of black, grey, denim blue, neutrals and the occasional white. Yet, somehow, lime green drew me in: it has that cool early 90's vibe, as well as the ability to brighten up the gloomiest and dreariest of days.

The sweater dress I'm wearing today is by Femme Luxe, and although I wouldn't wear it on its own without the risk of revealing way too much, I love its layering potential. I decided to pair it with some simple flared trousers, but I'm also looking forward to wear it over a midi skirt or just some skinny jeans with a belt to accentuate the waist. And since I'm making an effort to up my fashion game this year, I wanted to avoid a total black canvas - hence, the edgier details: shiny vinyl, exposed zippers and my recently acquired white western boots, which I figured matched the level of the neon brightness without outshining it (pun intended).

I'll admit I expected a chunkier knit at first, but on second thought I'm glad it isn't so I can get a lot more wear out of it all throughout spring (perhaps with cycling shorts anyone?). Sizing is also true to size: I ordered the SM (8/10) and it fits comfortably on my UK 8 figure, without any unwanted tightness, tugging or pulling. And if this particular style of lime isn't cutting it for you, trust me, there's a few more to pick from, here

All in all, I was very pleased with my first experience with Femme Luxe and I would easily recommend them if you're looking to update your wardrobe with some trendy (and equally as instagrammable) pieces.
