Everyone (and every thing) deserves a second chance. Take some of this summer's hottest trends; namely, fluorescent brights, printed shorts and the mullet skirt (yes, you read that right..the mullet skirt, aka. the short-long). When all 3 trends surfaced earlier this season, I instantly dismissed them. After all, neon reminds me of the '80s (in a bad way), while on principle alone, I avoid ALL things mullet (insert shudder here). Fast forward a few months and I've now introduced all 3 trends into my closet. And you know what? I love the out-of-the-box results, mullet skirts and all. Check out 3 easy ways to rock some of this summer's top trends. I went on and on last week so this time, I'm going to let the pictures do all the talking...
Hope you're having the best summer ever!
