For those of us in NYC, the winter can be very long, very cold, and very depressing. Growing up in South Florida, winter meant a low of 50 degrees, and you just didn’t go to the beach. My first winter in NYC was a very confusing experience. The skies were dark, and everyone wore dark clothes. It was then and there that I decided I would wear bright colors year round- regardless of the temperature outside.

Luckily for me, this year, neons are still available in stores even in the winter. Every store you go in from Forever21 to Bergdorf Goodman is selling bright, beautiful colors.With all of the sales going on right now, you can score some winter wonders at a great price, and make sure you are still warm and bright right until the last snowflake falls this winter.

Regardless of the popular trend (and where you live), I think you should always wear something colorful especially when the skies are so gloomy. I truly believe that the best way to fight the winter blues is to be your own ray of sunlight (and who knows, maybe you will be someone else’s too)!
