When Cory, Noriko and I discussed a post on how we style brights, I didn’t really know what I was going to say. See, I don’t really wear brights.

In fact, when shopping recently with a friend, I’ve discovered that my fashion sense is pretty conservative. I don’t like prints, bright colors, or embellishments. I’m just boring. One exception would be blue, for which I like pretty much any shade.

But, with the help of my fellow designers, I realized that I actually *do* have my own way of styling brights: Little pops of bright color with mostly grey or black.

I’m also ok with bright accessories, like the laces on my super cute Sambas.

And I wear bright colors for safety – like when I wear my neon yellow hat and carry my neon yellow clipboard to lead evacuations at work.

Stylish, no?

Taking these things into consideration, it makes perfect sense that my neon is blue and that I’m designing socks. Using my favorite color and keeping my design to a small accessory will allow me to wear it even if I’m not very comfortable with bright colors in general.
