A Style Explosion: Fireworks-Effect Duds

When my sister was little, she used to call fireworks ‘Skittles.’ I’m guessing it had to do with the dazzling expanse of rainbow dots the pyrotechnics produced, which, let’s face it, is a breathtaking sight for anyone, whether you’re a silly 5-year-old or a serious septuagenarian. So, what better to draw wardrobe inspiration from?

The picks above, leaping with color and bursting with lines that mimic the slow fall of hissing neon embers, capture fireworks’ awe-inspiring aesthetic; wear any of them for an ensemble that goes over with a bang, no matter the time of year.

About Hannah

"Q: Where do cantaloupes go for the summer? A: John Cougar Mellon Camp!" From that joke you can surmise a few things about Hannah -- she loves a good pun, she delights in irreverence, and red peppers are her vegetable of choice. How does one figure out Hannah loves red peppers from that joke? Hmm, that's top secret. Hannah also adores outdoor activities, arts & crafts, reading, and being abroad.

    I’m usually not a fan of this sort of pattern and color combination, but I really love this!

    I was surprised to see that I actually own silver versions of those bottom gold earrings. I got them from a lady selling vintage jewelry at a swap meet in Florida for like 3 bucks. And I can’t wait for the 4th. It’s fun to dress up in red, white ‘n blue!

    There’s something very flapperific about that purse.
