This cardigan combines the best thing about fall fashion (slouchy cardigans!) with the best thing about summer fashion (bright colors!), which makes it the perfect transition piece to bridge the seasons. I’d love to throw it on over jersey dresses or dark denim skinny jeans and flats–pretty sure I’d find a way to wear this baby pretty much every day. [$90, J.Crew]
Suddenly, it seems like hot pink is everywhere! It’s super summer-appropriate, and we’re into it, but it’s also an easy color to get wrong. If you’re not careful, hot pink can make you look ho-riffic. So we suggest you pair your hot pink with neutral colors and conservative pieces.

We like the tough and femme vibe Gisselle Rousseau, a Chilean language teacher, has got going on. Gisselle, 26, pairs a cute hot pink tunic from Jirafita In with punky Zibel Morados. (Fun fact: Zibel is an accessory line started by Ivan Zan Modano, a Chilean soccer player). Gisselle’s quilted purse was a gift, but we wish we could buy her killer blue-black blunt bangs.

Neon has dominated nail polish for the last several summers. This year is no different. While we’re glad Essie is back with another bright collection this year, we’re on the lookout for new ways to infuse punchy colors.

My friend Sarah and I are obsessed with neon nails. I have to give Sarah a little credit though, because she started wearing hot pink as her signature nail color way before any of us had even heard of Rihanna — back then, that girl was still singing “Hero” in Barbados. So, day-glo polish is awesome, but the problem with them is that they’re usually cheap (I bought mine at Claire’s) and therefore require you to apply three coats, and then, the polish chips off in a day. Starting in June, however, both Essie and Chanel will offer high-quality neon nails. This is wonderful news for those of us who are too old to be shopping for beauty products in a store that sells fuzzy Cheetah Girls headbands. [Chic & Untroubled]
