Tame Your Neons with Neutrals

Jessica Alba demonstrates how adding beige, mocha or gray to acidic yellow prevents the color from washing out your complexion.

Since Jordin Sparks -- one of our top contenders for America’s sweetheart -- wore this Yigal Azrouel number last May, half of Hollywood has copied her neon yellow-plus-neutral strategy.

Aussie actress Phoebe Tonkin reverses the formula perfected by Alba and Sparks by using a neon yellow accent to wake up a gray dress. Try the same trick with your own neutrals -- what woman doesn’t have a closet full of ‘em?
