Color is better appreciated if it is done in moderation. A little hint in the heel or a flash at the neckline goes a long way, especially if the outfit is done in a muted palate.
The Zara blouse feels Victorian and regal which makes for an interesting marriage with the bright neon colors - typically associated with the future. This concept of old meets new through color is a trick that is seen throughout modern architecture. Certainly, buildings like the Centre Pompidou in Paris come to mind, but one of the best examples of using bright color subtly is the Neue Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart by the British Architect James Stirling. The museum is made of travertine and sandstone contrasted with an industrial green steel framing system and bright pink + blue handrails throughout. The color system was used to help navigate the visitors and assign places of importance.
