What made you try this trend?
I've always been a lover of color. It never fails to brighten up your look. Plus, it's much more fun to mix and match different colors. There's so much you can do with this trend, it'll never be boring.
How do you build your outfit around it?
Out of all the neons and brights popping out this season, orange is my number one shade, so I built my look from there. I just had to wear something orange.
How do you style it to make the look your own?
This is such a difficult question because I think anytime you personally put something together; it just comes natural how you make it your own. It's always so hard to dissect your own look. So I guess just by going for what I think looks best with my body and my skin tone, I was able to make it my own.
How do you balance your look to avoid making it look over-the-top?
You just have to know when to stop piling on things. For me, I went for a paler pink blazer to tone the colors down a little bit.
How do you accessorize the color-blocking trend?
I went for colored bracelets, but nothing as bright as my clothes.
Can you give tips on how to wear this trend?
If you're unsure of which colors to mix, stick to the common combos first, two colors at a time. Try pairing any two colors from this group: pink, orange, green, blue, and yellow—all in their strong and bold shades.
How would you wear it during the day, night, to the beach, to a party, to work, etc.?
For day: Something bright and short.
For night: I'll use darker shades of the colors.
For the beach: A cropped top with a flowy maxi skirt.
For a party: Maybe add a few sparkly accessories.
For the workplace: Three-fourths sleeved top with knee-length pencil skirt.
