She's walking on sunshine!

For today's style study, we're zooming in on Ciara Gan, a 20-year-old YouTube starlet with a gleefully sugary wardrobe. Her popularity is no mystery–she's nailed the Gen Z fixation on fusing '90s silhouettes and accessories with the giddy palette of the '60s mod. This outfit roundup will have you hankering for kaleidoscopic 'fits in no time, so if you've been afraid to wear color for as long as you can remember, let Ciara light the way! Take a look: 

1. Still not sure how you feel about color? Test the waters by wearing an all-black outfit paired with a vibrant coverup, like, say, an oversized button-down. The fuchsia socks are optional!

2. Once you're eased in, trade the coverup for a statement top. Ciara's wearing a long-sleeved shirt tiled with graphic art teamed with relaxed white jeans and yellow-tinted sunnies. Your takeaway? Style an outfit around your statement top, using its color scheme as a guide.

3. A statement top is easy enough to don, but a statement pair of pants? Oh, some might never dare, which is such a shame. You'll know you've lived a full life once you've entrusted your OOTD's center of gravity to a snazzy pant. Ciara's argyle print flared pants are dangerously fun to look at, and we've made a mental note to hunt down a similar pair.

4. As the old adage goes, diamonds are a girl's best friend. This pattern is the '90s iteration of today's IG-famous wide-tiled chessboard print. Also, we're appreciating how Ciara's referencing color theory by pairing blue with orange.

5. For laidback days, throw on a staple white tee and high waisted denim shorts. Sneak in some color with a tie-dye canvas baguette bag and matching red Chucks!

6. Teach yourself to gravitate toward green. We know, devoting a lot of OOTD surface area to this tricky hue demands an acquired taste, but green wields a sneaky power unrivalled by other colors. It's not as fiery as red, not as cooperative and universal as black, not as immediately palatable as yellow, and not as gently cool as blue. It's...something else, and its meaning differs from person to person. Green is a fashion wild card, and everyone ought to get acquainted with it.

7. This is such a fun one! Who knew that a marble print mock neck top would suit croc skin so seamlessly? We're also loving how the belt loops on her skirt are accents on their own. The details really are everything.

8. A foolproof formula for you: Denim + denim + a bright bralette. Neon pink, red, cyan, lemon, what have you. It'll look cute, we promise.

9. FYI, pairing red and green doesn't have to spell out Christmas anymore: You're free to wear any color pairing that satisfies your eyes. Ciara's avocado knitted cardigan teams nicely with her pink and red skirt, and the beaded necklace does its part in tying the whole look together!

10. Coordinate your textures like Ciara does and pair a ribbed cami with a corduroy jacket. The plaid mini skirt, too, is an adorable addition. In case you doubted her commitment to the '90s look, here's to hoping that this outfit will set the record straight.

11. Diamonds, we meet again! From this, we can glean a very current fashion fact: A mask is an accessory. We repeat: A mask is an accessory. Take pains to ensure that your mask is not only safe, but stylish as well. Load of different textures, colorways, and prints! All in all, we're loving this youthful lavender lewk!

12. The key to styling hyperpieces is having the basics to back them up. With what appears to be a hand-painted mini dress, Ciara's wearing a ribbed white turtleneck, white socks, and chunky lace-up boots. So chic!

13. Ciara seems to favor smiley faces, too– we've spotted them on her tie-dye baguette bag, as well as several of her necklaces. It's not hard to see why! The print can upend any outfit and transform it into something casual and lighthearted. (Also, peep the constrast-stitched cargo pants! Love!)

14. The comic book print makes yet another appearance! This time, however, it's in cami form with satin trimming, paired with with a white bomber jacket and high-waisted black jeans.

15. Ciara's channeling Harry Styles with this pink lemonade OOTD! Cropped sweater aficionados should invest in high-waisted pants in every imaginable color. After that, you'll be set for life.
