My Style

Don’t be scared: wear bright colors!

When I put together an outfit, many times I opt for wearing one pop of color. But why not kick it up a notch with more than one? It can be done!

I love how purple and green look together, so pairing them for a tee and shorts combo seemed to be a no-brainer. Color blocking can be a fun way to experiment with new color combinations you wouldn’t normally think of, and sometimes the contrast can turn into something awesome (orange and pink…purple and red…).

It’s a good way to get set for the summer season, wouldn’t you say? And there are so many options to consider. To show you what I mean, I paired the same tee and shorts I am wearing today in three other color options – take your pick!
