Keia in Green & Blue
Keia didn't have to come for us like this. We are glad she did though because she is giving all the inspo! Centering your color combo around your sneakers is a surefire way to get the job done. Try finding some colorful kicks and then choose your top and bottom based on the dominant colors. Don't doubt yourself, you got this!
Kimberly in Pink & Yellow
The vibrance of pink and yellow will brighten up any room. Kimberly kept it simple but chic by using both colors to make a bold statement. The classic tunic can be found in almost any store and you can find similar trousers in a thrift store. If you're looking to go the extra mile, try getting your trousers tailored to create a sophisticated look.
Maya in Green & White
This one is for the minimalist. Neutral colors are your best friend but we want to challenge you to play around with your signature palette. Take Maya for example, she used the bright white top to embolden the dark green coordinate set. White can be paired with literally anything so you'll always look put together when rocking it with a not-so-safe color.
Temmiy in Blue & Orange
Blue and orange are extremely complementary colors and Temmiy is the proof. At this point, it's go bold or go home. This digital creator is wearing a custom-made two-piece that deserves to be adored. Between the symmetry and synchronicity of the hues, I would wear this getup to every function.
Morrinah in Yellow & Black
Back in the day, Wiz Khalifa had us singing "Black and Yellow" religiously and now Morrinah has us ready to buy all the black and yellow off of the racks. By simply using a contrasting color for accessories, the D.C. blogger mastered pairing opposing colors and making them look like they were pre-destined.
Madeleine in Purple & Green
Is it us or does this combination surprise you? How is it so fly? We believe it's because it looks very similar to nature and flowers. The aesthetic is refreshing and polished – just the way Madeleine likes it. She loves a good suit and this one is giving what it's supposed to had gave with the pop of green. Suits are a feasible way to transition into color blocking because the suit is doing the heavy lifting.
Sharron in Blue, Pink & Yellow
Three colors are better than two! Sharron is one of the queens of color combos. She manages to make it look so effortless. It's clear that she truly believes in showing off her bold, colorful, edgy style. The fashionista loves to encourage women to step out of their comfort zone to discover their very best, most powerful selves. Looking for a way to take risks? Grab some colorful bottoms and then select three popping colors from the print for your top, shoes, and accessories. And just like that, you have a vacation-ready outfit.
Zamar in Black & Lime
If overstood the assignment was a person, it would be Zamar. The luxury pieces are giving us all the feels as our house believes Black women deserve all the luxury. Adding texture to your shade fusion is a stylish option when trying this trend. Zamar's crocodile skin boots and jacket elevate the simplicity of the bodysuit and printed shorts. There's something about the lively lime and the seductive black that makes it fuego.
Sade in Pink & Green
You don't have to be an AKA to don pink and green. It's also a brilliant doublet that looks stunning during the warmer seasons. It's fun, flirty, and all types of trendy. Even fashion houses like Moschino appreciate the power of pink and green. Sade gave us various shades of green and pink and we can't get enough. She layered the shades of this look beautifully.
