Please explain to our readers about your style using this year's color, Viva Magenta (Pantone 18-1750).
Viva Magenta is a dark pink that gives a strong feeling. As soon as I saw this color, I thought it looked like a socially uncluttered color. Based on this thought, I consider this color as the freedom to not care about the gaze of others and representing the concept of my style. Therefore, I wore a Viva Magenta beanie and wide pants that are often seen in street fashion as symbolizing freedom. My shoes are active sneakers. For my top, I originally planned to wear an oversized long-sleeved T-shirt, but when I tried it on, I felt like its style was that of a college student during the exam period. I changed the length of the top because I felt that a student during the exam period feels burdened rather than freedom.
If you have your own styling method using pop colors, please explain to our readers.
I have two ways of using pop colors. The first is when only a small amount of pop color is used, and the second is when a pop color is used all over. In the former case, a pop color is mainly used for accessories including hats, hair ties, or bags. Sometimes, when using colors that are often used in cosmetics, such as red, purple, or black, I can also use lipstick or shadow as a pop color. In the second case, when I use pop colors in general, I use them for my outfit. The first step is to find the base color that matches the pop color. I usually look for black and white, and I coordinate my outfit based on these two colors.
