Summer is such an extroverted season that it’s sometimes daunting to go all out with color. So, we asked our uber-talented stylist Vega to help all of us out with some tips and tricks to make the most of this colorful season.

A fashion stylist since 2007, Vega has lent her expertise covering fashion for Elle Magazine in Indonesia and has worked with top fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon (remember that Project Runway spiel? Yes, that Gilles Bensimon).
Without further ado, here’s what Vega had to say about our latest colorful collection:
What three words describe the summer collection?
Fun, Chic & Playful.
If the summer collection was distilled into one object, what would it be?
It’s like things that you can find in an amusement park. The colorful and striped pattern on some of the pieces remind me of a lollipop. This summer collection is just so playful and catchy!
Did you have any problems styling this collection
No problems at all. In fact, it was a pleasure because every look that Poketo has is really easy to mix and match.
That’s great! Could you share with us some tips on how you put together these outfits?
By biggest tip is don’t be afraid to pair up and feel free to express the look. Summer is the best time to be creative.
People might be intimidated wearing the Sunburst tunic, but you should go for it. Put a tube top or tank top on the inside, the small holes give people a tantalizing glimpse of color that perfectly offsets the top’s neutral color palette.
Last, but definitely not least, just have some fun!
What’s your favorite pieces in the collection?
The Flutterby dress. It has a great ruffle detail on the shoulder all the way to the back side. It really adds character to the dress.
The A Different Stripes Dress. I really like the striped pattern on it. It reminds me of new waves on the sea.
How would you wear those pieces in real life?
I would wear the Flutterby Dress with a simple long thin necklace and a pair of red flat shoes to add some color.
For A Different Stripe Dress, I’ll just put my summer hat on and some sandals, and I’m ready to hit the beach!
What other wardrobe additions would you recommend this season?
The straw hat is really hip this summer and it’s really easy to mix and match.
Two other big things this summer are white and bright neon colors. For example, put the Pink Lemonade tank with a pair of white shorts. That’s a winner right there.
Don’t forget to pick comfortable fabrics and accessories for this sunny season and you’re ready to get your summer started.
