This Quirky Architect Has A Serious Eye For C-O-L-O-R

Life is a bowl of Fruit Loops for Monling Lee. Not only does the D.C. architect scout and photograph her colorfully diverse surroundings, she's fusing that same ROYGBIV attitude into her wardrobe, too. A quick glance at Lee's Instagram, @monlinglee, will yield more cherry red, majestic purple, and lime green clothing than you ever knew existed. In fact, we're pretty sure black is banished from this lady's sartorial repertoire altogether. And, in this particular case, we say good riddance.
Dig her style? Lee's "the brighter, the better" motto may be the impetus your closet needs to liven up its summer palette. Think cobalt blues, electric yellows, and hot pinks — then follow her 'grams for plenty of clever styling cues. Fast forward to view our favorite outfits and shop similar pieces, too.
