There’s something about the arrival of summer that has us reaching for our brightest brights without hesitation. With so many shades tempting us, why settle for a monochromatic look this season? Scroll through for the 411 on embracing color blocking like a BOSS.
Ban.do Sailor Tee in Red/Chambray ($48):
Oh, you lucky sailor, you. Of course there’s a nautical-inspired tee that pays testament to your yachting party ways. Although, don't be mistaken — no boat required to live your BEST life.
Marc Jacobs Purple Astor Jogger Sneakers ($295):
Like "whoa" is right. These color-block trainers — complete with a glittery lightning bolt, no less — are unapologetically ‘80s, and we’re not even mad about it.
Katy Perry The Liz ($99):
File these babies under “what to pack for a secret getaway along the Bimini coast," please and thanks.
MDS Stripes Colorblock Shift Dress ($495):
Cue the firecrackers: Come the Fourth, you'll be looking borderline fierce in this preppy sunset-inspired shift that’s not messing around one bit.
Cynthia Rowley Colorblock Wetsuit ($235):
Major shark bait, right this way. Catch the waves in style with this surf-inspired wetsuit featuring well-placed color-block panels and a whole lotta YAS.
ASOS Oversized Hoodie Dress in Color Block ($56):
What's a low-key hang sesh without a comfy-casual sweatshirt dress (AKA, not a snuggie) that just so happens to incorporate epic color blocking (we see you, Tumblr pink)?
Tictail Color Block Tee ($14):
Have you ever spotted an oversized tee with this much cool-girl flair? That yellow pocket is straight-up bananas.
