Cute color block looks

When you're feeling fashionably fickle and can't decide on one color, why not choose two or three? The style mavens at SheKnows are currently crushing on color block. That's right, we're racking up summer crushes like there's no tomorrow and this one is our latest style obsession. We've come up with some color block must-haves for making a fun style statement this summer. Check out our list of pretty picks.

Cute color block looks

5. Sandals (Mod Cloth, $135), 6. Tank (, $30),
7. Dress (BCBGMAXAZRIA, $178), 8. Skirt (Anthropologie, $148)

5Color wheel wedge

We couldn't help but smile immediately upon spying these adorable sandals in blocks of some of our favorite summery shades (Mod Cloth, $135). Orange, yellow, blue and hot pink blocks sit atop a bright white background for an eye-catching look we love.

6Skinny strap tank

Take a break from solid color tank tops and instead rock this playful lightweight style (, $30) with a soft beige background and vibrant color block stripes in turquoise and coral. Wear it alone with cute cropped shorts or tuck into high waisted trousers for a more polished summer look.

7Nod to neutrals

As much as we love an eye-popping palette, we also have a soft spot for neutrals, which is why we took note of this sleek, sleeveless dress in bias color blocked panels of black, taupe and earthy beige (BCBGMAXAZRIA, $178). We love the relaxed fit and easy-wearing vibe of this dazzling dress.

8Sorbet skirt

Punch up your summer office attire with this workplace friendly pencil skirt (Anthropologie, $148) patterned in bright, sorbet-hued color blocks of pink and other bright panels that make this a standout addition to your wardrobe. Pair with a neutral short-sleeved blouse, stacked heels, add a cropped cardigan and you're ready for anything the day throws at you.
