Color block maxi

Budget-friendly color block

Color block is showing no signs of leaving the style spotlight. We’ve seen it thrive for several seasons and it’s still a mainstay for spring and summer. One of our favorite ways to sport the look is with a dress and we managed to find five cute color block frocks – all for under $100.

Make it a midi

We love, love, love this bold color block midi dress in juicy berry hues (bloomingdales.com, $43). Just try not to smile as you slip it on and admire yourself in the mirror. The scoop neck, sleeveless dress screams easy summer elegance and it can be easily dressed up (heels, statement necklace) or down (flats and a straw tote).

color block strapless dress

Cute & casual

Stay cool but look hot in this hammered satin color block strapless dress with color block panels at the bust (charlotterusse.com, $33). The elasticized waist is cinched with a cute braided belt and we especially love that this frock has pockets. Pair with a cropped denim jacket and strappy sandals for an effortlessly sexy summer look.

I'm really mixed on my feelings towards color blocking. I think it can be really stylish, and it can be a huge disaster! I love the midi dress and the cute and casual dress. I really think that they can stand the test of time. The others, I'm definitely not sold on!
