Bright beach tote

We can think of no better way to hit the beach in style than with this ultra-bold, bead-embroidered tote (, $80). The cool, candy-inspired hues, ample space and handy inner pockets make this a summertime must.

Cork heel

You’re guaranteed to turn heads with every step in these vibrant candy-colored cork heel platform sandals (, $115). The eye-catching Jeffrey Campbell cuties are perfect for days (or nights) where you feel like going bold. Pair with anything from cut-offs to your favorite little white dress for get-noticed summer style.

Floral frock

No summer wardrobe is complete without at least a few easy-wearing dresses. We’ll be adding to our (admittedly) large collection with this simple but stylish sundress in an all-over bright floral pattern (, $50). The vibrant tank dress features a veritable bouquet of colorful blooms atop a pretty mint background.

Spike necklace

Make a bold summer statement with this attention-grabbing Kenneth Jay Lane statement necklace featuring a series of turquoise spikes (, $70). Wear this high-octane accessory with any outfit that needs a burst of color.

Vibrant V-neck

Brighten up any outfit (and your day) as soon as you slip on this bright yellow V-neck tee (, $75). We’ll be pairing ours with cropped skinny jeans in gray or even wearing it with a sleek pencil skirt to brighten up our at-work look.

Cute capri jeans

Go bold on the bottom with this pair of cute capri jeans in an eye-popping shade of electric blue (, $27). The bright blue jeans make a fun summer statement and pair well with fitted tees in white or pastel and any footwear that suits your fancy. We’re partial to wedge heels but ballet flats would look just as good.
