Today’s tip from stylist extraordinaire Lani Rosenstock Inlander is all about color blocking. This summer trend is best when it’s way-bright, and bold, all the better to show off killer tan. And this trend is the province of color bright Funs and some Organic Freedoms, but everyone can get on the “fun” with a few key accessories.

Blogger Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere has the color block trend down perfect in the photo the the left. Her orange top and hot pink skirt are just the thing to make a statement that everyone will love. With an under stated neutral jacket and shoes this outfitter is great for being showy but not too showy. Whereas the purse takes the whole things to another level of perfection.

If you want to start slow, however, this Asos clutch is perfect because not only does it have a pop of hot pinkbut also has a nice neutral to balance it out. If you’re looking for a more bold finishing touching these color block high heeled sandals from Xana are exactly what you need and just so happen to go together perfectly.  These too pieces can be added to a bold colorful outfit or simply add a hint of color to a dull one that needs some sprucing.
