I think that is why I lean towards color-block choices for my summer wardrobe. Summer neutrals are a classic, and they're so versatile, going from morning to night with ease. No worries about mixing and matching while traveling either. The main thing about neutrals is the fact that they often look casual or sporty, which is a look that suits me fine, but for someone who loves drama, neutrals are probably not for you.
Color means drama in most cases, and strong contrasts add to that type of look. So if neutrals are not for you, look into building your wardrobe with strong contrasts like navy and white or strong splashes of color. I find I often wear neutral, gray, or tan.

Both colors are appropriate for a dinner date, but they're also nice for casual shopping trips and being out and about. Sneakers with a new and unusual look can be a fun way to make a statement without compromising comfort.
Mules are one of my favorite types of shoes to wear in the summertime. They come in many colors, and they are so easy to slip on when you're in a hurry. I personally like them to have some fancy details and a bit of a romantic feel. With some flair and sophistication, mules are still a classic summer look. Besides denim blue, this shoe comes in an array of other colors. Clarks is my "go-to" brand because they are comfortable for touring on vacation and long shopping trips.
If I need to stay on my feet, I put my Clarks on! Even my fashion-conscious daughter is a convert to this brand because they feel good to walk in and look fantastic. The Mango brand is full of neutral colors, textures, and very wearable shapes for older women.
