Block Heels

Shorts - Abercrombie, Top - Bella Dahl, Heels - ShoeMint, Handbag - ModCloth, Earrings - Forever21, Necklace - Chloe + Isabel, Sunglasses - Vogue Eyewear

A 70's throwback for some and a 90's circa Clueless throwback for others, there's no denying that block heels have made their mark on multiple generations. And while I may not be the bravest when it comes to exploring the retro style pool, accessories are always an easier transition into uncharted territories. Since summer is all about simplicity, I suggest opting for block heels in light airy colors. Because this style demands attention, it's important not to throw off the proportions of your ensembles with a color that's too loud and eye catching.
