New York may be the city of all-black ensembles, but we're having none of it. The racks - especially the sale racks! - are filling up with bright, fun colors as summer heats up, and we can't get enough. Check out some of our favorite finds:

Forever 21: Up to 90 percent off. This lilac print dress is a great backdrop for your latest jewelry finds. The shift design and the basic print will focus all the attention on your new gems - or, you know, on your beachy waves and killer tan. Your pick. (Was $19.80, now $15.84)

Bloomingdales: 25 to 40 percent off. We're loving the color and the cut of these Current/Elliot stiletto cropped jeans in Cayenne - what better way to embrace the color blocking trend? For a playful look, pair these with flats or funky sandals, or get a more sophisticated look with sleek pumps. (Were $188, now $131.60)

Gap: Up to 70 percent off. Have some fun with this Cascade wrap dress - it's a flirty cut and a great color. We love the added ruffle, which is flattering on all body types (and yes, we know "ruffle" and "flattering" rarely go hand-in-hand). (Was $69.95, now $34.99)

Aldo: Extra 30 percent off all sale sandals. These Rufina sandals are the perfect summer shoe. The teal stones add a fun, but not distracting, flair to any outfit and the leather soles are sturdy enough to keep your feet in tip-top shape all summer long. (Were $60, now $27.99)
