Loads of people I know wouldn't touch black with a barge-pole in the summer. I, however, am a lover of black through and through and it would be a travesty to skip these pieces just because of the season!
The shape of this dress is darrrrling. It really doesn't matter that it's black because it's clearly made for summer-lovin'- and I really am. I'd team it with layers of gold necklaces (maybe a coin pendant) and white sneakers or heeled mules for a dressier look.
You can still do black with a lil floral if you don't want to do H2T block colour. I really like how these dresses all incorporate a coloured floral design but they are non-the-less still black. Perf.
I don't care what anyone says, a black jumpsuit is chic, cool and totes appropriate for any summer time engagement. I love this little Billabong bust tie detail and the wide-leg shape means it looks a little like a maxi dress, a little like a jump-suit, who knows!?
The perfect black combo for summer; the slip dress and the slide.
I love this look so much I might do a whole fashion post about it (watch this space!) This simple black slip is a pure investment and paired with a plain black (ok, yes they're YSL) slide, this look could take you from food shopping to lunch to a date with it's eyes closed.
Lace is a nice way to do black in the summer because it softens it a little. I end up wearing most of my lacey purchases during the warmer months. I Love the dress for a summer night out and both the skirt and crop top could be styled super casually for a more breezy vibe.
I have several black skirts that I rotate through the summer but I'm always on the hunt for more. I would wear this Proenza handkerchief skirt with mules (obvs) and a knotted tee and this 3.1 Phillip Lim I would actually dress right down and do sneakers with it to make it more edgy.
