The summertime is usually a time to break out clothing in bright hues and patterns but you may not feel like being decked out in neon colored ensembles all summer long and wearing black in the warmer months may not always seem summer appropriate but it can be done, read on to find out how to pull off the dark (and sometimes hot!) hue this summer.
Black clothing looks good on everybody, I mean seriously have you ever seen anyone look bad in the dark, makes everyone look five pounds lighter hue? So it is pretty much impossible to stay away from the color the entire summer season and why would you want to? When wearing black in the warmer months it is important to play with size and proportion so it doesn’t feel weighed down or too heavy. During the summer months wear black with shorter hemlines and neutral colored shoes to keep the color from looking too dense. Remember to pick pieces in breathable fabric to help you stay cool while looking hot!
Wearing black on a hot day, try choosing a black eyelet or silk dress, the lightweight fabrics scream summer. Black pants look great when paired with a breezy tank and light colored booties. Black pieces with neutral stripes pack a summer punch, especially when you factor in cute, strappy sandals. A sheer black top paired with leather shorts is the perfect summer date night outfit. Neutral maxi skirts and boots feel summer ready when paired with a black crop top. You can even wear head to toe black in the summer, just add interest with your accessories (think black snakeskin bag or black textured shoes).
