There is something about black that we just want to hang on to, even through the hot summer months. Black is a chic, mysterious, and captivating color When paired correctly, it can be worn all year around. Today, I am sharing some tips on how to bring a fresh new take to your black pieces this summer.
Seven Tips For Wearing Black In The Summer
1.) Pair your black with a lighter color to bring a fresh summer vibe.
Whether you pair your black with nudes, whites, or bright colors, choosing a lighter tone will emphasize your black piece.
2.) Choose light fabrics.
To keep you and your look cool, choose fabrics that aren’t heavy or weighed down with embellishments.
3.) Focus on your accessories. (learn more about my accessories below)
If you opt to wear an all black dress, separate your black by accenting with bolder accessories.
4.) Go Sheer.
The easiest way to stay looking fresh and summery is by choosing a sheer top that you can layer with a bralette. Don’t be afraid to break out the lace.
6.) A little black (slip) dress is your best friend.

7.) Stay fitted.
