How to Wear Black in the Summer

Black is a color that is simultaneously sophisticated, chic, and incredibly easy to mix and match with every other color out there. In addition, there is nothing more stylish and classic than an all-black outfit. So, it is no wonder that many women adore wearing black, even in the summer. Of course, we all know that white and some lighter colors are typically associated with a summer wardrobe, but this does not mean that you shouldn’t wear black during the warmer months.

Here are a few guidelines on how to wear black in the summer and feel and look great while rocking a monochromatic look.

If there were to be a color that perfectly describes pure elegance, it would be black. Linen or silky black button-down shirt is wonderful to be combined with pencil skirts in the same color. Add some trendy black strappy sandals to achieve the utmost fashionable look. Pay attention, a black leather pencil skirt would look amazing with this outfit, but having in mind that this is a summer look, it is better to opt for more lightweight materials. Instead, you go for a leather bag, such as a classic Chanel handbag.

Another great combination is one-shoulder top and wide-leg trousers, all in black, of course. As the top is supposed to be fitting, in contrast to the wide leg trousers, make sure to choose a material that you will feel comfortable in. To make this look even more exquisite, accessorize it with some gold jewelry, which will additionally emphasize your summer, golden tan. A few stacked necklaces and a bracelet or a splendid gold watch will perfectly finish off this look.

Additionally, if you like wearing your paper bag trousers, then this summer you will love wearing paper bag shorts. A pair of these shorts is an essential fashion piece, as it is incredibly easy to style. You can, once more, go for a one-shoulder top or blouse, as one-shoulder outfits are an absolute hit for this summer, and find ones in black to match the monochromatic outfit. On the other hand, if you feel like wearing something that shows a bit more of your perfectly tanned skin, basic spaghetti strap bodysuit is a safe and trendy option. You can even add a modish leather belt to spice up the look a bit.

If you thought that black dresses are reserved only for the nighttime, you were wrong. The best proof can be seen among the girls and women who live in areas where the summers are especially hot, like Australia, for instance. Australian trendsetters do not shy away from wearing modern, black sundresses for a casual brunch or when going shopping. However, the key is to opt for a bit of elegance when choosing your dress and that is why it is no wonder that brands like Mastani offer monochromatic luxury fashion in Melbourne and other cities in Australia. You can also achieve the simple, yet effective style that Australian women are known for by dressing in a short black dress decorated with lace or a long, sheer, maxi dress, under which you can wear a black cami dress.

Accessorize your black dress of choice with a thin choker and a dashing belt bag, like the black Gucci one with gold hardware. If you want to go for a completely glamorous look, a monochromatic blazer dress paired with high heels will be a quick and classy option that never fails.

Is there anything more casual and fashionable than denim? Most likely no, so some black denim is a superb option for a summer outfit. A black denim mini skirt will look fabulous with a simple linen T-shirt or a black lace ruffle top. In case you prefer jeans, a pair of black denim ones can be matched with a ruffle crop top to get a comfortable street style look. High waisted skinny jeans are a trusty choice, but you may want to carry out an Instagram-worthy look, in which case you should try out a pair of popular mom jeans, which seem to be incredibly comfy. As for the shoes, go for sneakers or flat sandals, either option will look fantastic with a denim outfit. Grab your phone and water bottle, get them into a cute bucket bag, and you are all ready to go out.

Another summery option would include black biker shorts, that only require a loose cotton T-shirt and a pair of your favourite sneakers to complete the look.

Finally, don’t forget to follow these guidelines and enjoy a stylish summer look in black.
