How to wear Black During The Summer

In Fashion, Outfit of the day by wR23Fs2Sqi40 Comments

Why hello Friday! I know it’s the middle of summer and we’re all about wearing colour but I still find myself gravitating towards black at least a couple times a week. Don’t get wrong, I like to wear colour here and there but black, white (see here) and grey will always be my go to’s. I guess that’s the minimalist in me. Or I’m just boring that way. Lol! Anyhow, I do think it’s possible to wear black during the summer and not melt. It all comes down to fabric choices. I like to pick breathable cotton pieces, linen, viscose/rayon blends or even silk. If I’m opting for pants, I usually like to stick with fabrics like silk or rayon because they allow you to stay cool and still look professional (office appropriate). And bonus, they don’t cling to the body.

  1. 100% agree!
    It’s all about the thickness of the fabric and how form fitting it is/isn’t.
    You get a easy breezy black maxi dress and it’s not different than wearing a yellow one or a red or a white…like you said it’s all about material choice.
    Loving your IG snaps btw (is that what they’re called?) It’s always fun to see if the voice matches the pictures, you know?
    Yours is right on point in the most polished manner :p

      Thanks babe! I think they’re called Instagram stories. But I like to getting to hear everyone’s voices too.

  2. I totally agree with you – black is a totally viable option for summer! I love it year round. And the tip of wearing loose-fitting lightweight fabrics is key. Love the post and the outfit!

  3. Love this post. Black is a wonderful color and it even looks nice in the summer.
    Those black shorts are super cute and can be styled so many different ways.
    I have yet to find a pair I want. I’ll probably just look into new shorts next year
    since Fall is fast approaching.

  4. You’re so right, beauty, it does all come down to the right fabric and pieces when wearing black during the summer, it IS possible! That said, I love your outfit, that tank is so cute and looks great paired with those shorts! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you’re having a great week so far!
