Traditional rules of seasonal fashion will tell you that black is a winter color, and summertime calls for white. But as most fashionistas know – rules are meant to be broken. In fact, summertime is a great time to wear the darkest hue imaginable – yes, even from head to toe. For those of who you won’t ever stop wearing black until they make a darker color, here are 7 ways to rock the “all black everything” look, despite the rising temps.
1. LBR (Little Black Romper)
A cute, flouncy romper gets a chic makeover when worn in all black. Pair it with a dangly charm necklace and strappy sandals to finish the look. (Photo via Forever 21 / $14.90)
2. Patterned Midi Dresses
If solid black isn’t your jam, try on a dress with patterns, like this midi dress from H&M. Bring along a brightly colored tote for a splash of color. (Photo via H&M / $19.99)
3. Cut it out with cutouts
For a sexy, summery look, try a strappy dress with cutouts. It takes the “little black dress” to a whole new level. (Photo via Express / $55.93)
4. Jump for joy for jumpsuits
For those cooler evenings (or breezy nights on the beach) try out a jumpsuit, like this lace-up one from Topshop. (Photo via Topshop / $75)
5. Crop Top, T-Bird Style
Crop tops are totally in these days (hello, 90s) but you can spice up the look with a stylish leather jacket. (Photo via Urban Outfitters / Crop Top $14.99)
6. Cover Up And Tie It Off
The black maxi dress takes on a twist with this open-front, tie up number. Throw it on over shorts, as pictured above, or use it as a cover-up at the beach. (Photo via Forever 21 / $29.90)
7. Witty T shirts
At the end of the day, witty t-shirts always save the day. Pair it with any color jeans or shorts (but we know you’ll pick black denim.) (photo via Gypsy Warrior / $32)
