Wearing black all the time can give you a bad wrap. Especially when you make this bold outfit choice during the spring and summer months. I do not believe in that stigma however, I love wearing black! It is a safe bet and always makes me feel comfortable. Plus, wearing black is slimming so what is not to love?!
There are ways to make this style appropriate for when thermometers are reaching new heights. If you love wearing black, no matter how much or how little, I say go for it girl! Chic black outfits are here to stay even in the warmer months. Who says you have to be in pastels from March to August? Sometimes it is more fun to break the rules.
Do not let anybody tell you that you cannot wear black all the dang time, if that is what you want to do! It is flattering on everybody and a style statement that no matter who you will look beautiful in. For day, anything black and sleeveless will create a great contrast against a light washed pair of jeans. A pop of skin and the mix of light and dark will keep it from looking too heavy in the daytime. I opted for an open vest, it dresses up my basic jeans and tank perfectly. A completer piece (a jacket, vest or sweater) will instantly make you look pulled together no matter what you pair it with. Throw on a black heel and purse and you are good to go.
If you are rockin’ this outfit choice for night, hello ever heard of an LBD?! A black dress is the perfect canvas for any shoes and accessories you want to pair it with. The lack of a bright color will allow you to pick a dress with an interesting fabrication or design details. you literally cannot go wrong with this outfit choice and nobody will give you slack for not wearing color because it is a timeless option, always!
If color isn’t your thing, rep it, you don’t always need to look like a light bright to stand out. You can look effortlessly chic in black all throughout the year. Shop my top picks down below and welcome to the dark side!
