You can still wear black in summer, just go for lighter and more airy materials like cotton, lightweight silks and linen rather than denim, polyester, viscose etc. Black attracts the heat so just make your outfits as lightweight as possible and don’t fuss about with too many layers.posted about 7 years ago
I remember I was at a beach in Florida once, wearing black skinny jeans, a black shirt, a black blazer, and Chucks. I got some very odd looks.
Had I been wearing a breezy black dress and sandals, though, no one would’ve noticed. The key is to wear summery styles and textures that will spruce up the dark color and make it look less somber.posted about 7 years ago
stick to simpler pieces like rompers and light weight dresses.. though you don’t like patterns and color if you want to wear black in the summer, color and prints are a get way to tone down the black in the heat. also its super simple to take a day look into night, just by adding statement pieces in accessories and putting on great shoes will make any day outfit a great going out look.posted about 7 years ago
Lightweight fabrics and summery shapes are the trick here. I live in Alabama, so I know exactly the face-melting humidity and probably more so the odd stares for maintaining style in the heatwave that you are referring to. Make sure you’re comfortable, that’s most important.posted almost 6 years ago
don’t know if you read fifty shades of grey, but christian once told ana " you should be in satins and silks". i also love wearing black, like you said it’s classy, but i now only wear black in satins and silks.posted over 4 years ago
Well you definitely don’t want the blazer! And jeans will probably be quite hot too. Like others said, you might want to switch up the fabrics. I live in Texas, so I know exactly what you’re going through. I stick with silk and linen if I’m wearing pants in the summer, but mostly I wear dresses and skirts.posted over 4 years ago
