I love the color black! It’s such a classic color and screams chic! I tend to gravitate towards black in cooler weather and whites more during summer. Why? I think it’s because I grew up thinking that the fashion norm was to wear dark colors in the cooler temperatures and brights in hot temperatures. I lived by this way of thought for most of my life, however the older I got the more I decided to create my own fashion rules. Now, I wear color all year round, and I wear black all year round. There is something about black that makes it super attractive. It is no secret that black is a slimming color hence it is the number one color found in most closets (not all but most lol).
When you can’t find anything in the closet that feels right, what color do most people turn too? Black is the popular choice because it takes no time to combine with any other color, it’s a safe color that can elevate your pieces from casual to chic or create a bold statement without much effort. As I enter into this new decade of life, I’m crushing all rules that don’t make sense when it comes to fashion. Black can be worn year round and honestly it should. You can transition pieces from season to season by simply switching up your accessories.
Do you wonder the best way to combine black into your summer attire while still being on trend for the summer? If you are not sure how to pull of black in the summer, get inspired by these look. Both outfits demonstrate how easy it is to make this dark yet chic color work for your summer events.
