Nothing makes us feel as chic as an all-black outfit. Flattering and effortlessly on-trend, black never goes out of style and there’s a reason for it!
However, when the weather heats up and temperatures soar, wearing those darker hues can feel daunting. Fear not! We’ve got the inside scoop on how to wear those shades even when the sun hits. Read on as we share how…
Cut Out To Keep It Cool
A black dress instantly makes us feel sexy and powerful but, when the temperatures skyrocket, it’s all about the cut! Choose a style with a peak-a-boo detail that will let the air flow without compromising on your cool credentials. Our Tien Gown is perfect for summer with its cut-out waist panels and high slit. Breezy and beautiful – tie your hair into a slicked back ponytail, wear with flat black sandals and some killer shades to complete that glam evening look that’s ideal for cocktails on the roof terrace.
Crop It Like It’s Hot
Now an all-black jumpsuit might make you feel overheated but, if you choose a style with a summer ready silhouette, you’ll be ready to wow - even in the midday sun! Our Reta Jumpsuit’s spaghetti straps and low back detail are perfect for letting you show some skin whilst the wide leg pants help to let the cool air in. Wear your hair in a top knot bun and add on a pair of chunky sliders and you’re ready to breeze into the hottest weeks of the year in style.
If the thought of all-black feels just too dark for the summer months, then why not mix and match your darker pieces with pops of colour to bring a touch of sunshine in? We love pairing our cute, cropped Romy Top with our pink Salvia Skirt for just the right fusion of dark and light. Wear with white sneakers and an oversized chain (we love our Astrid & Miyu Textured Oval Link T-Bar) to finish off a look that can take you from running errands to a bottomless brunch in an instant.
Accessorise Some Summer
If you want to keep it all black but bring a hint of the summer season to your look, then you can’t go wrong with adding a pop of colour and print with your accessories. Keep your outfit head to toe black but add in a cute scrunchie or wrap a printed scarf around your bag handle to bring the heat. Our Chaa design in bright and bold yellow is like sunshine bottled, whilst our Alar Scarf brings just the right amount of the great outdoors to your look with a design inspired by the beautiful butterfly.
Soften To Navy
Black may be your go to, but if you want to soften slightly, then why not try Navy? Equally as chic but less intense on the eye, it’s the perfect hue for those who want a summer compromise. Our Ivy Dress is ideal for garden parties, weddings and elevated BBQs. Wear it with a lighter shade shoe (we’d go for a white platform), a cute raffia bag and keep your hair tied back in a high pony to complete the look.
With so many ways to master darker dressing in the warmer months, it’s time to break the fashion rules and show off your best all-black look. Don’t forget to tag us in your summer looks so we can celebrate your unique style!
