Warmer weather is just around the corner and a lot of people have the preconceived notion that you shouldn’t wear black this summer.
Spring/summer in the fashion world normally means bright colors and bold florals. Although I love both of these trends, for some reason I always gravitate towards more neutral colors like white, gray, taupe and especially black. It goes with anything and I just love the timeless, classy color.
Side note: There used to be that rule where you couldn’t wear white after Labor Day… but white was one of the hottest trends this WINTER! So in my opinion, rules were made to be broken. There are so many cute things you can do with black this summer and I can not wait to show them off!
One of my most loved looks is pairing a black top with white jeans. Whether you choose a black top or black skinnies, keeping your outfit colors neutral will allow you to experiment with bright colors for accessories.
Try adding color with a statement necklace. I chose this pink one from Lilly Pulitzer (similar) but a mint green or light blue would also look great! I’m loving the fringe detail on the necklace (fringe is also super trendy this summer) so I decided to pair it with a set of fringe bracelets from bauble bar (below).
This swing top has an unconventional shape with a shorter front and more length on the sides. This creates more of a statement than a straight hem.
This is my favorite part! How cute is this open back?! I love how it adds an airy, cool, summer vibe. I also got it for under $25 at Nordstrom! I loved this top so much I ended up getting it in white too. (Similar top for $17 in 5 colors).
There are so many other options for wearing black this summer! Additional looks I can’t wait to try: a black crop top with a matching skirt, a short black romper and a black swim suit and matching hat for the beach. What are some other ways you plan to wear black this summer? Leave a comment -can’t wait to hear from you!
