How To Wear Black in the summer


Black is an essential in most ladies’ wardrobes. Why? Well, many gals feel that it hides some of their physical flaws, but also that it flatters all types of skin tones. It is excellent for any occasion. You can dress it down and you can dress it up. You can wear any shoe color, accessories or makeup with black. It is so versatile – in so many ways. You can wear black to a casual, formal or informal event and still look elegant and chic.

The Right Fabric

Many people agree that black draws heat and the summer is usually hot. How can you wear black in the summer, then? It is important to first have the right fabric. You don’t want to wear anything too heavy. Choose light fabrics so your ensemble doesn’t feel like a solar panel or electric blanket. Add a hint of color to your ensemble with your shoes, purses, nails, accessories, tops and bottoms. There are no rules to what you can do with black. Play with it and be original.

Love Interest With Black

If you are like me, I have a love interest with black. I like the fact that it matches with anything. I don’t have to think twice about wearing a white or orange pair of shoes with my little black dress. Don’t put away that black dress just because it is summer. You can wear black and still feel cool, lovely and appealing.

Forget About The Dark Past

In the past, black was a ‘no, no’ in the summer. In fact, people would look at you as if you were crazy. However, now it is different. Fashion is forgiving and as trends are created, black is no longer on the back burner. Now you will see some breezy and loose fabrics in black.

Ask The Stars

If you were to ask Angelina Jolie, she would tell you that it really isn’t a big deal at all. She wears black on most occasions and looks fiercely beautiful just the same. You can wear a black spaghetti strapped dress or vest like Jolie does or you can choose a nice black sundress with a low cut back. A strapless black jumpsuit or romper is the ideal choice for one of those hot summer days. Off the shoulder black tops or dresses give you the sex appeal and still makes you feel cool.

Go Without Sleeves

A sleeveless black dress or top will add some sophistication to your look. You can also choose to wear a sweetheart neckline or cutout sides and back are also great ideas to feeling incredibly sexy in black. Select a dress that drapes around your body and won’t stick to your body in the summer heat, but make sure it is a tube top dress that flows at the bottom.


To wear black in the summer, the most important thing is to ensure that you wear loose and light fabric. Choose silky, sheer and jersey materials for the summer heat. That’s just plain common sense and not necessarily the wisdom of fashion. Do you have any ideas that you would like to share here? If so, leave them in the comment box below.
