Wearing black in Summer

I am all for breaking fashion myths. Most people are unconvinced about wearing black in the summer, especially during daytime. But I feel like if you choose the right fabric, cut and style it right, the colour does not matter. Black is my go-to colour. Like there is comfort food, there are comfort colours and for me it is black. As much as I love pastels and floral during summer, sometimes it is impossible not to gravitate towards black.

The secrets to wearing black during the summer and the daytime are:

  • Choose lightweight and flowing fabrics. Avoid anything thick, tight fitting and clingy.
  • Keep the jewellery minimal. You want the look to be minimalistic and summer friendly.
  • Keep your makeup clean and fresh. You do not want a cakey face and oodles of makeup. Stick to a bright lip, a bold eye or a bare, fresh face.

So if you love black just like I do, just keep these small things in mind and rock the colour!
