Black is usually associated with winter wear, but I (somehow) end up wearing it more in the summer months. I can't figure out what it is, but it feels easier for me to wear lightweight black clothing than heavy sweaters in such a dark shade. This outfit is the perfect blend of lightweight fabrics while still keeping a the dark colors interesting. Different textures and a steady flow of neutrals are how we keep all black ensembles interesting during winter, but we tend to forget how to do the same in the summer. Cotton, leather, lace, straw-- all of these are easy combinations to try when you get tired of wearing bright colors every day.

How do you keep all-black outfits interesting during the blazing hot days of summer?
