I have a tendency to lean towards the opposite of what is the common choice for what to wear in the summertime. While most people gravitate towards bright colors, I usually find myself preferring an all black outfit or favorite black pieces mixed in with my usual go-to neutral color choices choices of white and grey. I love the unexpectedness of an all black outfit in the summertime. With that said, the pieces I choose are still weather appropriate; flirty skirts, breezy tops, pretty lace, maxis and all in lighter weight fabrics like silk, cotton and linen. These pieces by Joie are some of my favorite summer go-to black tops – tank, tee, and lace blouse. I am also loving PJK Patterson’s leather tee, a draped top by Ella Moss and Rag & Bone skinny jeans.
One other favorite way to wear black in the summer is in contrast to an all white outfit, wearing a black moto jacket to top off the all white look, bringing a nice contrast and edginess to the lighter pieces.
