Black In The Summer

I once saw an interview where Blake Lively was asked what her favorite color was and her response was something that has stuck with me ever since. She said that she doesn't have one because each color makes up the next. I had never thought about it like that until she said it, but I completely agree with her. I have to say though if there is one color that I gravitate towards above all the other colors, it is black. 

I know that for some people, they pay attention to what season it is to determine what colors they wear. I have never been like that because if I want to wear hot pink nail polish over oxblood in the fall, I am going to do it! Same goes for wearing black when it is not "appropriate". 

There is something about how sophisticated and sleek black always looks, no matter what time of day or season. You could even go out in an all black workout outfit and still look like a million bucks. Thinking about my love of the color black inspired me to make an outfit post on how I style black in the summer, without looking like I am about to roll into Hot Topic. 

If you pair your black clothes with summer pieces, you can get away with the color more. For instance, if you are wearing a black shirt with black shorts and black sandals, it is still going to give the same effect as a bright shirt, white shorts and nude sandals because those kind of pieces are meant to be worn in the spring/summer.

My ideal black-in-the-summer outfit is definitely a baby doll dress, black sandals, a black pair of sunglasses and a black bag. I like to layer dainty jewelry with it to give it that elegant touch.


I hope that this post has inspired you all to wear your favorite color regardless of season!
