Something us fashionistas cannot get away from is rocking those bold blacks during the hot summer months. Yes, it may not fall into the vibrant bright yellows and oranges that are made for this season, but it does make us look fabulously irresistible. The trick is choosing the right fabrics and styles that will keep you feeling comfortably cool and stylish.
Cold Shoulders are one of this season’s favorite trends and it sure does look good in black. But finding the perfect top that can be paired with anything at anytime is a must! Selecting soft and lightweight fabrics is key to keeping away those uncomfortable sweat marks.
Kimonos are so fun and easy to style. Dress it up, dress it down, wear it on a date or to the beach! They are great for any season, but black lace kimonos are one of our faves, especially for the summertime. Try dressing it with a cute pair of jeans and a simple flowy top. It’s the perfect statement piece.
