O U T F I T D E T A I L S : F21 BLACK DRESS (SIMILAR) | SKIRT (WORN BACKWARDS) | PEEP-TOE BOOTIES (BUDGET FRIENDLY) | H&M CHOKER (SIMILAR, LOVE THIS)
I'm a sucker for neutrals, and black is one colour I'm not willing to give up despite the temperatures rising. I love Summer-izing my black pieces and it's the perfect time to show a little skin and also keep things edgy.
I've had this flowy shift dress for a year and while the tail is long, the front is a little on the short side for me, so I always pair it with a body-con style skirt underneath for a bit more coverage. Depending on where I'm going, I can pull the skirt down to offer more coverage, or up like here for a night out.
The key to making your black pieces work for Summer is to keep the fabrics lighter--think crochet, linen, chiffon & lace--and looser and show a little leg or bare the shoulders, etc. Work with the warm weather, not against it.
