Summer time fashion this year seems very focused around bright happy colours. This can be really fun but it can be difficult to match things up without looking like a tacky rainbow. I think it’s absolutely fine to wear black in summer and I’ve found some really nice pieces that you could mix and match with a number of outfits.
Here’s my hot picks:
I know a plain black T-shirt can seem like a boring buy, but this top has been extremely useful to me. It’s lightweight material is cool and its plain colour allows it to be worn with bright floral bottoms.
The bardot style is really on trend right now. I don’t particularly like this paired with the leather trousers as it resembles Sandy from Grease. I wore this on a night out and accompanied it with a floral skort; it wasn’t too hot and any sweat patches wouldn’t have shown due to the colour.
I love this American football style top, I think the off the shoulder style keeps it up to date and adds a more feminine touch. I bought this top and it’s cool enough to wear on hot days and I’ve actually worn it as a dress, which has been perfect for nights out.
This isn’t entirely black but still runs with the dark colour theme. I recently bought this and have paired it with a black t-shirt. It looks smart but despite the colour it’s very cooling. I’ve had comments on how nice it looks and it’s been very useful to attend Uni in, and it’s also cheap.
