Its weird but black seems to have become a popular colour this summer. I had dismissed the idea. But then its black. I was intrigued. Satarupa uploaded an all black look on Instagram and I started thinking.
I decided to try it. But its not as easy as putting on any black dress (in case you think my work here is not important).
1. It maybe black but it still has to be summery. So definitely no body-con and no full-sleeved black maxis. Short and strappy is preferred, sleeveless may pass. Nothing fussy, simple and easy is best.
2. Jewellery should be minimal.
3. And shoes. The shoes are really important and as little shoe in the shoe, the better (you understand what I am trying to say right?).
5. And an adorable bag helps too – although I have to admit there is nothing summery about black lace. Even for clothing, black lace may not be particularly summery. Try black crochet instead.
(I call it my Blair Waldorf bag.)
Hope you have a good black summer!
