You can never go sartorially wrong with black. It's everyone's favourite, failsafe go-to. A LBD is a wardrobe staple for a reason! When summer comes around we tend to feel like we should be shedding our daily uniform of black on black and replacing it with a plethora of sunny colours and feminine florals. But, there's no need to leave your beloved dark tones buried deep at the back of the wardrobe, hibernating until the cooler weather hits in Autumn.
So, in dedication of our favourite colour, we're going to take you through 3 foolproof ways to style black wardrobe staples in the balmy summer heat...
First up, we have everyone's favourite: the biker jacket. An easy-to-wear throw on piece that has a place in every M Girl's closet. A black leather jacket is the prefect add on to any summer dress. The slick leather and silver hardware gives a much needed cool girl edge to floaty fabrics and candy colours. Try Iro's classic biker over the top of one of Tibi's elegant flowing midi dresses to toughen up your look. Or why not try Mo & Co's patched leather version paired with EDIT's colour block sundress for an everyday cool vibe.
Wide legged trousers are a staple for every 2016 wardrobe. A classic black pair are easy to dress down and just as easy to dress up. For an easy go-to summer outfit, guaranteed to keep you cool, opt to pair yours with a simple tee. Keep it monochrome for nonchalant elegance. Throw on Tibi's deconstructed buckled top over a pair of Bella Freud pants. Or keep it relaxed with a slogan tee from Etre Cecile & a pair of Rag & Bone leather culottes for a daytime sports-luxe feel.
Our third and final focus is on the added accents that work to elevate your outfit. Pairing black accent pieces with neutral tones is a good way of keeping your look fresh and seasonal, whilst still adding in the edgier dark hue. Layer Alexander Wang's bralet top over a simple, understated dress, such as EDIT's flute sleeve version or over Each X Other's ribbed tank for an unexpected texture clash. A pair of Alexander Wang chunky black sandals add a rocker edge toEach X Other's light peach-toned duster coat.
