how to wear black in the summer.

Most people tend to flock to florals and colours in the summer, but that's just not for me. I love black all summer. And why not? Then you can take a black tee you wore all summer and layer it up with a jacket for fall/winter. Perfect for multi-season dressing. 

The trick to wearing black in the summer is to choose modern silhouettes, and combine textures so that the outfit doesn't feel too flat. Here I've mixed black faux leather with jersey, cotton, felt and calf hair textures. Silky type of fabrics are perfect in black too, and black vintage wash jean shorts (I'm on the hunt for the perfect pair). Another trick to this is wearing accessories that pop, so it doesn't feel boring. Here I've paired this Nicole Vienna watch with Oak + Fort stacking rings, and a bracelet from Casa de Delia. I love how the gold pops on the black. And it's the perfect way to highlight amazing accessories!
