Keeping it Cool in Black

29 May

Summer Black2

It’s a well-known sartorial and scientific fact: Darker colors absorb more heat. But that will not stop us from sporting chic black pieces this summer, because a sleek and understated all-black ensemble looks fresh, modern and quite frankly, cool enough to beat the heat.

Consider the 7 For All Mankind black zip skinny jeans with a tissue thin white tank top tucked in. Throw on a pair of simple, on-trend ankle strap high heeled sandals and over-sized gold aviator sunglasses and you’re instantly conjuring up a California cool Angelina Jolie-esque vibe.Summer Black3

The Pieced Jacquard Skinny jeans are a dark pair of pants that provide an excellent anchor to a mostly all-black look. Play up the texture of the pants with a graphic t-shirt and sporty designer sneakers. It’s a street chic look that feels perfect for traipsing around a new city during summer travels.

The sexy allure of an all-black summer look is not strictly for the ladies. Guys can get in on the mysterious and enticing trend too.

For you, this is the opposite of preppy or hippie, but that doesn’t mean you have to fall into metal head or Goth territory. In fact-please don’t.

When it comes to the guys, wearing black this summer means going for faded black or almost black washes that have a sleek-yet-worn in and relaxed feel.

Pair black shorts, which have a subtle monochromatic print, with a faded black t-shirt and some all-white sneakers to break up the dark hues.

Don’t relegate your darker clothing to colder weather. Stand out from the rest of the beach crowd rocking an understated and all-black ensemble.
