Tip 1: Find a Summery SilhouetteΒ 

While wearing black you should keep in mind that its a color that attracts heat so you make sure you choose black pieces in a silhouette that’s summer friendly. Like I went for the shorts here. And paired them with an off the shoulder top. This combo is going to keep me cool and makes the outfit super Summery even though its all black. You can also wear black summer dresses like I did here or black flowy skirts here.

Tip 2: Find the Right Fabric

Linen is THE fabric for Summer. If you ask me I’d live in linen in Summers. It’s lightweight, breathable & nothing says Summer more than linen. Also, 100% cotton pieces will do the same job for you. So while choosing black tops, dresses or skirts opt for pieces that are made of linen or a cotton blend. That way you still make sure that you comfortable wearing black. Check here how I wore this black linen front knot dress.
