Summer black

How do you wear black in summer ?
While some of you are going crazy over orange being the new black, for black has always been the new black and the only black… sorry to burst your bubble.  It almost seems strange to choose a black number on a hot summer day but guess what …sometimes you want to defy the normals.

Yes black is rather solid for summer “they say”… thats until you add some accessories and texture to break it up and prove them wrong

So from the head … a bob or cropped hair style means you need not worry about your hair getting in the way.

Keep your dressing simple and chic. This off the shoulder boat neck leotard is great for a Lil shoulder sexynessssss. … A must have for the summer plus it totally softens this look..

High waisted jeans go a long way in giving an instant and painless tummy tuck.

My tassle bag adds some much needed texture to this outfit.   Suddenly this all black ensemble has movement. Great for my festival fanatics.n

Finally  some killer heels. I have all the height I could ever require but the battle to be content continues.
I opted for cut out Sandals as no one likes sweaty feet in the summer. No doubt we stay on trend as caged shoes are a wardrobe essential this season.

Would you be seen in all black in summer.?  How do you make “all black” less grungy and more gorgeous.

This spring, don’t just blend seamlessly into the background.

Be The Focal Point in a Floral Print.

Take a fashion stand with bold floral, petal prints.  With the different shades in this one dress, picking the perfect matching accessories was easy….  Actually I was spoilt for choice.

Not sure if ASOS know but the thin back heel on this shoe makes it special!

The side pockets on this dress is total handy. you can keep your phone with you at all times to capture those moments and of-course one or twenty selfies. ;-)

I am in love with the print, colour and general shaping of this dress.  It is flattering and #fashionedaroundmycurves. However, the cool 100% cotton fabric makes this dress slightly on the snug side.  On the brighter side you can be snugged yet cool???

This is the problem with being a woman … too much choice. Which combination do you prefer? Comments in the box below.
