As much as we love experimenting with vibrant colors and going bold during the summers, we can’t seem to help ourselves when it comes to throwing on all black basics. The darkest shade in the hot Indian summers must sound like your worst nightmare. But we’ve come up with summer-proof ways to wear black like a boss in the heat and not feel like a baked potato from within. So if you’re someone who finds it impossible to keep your hands off black, this is the place for you to be. Here are 5 new and fun ways to wear black-on-black and still feel easy, breezy and summery.
Little black dress
LBD’s are appropriate all year round; one can never go wrong with a little black dress. A perfect summer LBD would be the right balance between casual and dressy. One of those outfits which you can choose to either dress up or wear down. A silky, elegant and minimal black dress would be the way to go.
Overalls seem to be the biggest trends this summer. And if you don’t own one already, investing in a pair is a necessity. Team it up with an off the shoulder crop, or just a lacey bralette. Throw on a pair of sandals for a dash of colour and beat the intense heat in style.
Sleeveless on sleeves
To whoever said layering is not for the summers, we’re here to prove you wrong. And no we’re not talking about a studded leather jacket; we’re talking about lighter summer throw ons. Layering will just add to your “effortlessly stylish” look and make it way more interesting.
Show off your summer bods in thigh-high slits this season. Maxi dresses or sleek cotton trousers, it’s your pick. To complete the look, pair it up with a loose tee and knot it up. And don’t forget a messy top knot.
A cute outfit you don’t want to spend more than a minute thinking about? Rompers are your answer. Slip into an all black romper and accessorize it with some dainty gold jewellery. Make a statement and put on a pair of reflectors. P.S. we don’t recommend this style for men.
