When you’re the type of girl who loves wearing black, no level of heat and no amount of perspiration (kind of gross, but true) can stop you from doing so. Of course, all those bullets of sweat can be avoided by choosing the right kind of all-black outfit to wear. Here are some suggestions:
1. Give the slip
Combat the heat in a practically non-existent slip dress. Exchange your white sneakers for a pair of sexy heels once the sun sets.
2. Short term
Do we really need to explain how summer-friendly shorts are? But instead of a plain black tee, try a crochet camisole instead.
3. Easy does it
When choosing fabrics, lightweight ones are your best bet. Aim for that chic undone look by pairing an oversized silk top with a side-slit midi skirt.
5. Cream of the crop
As if a crop top isn’t cool enough, sheer lace makes it even more practical for the heat. Allow a minimalist triangle bra or bikini to peek through for that super sexy vibe.
6. Jump in
Like dresses, jumpsuits are the epitome of effortless dressing. We’d style this with a messy side braid and flat closed-toe mules.
7. Swing, swing
Long sleeves may seem counterintuitive in hot weather, but hear us out. If you bare at least one body part, choose fabrics that allow air in, and put your hair up, it totally works. Def wearing this to work!
