BLACK IS MY HAPPY COLOUR! – How to wear black through the summer months:

It’s mid-July and with highs of 30+ degrees, you might think it would be ridiculous to try and style black outfits. Black is not a colour typically associated with summer – it’s more of an autumn/winter thing. Summer months are for yellows, blues, greens… Actually pretty much any colour other than black!

But sue me, I’m a rule-breaker!

love wearing black. I feel most confident in black. I am the definition of “I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour”. To me, it says class, simplicity and edge all at the same time. An LBD is a timeless staple in every woman’s wardrobe. There is just absolutely no way I am putting my black outfits on hold for 3 months. I would be so lost!

So, I have put together a few different outfits to show you how I personally have been/will be styling black outfits throughout the summer months. If you are like me and can’t live without the darkest colour ever to exist, then keep scrolling for some inspo!

Enjoy! x


Outfit Number 1

A black denim skirt is such a staple wardrobe piece! It goes with everything, and is definitely suitable for sunny days. Paired with a silky leotard, and some lace up flatforms to elongate the legs.

Outfit Number 2

A classic LBD. I love high necklines, which can be tricky to style in summer but I think the open arms and the mini dress leave just enough skin on show. Bold statement earrings dress the outfit up, and some studded heels add an edge. I felt very chic.

Outfit Number 3

Playsuits are summer essentials – an entire outfit in one piece! And anything bardot is a yes from me when it’s hot outside.

Outfit Number 4

Jumpsuits are another staple. This one can easily be dressed up with heels or down with sliders/trainers. It’s perfect for all occasions and the wide legs are both practical and on-trend.

Outfit Number 5

Statement T-Shirts seem to be my go—to at the moment. And ripped jeans are always a winner. Sometimes it’s good to let your accessories do the talking!

(All of the above outfits are tagged on my 21 Buttons account, so you can shop them easily!)

I hope you have found some inspiration from my outfits! My message to you is, don’t be scared to wear black during the summer months – it is definitely workable when you find the right style to suit the weather! I don’t care what anyone says, black is always a winner. And I believe women who wear black lead the most colourful lives.
