Anyone else have a hard time with their summer wardrobe because let's face it, like a lot of girls most of the items hanging in your closet are black?! Fear not, because you definitely are not alone! Black is always the chicest color when it comes to your wardrobe but sometimes it's just too hot! Especially when you want to sit out in the sunshine and soak up some rays! We've put together a list of the best ways to incorporate your favorite pieces into your summer wardrobe and stay true to your style!
1) Choose light & breathable materials
Our Nora Dress here at ShoeBrats.com is a perfect example of how to rock a little black dress in the summertime! It's made of a lightweight jersey fabric with sheer golden detailing over the top for a bit of extra glam! It is oh so fierce when paired with a red lip. Looking for something a little more casual? Try our Willow dress (pictured above)! Don't be scared of taking the plunge with this sexy number. It's also made of a lightweight jersey fabric and has a unique pattern on the front. The best part about this look is you can dress it up and dress it down! Headed to the mall with the girls? Throw on your favorite tennis shoes like our Roxy's! Headed to a party? Throw on a sassy thigh-high like our Indra's!
2) Wear it on your feet!
Nothing says fabulous like a pair of amazing black heels and here at ShoeBrats we have so many pairs to choose from! Our Victoria pumps are perfect for the girl who has a whimsical element to her style. The pointy design is covered in faux-fur and is extra flirty! After a heel that's not as flashy? Our Edie heels (pictured above) are always a great choice! They pair perfectly with everything from a leather skirt to a pair of black skinny jeans.
3) Get a fabulous manicure
A great way to incorporate the color black this summer is to get a mani/pedi that shows off your style! We are absolutely obsessed with combining black with metallic colors like gold, silver and platinum! The manicure pictured above is from @NailsByCambria and is perfect for the season! Another fun idea is to switch the two colors above! try going with gold nail polish as the base and use the black for the detailing!
4) Subtle accessories
Accessorizing is probably the easiest way to work black into your summer wardrobe! Try a cool choker like our Flower Pattern Choker (pictured above) paired with any and everything from a plain t-shirt to a stunning dress! Also try carrying a black clutch or purse! It's the perfect way to bring your entire look together!
