I don’t know what it is lately, but I have been on a black kick. I’d resisted it for a while, and even wore (gasp!) white on Morrissey’s birthday a while back! Some may say that summer is the worst time to wear black, but I think it brings an unexpected dose of sophistication to your standard breezy outfit, like this one. I could have worn this punchy skirt with pink, blue, or grey, but instead I chose to wear a slinky little top with a masculine belt, edging up the flounce of the chipper fabric. I love finding ways to look like I’m not sweating my butt off in 100 degree weather too, and black jersey cotton seems to mask the appearance of a little dampness. Have y’all been wearing black this summer?
