Black is classically chic, flattering, and oh-so-easy to pair—which makes it a great color for any time of year. Read Fashion Fabrics Club’s favorite ways to wear black this summer.

Black Slip DressSilk slip dress

The silk slip dress is a forever summer favorite for it’s lightweight breeziness. This summer, the no-brainer toss-on is best served in black if you’re craving something that can be easily dressed up or down. Through it on with a killer pair of heels for an evening out, or slip into a simple sandal to keep things casual.

Black Lace ShortsLace shorts

Shorts have a natural tendency to give off a dressed-down vibe, but not when they’re done in black lace. (Note: make sure you add a tonal cotton underlay if making your own! And if looking for added comfort, use a drawstring or elastic waist.) Easily dress it up with silky top and statement jewelry, or take a more casual route by pairing them with a cotton T and chambray button up.

Black Cotton JoggersCotton joggers

The athleisure moment is far from over, and doing these laid-back luxe pieces in black can give them a more sophisticated spin. Try the season’s drawstring cotton joggers in black with dressy accents like faux leather panels and golden hardware on the drawstrings.

Black Linen OverallsLinen overalls

You’ve probably noticed overalls making a comeback. They’re youthful and fun, but they can easily stray towards appearing too little girlish. In black linen, however, they look so much more grown up. Bonus: the linen is so airy and light that this piece keeps you cool (and still covered) even on the hottest summer days.

Black over the shoulderOff-the-shoulder top

The off-the-shoulder look (or, as it’s better known this season, the “cold shoulder” look) is big this summer. Try the trend in a black cotton/linen blend top with smocking along the neckline to allow it to stretch over the shoulders, and stay up securely.
