Nothing annoys me quite as much as when people say "ooh but it's black.. isn't that a bit boring?". To me, black is harmonic, it's understated and it's sophistication in the highest. It doesn't scream, it doesn't fuss and it does what it's told (that and it's the simplest thing to style i.e. 15 more minutes in bed that morning, thank you very much).
There comes a time when social norms push us to stop wearing the 'dullities' of A\W and conform to summertime sunshine wearing pastels and dresses and all things girly. Well, we say no. We like black. What do you expect.. we're bloggers! We may submit for the odd garden party and wear a coloured frock *gasps and crosses fingers* but for the most part, we're going to make it work with our old faithful. Here are some of the best examples of styling black in summer that we can remember.
