Whoever said summer is not the time for black definitely needs to rethink their outlook on fashion. Summer is the perfect time for any color, which includes black, as long as you know how to pair and style your outfit. One of my favorite styling trends is to pair black on black. Black is my favorite color and to be honest, my wardrobe is probably 95 percent all-black. This Fashionista uses layering to create an all-black look that gives off a grunge, but also summery vibe.

At first glance, you would think that this Fashionista was sporting a one piece T-shirt dress. However, she layers a longer plain black T-shirt on top of the slip by Free People to add a lace trim to the bottom. The lace adds femininity and a romantic twist on to the overall look and works because it balances the grunginess of the color black itself. My favorite item of her look is definitely her Jeffrey Campbell gothic-inspired sandals. I do not think I could ever pull off this pair of shoes, but this Fashionista makes it work 110 percent. Continuing the color trend, her accessories are kept to a minimal as she accessorizes with small chain necklaces and the clic-clac H Hermès bracelet. To complete her outfit, she carries a structured handbag and tops it off with a pair of cat-eye sunglasses.
