Let’s face it: monochromatic looks work wonders. They elongate your body while bringing a certain element of cool to the game. However, it’s hard to feel cool in an all-black outfit during the summer when temperatures climb high and humidity reaches its peak (in some parts of the country). In the same way the extreme cold can impair our judgment when it comes to fashion choices, this can be said for extreme heat as well.

It is quite the contrary in this Fashionista’s case. She has layered a sheer black, oversized mesh T-shirt over a black Calvin Klein bralette. Additionally, she is wearing black leather shorts and nude, patent leather, ankle-strap heels. For accessories, she has kept it simple by wearing a nameplate necklace and a classic gold watch.

This look is perfect for a night out during the summer, without sacrificing style. The sheer top is lightweight, making it easier to handle the heat. The bralette is fashionable, and its cotton fabric is comfortable and breathes. Heeled sandals are great for letting your feet stay cool and showing off a fresh pedicure.

To take this look into the fall, switch out the leather shorts for black jogger pants. Tuck your sheer top into the pants, and layer a black leather jacket over your shoulders. Opt for a pair of black booties, instead of sandals.
