WHAT TO WEAR: Summer

Sunlight, I know we have had our issues in the past since you always bring the unbearable heat with you, but don’t ever leave me again. Now that the weather in Texas is finally reflecting the season, we can put away our umbrellas and rain boots (at least for now) and go back to our favorite colorful outfits for summer. However, although we have been blessed with the sun again, there is a new trend for summer that Fashionistas like Kate Moss have embraced. It goes against everything people have been told to wear for summer. I introduce to you this season’s new trend: summer black. No longer are pastels and bright colors the sole trend for summer. Fashionistas/os are adding this new look to their wardrobes this summer and breaking from the season’s pretty and playful colors by replacing them with dark and daring black.

This Fashionista decided to keep it classic and cool with a black scoop neck T-shirt, a flirty floral skirt and red polka-dot sneakers to add a pop of color to this bold, black outfit. Fabrics like cotton are thin and do not trap heat, making them perfect for the dreadfully hot summer weather that Texas is known for, unlike polyester and leather. Even though black is taking over this summer, do not be afraid to add some color to your outfit with accessories like a trendy clutch or a cute cross-body bag.

One Simple Change: If you want to take this look from day to night, I suggest switching out the comfortable, casual sneakers for some strappy, sexy sandals with a high stiletto heel. It will make your outfit look even more chic while also giving you some height and confidence.
