I cannot account for the number of times I have been on the receving end of "Aren't you burning in up in that black top?" or "Are you really wearing black in this heat?", the latest being as recent as two weeks back. I don't think black insinuates winter and as someone who hails black and white as my uniform (as my guy friend recently pointed out), I wont give up on blacks just because the temperature is soaring. Haters can hate, but there is a way to wear black when the going gets hot. Opt for light fabrics and floaty silhouettes to keep you cool. Todays #ootd is an all black outfit (big surprise!) and demonstrates an all black outfit thats perfect for a hot day. The black pleated top is slinky and sheer, keeping it light, whereas the pants are a breezy cotton. The silhouettes are relaxed keeping it minimal and airy for a hot day. Monochrome doesn't have to be monotonous!
