My wardrobe has a lot of black in it. I love its simplicity and how easy it is to coordinate. It creates a wonderful blank canvas on which to showcase accessories and is invaluable for travel. It looks stylish in all but the cheapest fabrics…and even then it’s chic. In short, it hides a multitude of sins and makes life easy.
Moving to a warmer climate means I’ll change how and when I wear black. I won’t give it up because it’s part of my personal style recipe and I feel confident wearing it.
I have many favorite pieces in black but they soak up more heat than the same item in a lighter color.
Tuesday I wore a column of black with a touch of gray for a day of running errands. My cotton tee is sleeveless and the duster is silk which are both natural fibers so they breathe and feel cool. The pants are not a natural fiber but the sandals saved them.
I pinned my hair up which felt cooler instantly then I added a hat for the sun.
Head to toe black worked this day but as the temps pass 90 I will be wanting lighter colors and natural fabrics. I expect black to become the supporting color rather than my usual column color.
Do you have a color you struggle to wear in the warm weather?
Thanks for reading and have a great day!
