For me the most elegant colour is black. It’s a strong but modest colour. You just can’t go wrong with this colour! But why do we hesitate when it comes down wearing the colour black during the summer? Is it too dark for us or do we automatically connect this colour with grey clouds and sober, dark days. Well we believe that it’s nonsense! whoever said black isn’t a colour for the summer is simply wrong. With the right accessories your outfit is totally summer proof!
For this look we are both wearing two simple black dresses from H&M. While my dress is more casual, Melisa’s dress is a little bit fancy. Two different dresses with two complete different looks. But with one thing in common: colourful accessories. The colour in your accessories light up your entire outfit; it adds a pop of colour so that your look isn’t too dark and sober for this weather. It’s important that you choose two items of (colourful) accessories. Shoes and a bag, or shoes and one piece of jewellery. Otherwise your look it a little bit too ‘matchy matchy’. Yes, black is a save colour but a colour that gets out of style. You simply can’t go wrong with a black dress. All you need is some great accessories to bright up your outfit.
“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all.” ― Coco Chanel
