WEARING BLACK IN THE HEAT

WEARING BLACK IN THE HEAT

For the majority of the fashion industry, we can say that black is hands down the chicest "colour" in any wardrobe - it's classic, always in style, and goes with pretty much everything. Despite what some people claim, there is no "new black." However, the tricky thing about wearing black all the time is transitioning it into your closet when the climate starts to heat up - I know I definitely struggle with outfitting in the Spring and Summer or even when I jet off to a tropical destination. There was a quote that I heard in a video once that said, "you're weak if you can't wear black in the Summer." So, this is a nod to my fellow warriors out there who are still dressed in black even when it feels like you're being cooked from the inside out. Hopefully these outfits will help inspire you all and give you ideas on how to rock the darkest shade in the crayon box.

Like everything else in this world, the key to a good wardrobe are the basics: a white t-shirt and your everyday pair of blue jeans. Five years ago I would have said these pieces were boring and not very stylish together because there isn't anything special to the outfit. Fast forward to present day and I now say the opposite - a classic white tee and and your favourite pair of jeans definitely go a long way (as an outfit on their own or mixed in with other garments). I find that there is so much beauty in the simplest of outfits these days, especially during the warmer seasons, and it's like Leonardo Da Vinci said, "simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication."

I swear some days it's just so difficult to get out of bed - just five more minutes, but you actually mean five more hours. And once you've finally mustered the strength to move there's the next step of getting ready and deciding what to wear which ultimately makes you want to curl back into a ball and pull the sheets over your head all over again. Maybe it's because of what feels like the longest and coldest winter we've ever had in years, but I know I'm not the only one who's snoozed their alarms one too many times in the morning. On my laziest days, I try to make my morning routine as painless as possible - which means having my closet stocked with classic pieces where I can outfit my day within minutes and still look chic, effortless, and comfortable.
