Good morning everyone, today’s post is on wearing black during the summer months. Now I am talking about black linen dresses in particular. I know black is a colour some people steer away from during the summer months due to the fact that they retain heat a little bit more than other colours. But I personally don’t think that should stop us from wearing the colour. Take it from someone who lives in a country wear it is extremely hot and I still enjoy wearing my black dresses. So I thought I would do a selection of black linen dress, do let me know what you think.



Right so this midi linen dress that I am wearing is from Phase Eight a must-have dress in my opinion as it’s versatile and comes with these gorgeous puff sleeves and playful peplum hem. A light weight dress that can easily see me going from daytime to through to night. Such a comfortable and easy dress to wear!

When looking for black linen dresses opt for feminine elements like ruffles and puff sleeves which will make your outfits look much more lighter. Another option would be to go for dresses that flash a hint of skin. The likes of strapless, Bardot and off the shoulder dresses work really well as well as cut outs too! The  key to wearing black during the summer is to opt for lighter fabrics and linen is the ideal material to go for.

When it came to styling the midi linen dress I decided to go for my caramel sandals from Dune London . I find tan and black works beautifully together. Next I grabbed my tan raffia bag which is also from Phase Eight. A raffia, wicker or basket bag looks great with almost any summer outfit for a day time look in my opinion. Finally to complete my outfit I wore my black square frame Dior sunglasses.





Like I mentioned earlier I find a basket, wicker or raffia bag to be a must-have for the summer months and for going away on vacation. They are so handy for the beach or just for everyday wear. So here are a few of my current favourites.

    I’m wearing a similar look today. I bought a linen skirt recentlyand actually like it a lot. I never like linen that much of the wrinkles, but it is very cool and airy. I adore a black look.

    To be honest I wear black pretty rarely even in cold months, you can imagine in summer!^^
    But if I’d do, this would be without doubt the best way to do it!
    Totally love that dress and the way you’ve styled it, Lovely!

    You look absolutely stunning in that linen dress and the straw bag fits perfectly. I usually don’t wear black at all (and also no linen), but your dress looks airy and summerly – and not wrinkly (linen!) at all. I like it!

    The only black dresses I’ve got in my wardrobe are patterned. I guess that’s just my style 🙂 I do have some I wear in Summer, though. Your dress is gorgeously floaty and feminine, and a wicker bag is just the right choice for Summer in my opinion! xxx

    Lovely as usual! I wish that dress haha!

    I just love that dress on you! The nude accessories are fabulous with it!

    Oh I have been looking for a dress just like this! But they are harder to find than I thought. I will have to check out this brand. And you know I am all about a black dress in summer!

    I agree that black can be worn even in hot weather, but the fabric is very important! I have a lightly woven hemp top with giant sleeves that is wonderful in hot weather.

    Dresses like this, that hang from the shoulders and otherwise barely touch one’s body, are fantastic in the heat. You look wonderful, Lovely!
