If, like me, you consider your style to be for the most part classic, chances are you have quite a few black pieces in your wardrobe.  Styling black pieces during the spring and summer months to give them a light, airy and seasonal feel can sometimes be tricky, and one of the ways I like to add a cooler vibe to my black pieces is to pair them with lighter colors, and lightweight textures and designs.

To style these black linen culottes (similar here), which are somewhat of a staple in my wardrobe, I paired them with my lightweight, light blue V-Neck Top.  I added my light blue Bowed Mule, and my Gucci Crossbody Bag as accessories.  I love this color pairing because it seems to lighten up the look of the black culottes, while also maintaining the classic feel of the outfit.  If you have a lot of black pieces in your wardrobe, that you would like to give a lighter look during the summer months, in today’s “Style Guide,” I’m sharing a few tips for styling your black pieces for summer.

Style Guide:  Tips For Styling Black During Summer

Pair Black Pieces With Lighter Colors – There is nothing more classic than a simple black and white pairing, and you can also pair black with other light colors like light blue, yellow, pink and other pastels.

Style Black With Airy Prints And Patterns – Pairing your black pieces with florals and stripes, will automatically add a summer feel to the look.

Lighten Up Your Black Pieces With Summer Accessories – A straw bag or hat, and a floral accessory of any kind will give your black pieces a cool summer vibe.

Go With Lightweight Black Pieces – Style black pieces that are lightweight and appropriate for the season.  Linen, cotton, and other lighter fabrics are great for black summer styles.
