How To Pull Off All-Black In Warm Weather


Wearing head-to-toe black will never go out of style but there’s a way to do it in warm weather so that you don’t overheat or give people the impression that you’re a staffer at whatever venue you’ve chosen to visit. (Let’s face it, being asked ‘Do you work here?’ is never a good feeling.) Here, two key tricks to employ the next time you reach for an all-black outfit, demonstrated by the ultra-chic founder of Rodial skincare Maria Hatzistefanis.

Styling Trick: Focus On Weightless Fabrics

A gauzy black maxi dress is effortlessly glamorous for day or night. Bring a bit of liveliness and fun into the look with a bright accessory (we love Maria's red sunnies) or a bold-color lipstick.

Styling Trick: Look For Skin-Baring Cuts

A bit of interesting texture and a tasteful flash of skin take a black-skirt-and-top combo from Working The Event to Owning The Event in an instant. Flat sandals give the look a spring and daytime-appropriate spin.
