You Can Wear Head-To-Toe Black In The Summer — & This Saint Laurent Capsule Makes It Easy


If you thought black wouldn't be a part of your summer wardrobe, think again. All it takes is one look at Saint Laurent's Net-A-Porter Capsule to see you can still keep it cool in the color. The capsule's range of ready-to-wear and accessories makes a convincing case for you to not only dip your toe into the not-so-summery shade this season, but wear it head-to-toe.

The iconic brand has come together with the fashion-girl favorite retailer to release a capsule of 29 luxe pieces. Within the collection there are signature styles, like a black sequin mini-dress and leather moto jacket as well as the "Kate" shoulder bag. However, the capsule also offers a selection of printed black pieces many of which feature musical notes — a motif that runs throughout the capsule and was originally used in the house's Fall '82 collection.

Speaking of printed pieces, another one you'll see within the range is polka dot, which is featured on a $1,290 flirty, silk-georgette mini you can easily dress up or down. For the weekend, style the skirt with the printed cotton-jersey t-shirt for $395 and the versatile "Andy" white leather sneakers, $545. As for a night out? Switch out the sneakers for a set of the $895 "Charlotte" embroidered black satin pumps and throw the $4,990 tailored leather biker jacket over your shoulders for a rocker-chic look.

Of course, if you're seeking a more structured bottom, you may find either the $2,490 high-waisted, embellished leather shorts or the charcoal glittered-denim mini skirt for $890 to your liking. Either style will team up nicely with the music note-printed, silk crepe de chine shirt. However, if you're loving the idea of incorporating the music motif into your wardrobe in a bigger way, opt for the silk-blend chiffon mini dress, which runs for $3,990.

For those looking to break up the black-on-black look, you can scoop up a denim piece from the capsule, too. Style the five-pocket denim mini skirt with the "Bedford" distressed, printed-canvas high-top sneakers for a weekend brunch with friends. And, snag the distressed denim jacket for $1,190 to give the one-shoulder, printed crepe mini dress a more relaxed vibe for concert night.

Continue on to shop pieces from the capsule and head over to Net-A-Porter to view the rest of the exclusive range.
