Black – in the middle of the summer? While we may be more accustomed to floaty white blouses and dresses during the sunny season, black has never been so cool.
Ok, so it may be a little sticky if you’re living in dessert-like temperatures, but over here in the UK we can take advantage of our cooler evenings and breezy days. Just as you can never go wrong with a black swimsuit or little black dress, it’s the colour of choice for summer daytime wear when you want to exude that classy, understated and slightly gothic-chic look. For designer women’s fashion, black is so easy to dress up in the evenings with some statement jewellery or a splash of colour.
Black is such a versatile colour that the options are limitless – LBDs can be dressed up with some killer heels, down with some boho sandals, or made sporty-chic with some funky trainers. Black can take you to the office or club – it can be sophisticated or edgy. Or both.
Funeral black. That was the theme at Marc Jacob’s final show for Louis Vuitton, and it was his way of saying goodbye to his 16-year tenure at the house. Black signalled the end – everything was black and every model donned a dramatic feather headdress. Many designers out there have shown their appreciation of summer black since.
Black is set to be all the rage this summer, and we at V & V couldn’t be happier. A black dress or blouse is something that will never date – it’ll be your go-to item in your wardrobe and make you feel instantly special. For those interested in designer women’s fashion, you’ll be spoilt for choice at V & V. From our fabulous Assyrie Blouse and Black Zoe Cowl Top to our Mideau Dress and Sama Tunic, get heads turning in one of our designer pieces.
Are you ready to be a black beauty this summer?
