Summer Black Beauty

Summer Black Beauty

Black in the summer? Really? Yes! But (!) black is perfect if the sun doesn’t shine. Sometimes it’s cloudy although the temperatures reach 30 degrees – this was the case today. And because I’m working at the office the whole day I always have a little jacket with me (the air-conditioner is so cold!). In the following days they promised me a great weather… until Monday. On Monday there shall be rain and only 20 degrees. Do you call that summer? You see, I’m moaning already.

Advices for wearing black in the summer:

  • Wear clothes made of light material – nothing heavy and no knitted fabrics
  • Look for cut-outs in the pieces you put on, so that the skin has places to breath
  • Speaking of breathing: avoid polyester in the summer – it’s absolutely horrible
  • Means: get some clothing made of linen, cotton or silk (cools the skin wonderfully)


Schwarz im Sommer? Wirklich? Ja! Aber (!) schwarz ist perfekt, wenn die Sonne nicht scheint. Manchmal ist es bewölkt, obwohl die Temperaturen auf 30 Grad klettern – das war jedenfalls heute der Fall. Und weil ich den ganzen Tag im Büro bin, habe ich immer eine kleine Jacke dabei (die Klimaanlage ist so kalt!). In den nächsten Tagen haben sie mir tolles Wetter versprochen… bis Montag. Am Montag soll es regnen und nur 20 Grad werden. Nennt ihr das vielleicht Sommer? Ihr seht, ich jammere jetzt schon.

Tipps fürs Tragen der Farbe Schwarz im Sommer:

  • Tragt Kleidungsstücke aus leichtem Material – nichts Schweres und kein Strick
  • Sucht nach Cut-Outs in den Stücken, die ihr anzieht, so dass die Haut Stellen zum Atmen hat
  • Apropos atmen: vermeidet im Sommer Polyester – es ist eine absolute Katastrophe
  • Bedeutet: schnappt euch Teile aus Leinen, Baumwolle oder Seide (kühlt die Haut ganz wunderbar)

    love the lace dress! The openwork is perfect for summer and a stunning detail. I also love that gorgeous bag, and jacket. I agree, sometimes AC is SO cold.

    Ich liebe schwarz im Sommer und bin verzweifelt auf der Suche nach einem leichten Maxikleid, das man zu allen Begebenheiten anziehen kann.
    Besonders toll finde ich übrigens auch deine Tasche *-*!

    So wie Du schwarz trägst, liebe Stella, ist es einfach perfekt für den Sommer! Was für Dein tolles Kleid, es steht Dir so gut, als wenn es für Dich gemacht wäre <3 Perfekt mit den schönen Sandalen und die Jacke hat es mir auch sehr angetan :) Bei uns hatte der Wetterbericht für heute eigentlich Regen angekündigt und nun strahlt die Sonne vom Himmel … hoffentlich ist es bei Euch heute und die ganze neue Woche über auch so!

    Black really suits you! I love this colour, but especially in winter. In summer I often wear white instead, because of the hot temperatures that we have here in Italy.
    Have a nice deay, dear

  17. July 6, 2014 / 2:33 pm

    I really like the whole outfit.
    The dress suits you perfectly and with those shoes, the bag and the jacket it all looks like heaven.

    Very good choice.

    Lots of love,

    I’m all about wearing a light all cotton outfit for the summer. Also anything flowy that invites the breeze in. I think that helps me stay cool.
    I love that cutout bag, by the way :D
