You're not supposed to wear black during the summer. Right? Well, not exactly. If you're anything like this editor, avoiding the dark hue altogether for three months is not an option. C'mon, black is just chic. Period. And it appears some of our favorite celebs agree.
Below, we're highlighting how A-listers like Victoria Beckham, Gigi Hadid, Olivia Palermo, and more are wearing (and pulling off without overheating!) black this summer.

Feeling the unbearable heat out there but just unable to give up your slimming black pieces? Gigi Hadid knows what's up, with an easy tank and breathable leggings. We love her trick of rolling up one side of the top for extra breathing room.
On those crazy-hot nights when you don't want to wear your standard LBD, take Daisy's lead and go for a lace frock instead. And don't be afraid of showing your undergarments—it totally works and is incredibly fashion forward right now.
The best way to make thicker black pieces work for the summer months is to find items that have cutout details that let extra air in. Case in point: Olivia Palermo's sweater with cutout shoulders. Her strappy black sandals and cropped pants also work well in the heat.

On those chillier June mornings (when you know the heat is coming by noon), layering is key. Toss a black jacket over black separates (like Victoria Beckham's top and printed pants—a great way to break up solid black).
