The All-Black Summer Shopping Guide: What to Buy If You Can't With Color

If bright colors and patterns aren't really your thing, then a majority of the trending summer items of the year do not sit well with you. Floral dresses, tie-dye bikinis, and bold separates are never going to find a home in your wardrobe and thankfully for you, they don't ever have to. The color black has received a bad wrap for attracting the sun, making you hotter, and even sometimes as being the most boring hue of them all, but you and I both know that black is in fact the chicest color on the color wheel and the shopping list below proves it. 

Including dresses, bottoms, shoes, swimwear, and more, the comprehensive list of all-black summer shopping will have you feeling excited instead of limited by your favorite color. If you just can't with color, I promise you that you will leave here with a new appreciation for the classic hue and a summer wardrobe that suits you perfectly.
