Only Wear Black? These Summer Pieces Are Perfect for You

Australia's most influential fashion identities and celebrities come together today for the highly anticipated 2017 Myer spring/summer parade, held at a private house perched on the cliffs of Coogee Beach. Between the runway and the outfits worn by attendees, one thing was clear: Black is still in for for the warmer months. In news that will delight women who dress in nothing but dark hues, a selection of summer-appropriate pieces is due to hit shelves soon. Stylist Trevor Stones presented sophisticated and smart looks from a wide range of Australian designers and every single one featured black. Not sure how to incorporate the traditionally wintry shade into your summer wardrobe? Invest in off the shoulder styles, barely there shoulder straps, and thigh-skimming dresses in lightweight fabrics, such as linen and crepe.
