Girl Crush: The Black Factor

Wednesday, August 1, 2012
Crikey, who would have thought that black can be so stunning in summer? I love the lace, her matching black nails, the pale lips and the fanciful loose bun that makes the whole outfit so wearable and irresistable. Swoon. Lovelies, do you wear black during summer? Would you wear this dress? xo

P.S: And a few other cuties you might like.

She looks really stylish and the hairdo is swoon-worthy for sure. Jill

I remember when Garance posted this originally and I thought the same thing - so simple, so poised, so perfect.

She looks very elegant. I'm a big fan of black, all year round. (I love her hair!)

Wow, her styling makes the black nail polish look elegant and mildly subversive instead of just punk. Love the look!

I do, black is a staple in my wardrobe.
I love to add a pop of color to it in the summer :)

I too was stunned at this post from the wonderful Garance. I love the idea of black in the summer...it's a new notion for me but I think you need it. It keeps everything so effortlessly chic. xxx

Good point, TheChambrayCountess! I am always afraid to wear black nails but now I crave it so much.

I always wear black, even in the summer, it's one of my favorite colours!

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy - but mysterious. But above all black says this: "I don’t bother you - don’t bother me".”


― Yohji Yamamoto
