As much as I love to play with vibrant summery colors, it’s hard to resist putting together a classic all-black look. But somewhere along the line, wearing black became a fashion don’t for our summer wardrobes. Many claim that the dark shade just isn’t summer appropriate, but I beg to differ. Yes, black can feel summery too, and definitely adds a little oomph to your wardrobe during the warmer months all depending on how you choose to rock it. Plus, black is one of the only hues that is super forgiving and flatters all figures. Are you sold yet?
From Zendaya Coleman to Taraji P. Henson, we’ve seen a few of our favorite celebrities giving major style envy this week, wearing all black everything. Ready to give your closet a dark makeover? Get into the looks and a few must-have alternatives.
Can I just say that I am obsessed with Zendaya‘s age-appropriate yet ultra-chic style? The multitalented star stepped out wearing a culotte jumpsuit with a cut-out top, proving that the silhouette isn’t as tricky as one might think. Her high top-knot and strappy stilettos make her runway ready.

Kate Mara is giving me so much life with her new pixie cut. The actress paired the edgy look with an equally edgy Valentino leather dress accented by feminine bows. She paired the look with black heels and a super daring vamp lip. SLAY!
