A colourful print on a black-base fabric is the best way to soften up a dark wardrobe palette. Choose a couple of the shades from the print to add a pop of colour with accessories and your makeup.
Pick one bright shade, to create a block colour look to match with classic black. If you're pear-shaped where the bright colour on top teamed with a dark bottom. To complete this look match that pop of colour for your lips.
Nothing beats a classic black bikini and sunglasses, but opt for a crochet coloured cover-up to layer over your swimwear. this way your look is still classic but fun.
If your wedded on wearing black head-to-toe, pick a fabric that is soft and relaxed like linen. Bang on-trend, this summer this fabric looks relaxed and will help to stay cool when the temperature rises.
