usually it's not such a huge challenge wearing black in the summer, but this year every weekend in june had temperatures near record highs. light-colored clothing seemed to be the natural choice every time.
i did manage to break out the black once. i thought this Helmut Lang top, with its slinky fabric and open back, would be a good candidate for summertime black, especially when paired with some crisp white trousers.

p.p.s. i hope you'll excuse my schizophrenic dressing - i go from preppy to modern to girly from week to week, it's difficult for me to stick to one style aesthetic!
