A Summer's Evening Wearing All Black

I often try to steer clear from all black looks during the summer for two reasons: firstly, I really try to lighten up my wardrobe with the addition of prints and bold colours and secondly, because black usually makes me feel so warm! Which is definitely not what you want on a scorching hot day. But my love for an all black look doesn't end come summer, the evening's is what it's all about!

Everything I'm wearing here is from last summer and I almost didn't shoot this look for that reason - I know I for one get frustrated when I see an outfit I really love and then realise I can't actually buy any of the pieces - however, I was pleasantly surprised to find this faux leather mini skirt from New Look is still available in both regular and petite. I find it so interesting when that happens. I always try to share pieces that are currently available either online or in-store but this leads to me often ignoring previously well-loved pieces because they're old. Having said that, some pieces are really timeless; a black camisole and faux leather skirt are well loved by many and when you spot an old piece back in stores a year later, you know you've chosen a truly timeless piece.

I wanted something really simple, the type of outfit I would typically go for on a night out in the summer either in London or abroad. A black cami is a must-have and this one is from Topshop, it's no longer available but I have tried to link a few similar alternatives (here, here and here) below. Paired with a mini faux leather skirt which is a nice change from my go-to (the bodycon midi skirt), I think the leather look makes it far more evening ready and that little bit more sexy too. To brighten this look up you could go for some colourful accessories but I decided to do the opposite. I stuck to all black by wearing my black block heel sandals from Public Desire (I love these and I've just bought the nude version for the summer!) and my new Pinko bag which receives so much love any time I post it on Instagram. Pinko isn't an affordable brand but if you're looking to invest in something a little more special, you can do no wrong by choosing a timeless piece like a black bag.
