Maxi Dress and Sandals

Summer Outfits for Black Women

Summer demands lightweight, breathable fabrics. You mustn’t find yourself out and about sweating buckets in layers. We abhor layers this season, so make sure you stay away from more than two layers at the most lest you catch a heat stroke.

The perfect solution? A maxi dress. It’s long enough if you’re worried about too much sun exposure (please don’t skip the sunscreen), but thin enough you’ll feel cool and comfy all day. Go for linen or cotton ones, obviously. Bold prints are trending this season so a bit of color and pattern would not be amiss.

The perfect footwear isn’t talked about enough when it comes to summer attire, but we assure you it will always be sandals. The perfect pair which won’t have you become the owner of stinky socks at the end of the day and will keep your legs airy and well, cool

Crop Top and High-Waisted Shorts

Honestly, we can never get tired of crop tops anytime soon. Of all the 90s trends we are obsessing over, this might be one of the faves. It’s comfortable enough to be worn everywhere and perfect for a hot summer. A cute one in a fun print, solid color, or dramatic quotes should put you right on top of the trending pyramid.  Pair it with high-waisted denim shorts (a classic deep blue will do nicely) for a casual summer ensemble.

Jumpsuits have become a staple in recent years and show no signs of going away anytime soon. 2023 will probably have a variety of jumpsuit trends coming up, particularly floral prints and bold colors. The one-piece garment is effortlessly versatile and easy enough to dress up and down for any occasion. We recommend a lightweight fabric for this one and pairing it with statement accessories will elevate your outfit.

Off Shoulder Top and Denim Skirt

Project a casual summery vibe with an off-shoulder top of solid color or a playful pattern. The quote trend is still going strong, so that won’t be amiss either. Pair it with a classic denim skirt and sandals for the perfect relaxed, effortless summer outfit which will have you looking cute and cool in the sun.

Flowy Wide Leg Pants and Tank Top

Summer Outfits for Black Women

Tank tops are the holy grail for every aesthetic fashion girlie in 2023. It goes with everything and is a necessary staple in your wardrobe, a ‘basic’ if you will. They make an appearance in all sorts of fashion aesthetics, from retro to emo they are a must, so get your hands on one if you didn’t already have one.

We think tank tops are a god given in summers, meant to be lazed around in and just chill. But if you dress it up, bam, it becomes a ‘going out’ outfit as well. So just change out your pajamas for a pair of pretty flowy wide-leg pants and you’re good to go. With monochromatic styling on the rise, try styling both of them in the same shades or tones for an elevated outfit.

Wrap Dress

Channel your inner Hawaii vacation vibes without going to Hawaii with a fun wrap dress in prints or bold colors. It’s 2023 so floral prints are so in, ditch the gloomy colors and opt for vibrant shades and pretty designs for the perfect girly dress. Tie-dye is also an acceptable option when it comes to dresses. Top it up with a pair of cute wedges to complete the outfit.

Ruffled Blouse and White Jeans

When we say jeans, you’re probably thinking dark denim, and yes, they’re a classic and go well with everything. But summer calls for light and fun colors, and here is where you get your rarely utilized white jeans out and style them accordingly (also they absorb considerably less heat). A ruffled blouse with intricate details will go nicely. Plus, don’t forget your sandals.
