Black in the summertime? You bet. Black jeans, a simple black sundress, even a black tee is a great look for summer. And these tie cuff skinny jeans are especially cute for summer! With a white halter top and red slides, your outfit is summer ready!
A black and white outfit serves as the perfect backdrop for contrasting accessories. This is what makes the black and white POP! Read on to get some inspiration for a different look for summer.
The tie cuff jeans
Want something a little different in your black jeans? This is a very cute option! The tie at the cuff gives it a little kick which is perfect for summer. They are a classic “skinny” style in a lighter weight. I bought them in a regular length as I didn’t want them too short on my calf. Yes, that’s a first for me!! A regular black skinny jean would also work.
Black is a nice crisp color for summer, especially when it’s set off with a white top, like this white halter top.
The white halter top outfit
Do you like the style of a halter top? Although my arms need a little work in the toning department, I like the look of this style, and especially this white halter top. The fabric is a soft, tee-shirt like cotton–great for warm weather. It is another find from my local salon and boutique, Salon Zinnia. Oh my, there is WAY too much cuteness in that boutique!! But I found a very cute white halter top at Anthropologie in a cutout style. You can see it here. It is a bit like the orange halter I styled last week. You can read about it here if you missed my post.
I love the black embroidery detail on this top. Whether you wear a plain white top or one with some detail like this one, the important thing is to add a contrasting color in your shoes or accessories. In this case, these red ruffled slides added the pop I was looking for. They are still available and the price is right, so check them out!
Red tassel earrings added another pop of color to this basic black and white outfit. They are inexpensive, too, and I am getting plenty of wear out of them! Another great find from Target!
The bag I’m styling was a purchase some time ago from Sole Society. I love unique bags like this, but a red patterned bag would look amazing with this. Here is a cute tote combination I saw at SteinMart. How cute is this? I love the combination of stripes and floral. I may need a trip to SteinMart for this!
