Start with a slip-on black dress (no complicated infrastructure) made from a lightweight, swingy jersey to keep things cool. Add in a colorful bag and charming earrings, which add summery details. Finish off the outfit with neutral-colored peep toes and an architectural-looking cuff bracelet that will pull everything together in the chicest possible way.
