How To Wear A Black Dress In A Summer Kind Of Way

Yes, there is totally such a thing as a black summer dress, and not only that, but it can look light and colorful when dolled up with good shoes and fun accessories.

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.
