Sure we all love summer whites, but isn’t it easier to wear all black, especially when you live and work in the city? To summer-ize my often all black wardrobe, I like to add a few surprise bursts of bright color. My black M Missoni tank has a multicolor kaleidoscope print on the back and my bright blue clutch bag becomes the center of attention when worn with all black.
The summer solstice kicked off this week which means the clock is officially ticking on getting the most mileage out of your whites until Labor Day.

Eva Longoria takes an easy romper and gives it a chic update with a blazer and pumps. A romper is so easy to wear in the summer. You don’t have to worry about matching and it is a versatile piece you can dress up or down. Try this black and white polka dot romper by Madewell.
