I think it’s fair to say that ALL clothes look great in black but can we still wear the colour black throughout the warm, summer months? The answer to that is a big YES! So, I guess a lot of you are wondering what you should do when you have lots of stunning black pieces but you don’t want to look like a moody teenager who’s been forced to go out in the sun. The answer is simple; all you have to do is choose the right styles and fabrics of black clothes to help keep you feeling cool and looking summery. Remember- anything too heavy or clingy is going to make you both look and feel extremely uncomfortable, so instead opt for lightweight, airy clothes.

Here at Everything5Pounds.com, we have the perfect black garments that are going to keep your wardrobe on point this summer. Here are a few of our favourites:


Double Breasted Gilet

Perfect to wear to the office or for a day out up town, this beautiful gilet will allow you to stay looking smart and professional whilst giving you that summery feel as well. Due to it being sleeveless and having a low-cut neckline when it’s done up, you will be able to stay feeling cool and fresh on those hot, humid days. Pair with a light top, some flared trousers and a cute pair of pumps or small heels.
