1. Backless bodysuits

This summer, I'm really obsessed with bodysuits, particularly backless bodysuits. They're sexy, chic, and perfect for hot weather. Here, I paired my bodysuit with a patterned mini skirt and platform Oxfords.

2. Black midi dress

I love this feminine midi dress. A long black dress is a very versatile piece for summer. The top is strappy, while the bottom is more modest, which creates a very balanced look. I kept it casual with flat sandals on my feet.

3. Androgynous

This next all-black outfit really mixes the masculine with the feminine. I've been loving Bermuda shorts recently, as they're practical and comfy.

I paired them with a crop top/sports bra, threw a short-sleeved shirt over the top as a light jacket, plus I added my platform Oxfords into the mix.

4. Classic t-shirt and shorts

Here, I simply swapped the crop top and shirt for a baggy t-shirt. I tucked the t-shirt into my Bermuda shorts for a little definition at the waist. This is an easy casual all-black summer outfit to put together.

Heading into the evening, this all-black outfit feels glam and sexy. I'm wearing a sleeveless turtleneck bodysuit with a mini skirt that has gold detailing. The strappy sandals let you know it's party time!

6. All-black Bardot

This look is also sexy, but with a bit more of a laidback vibe. I love this off-shoulder, puff-sleeve Bardot top. The flowy pants and belt add a sophisticated touch, while the flat sandals are more practical.

7. Party in the back

From the front, this just looks like a plain black t-shirt, pants, and sneakers, but when I turn around... there's a party in the back! I love details like this that add interest to an otherwise plain monochrome outfit.

8. 90s vibes

This is really cool because all I did here was swap the top for an oversized t-shirt, and I wore a cute little black bucket hat as an accessory. The 90s aesthetic is still very much on-trend, but this is also, of course, super comfortable.

9. Party in the front

This all-black outfit also gives off a lot of 90s and early 00s vibes, but those vibes are definitely sexier. I love the revealing detail at the front of this top - wearing it makes me feel very daring! A black mini skirt and chunky heels complete the look.

10. Dresses as skirts

Next up, I'm actually wearing a bodycon mini dress and then I wore a loose tee over the top. This is a great way to get versatility out of your wardrobe items - dresses can double as skirts and tops.

This all-black outfit has a great smart-casual balance; I could wear it out to brunch or out to an evening dinner.

11. Simple t-shirt dress

Here, I'm wearing a black t-shirt dress and my trusted pair of Oxford platforms. The accessory that really pulls off this look is the belt; it accentuates my waistline and adds an element of interest. However, if I get too hot, the belt can come off so the dress can flow better.

12. Silk & sneakers

I love the unexpected combo of a black silk midi dress, which almost looks like a nightgown, worn with sneakers. Suddenly, a sexy clothing item is dressed down and feels more casual. Don't be afraid to reimagine your favorite garments in different ways.

13. Rips & cuts

If it's not too hot where you live, then black jeans are a chic option for summer. This pair has rips up the front, which feels summery as well as edgy. I dressed up the jeans with my cross-back bodysuit, plus a pair of heels. I'm ready for a night on the town!

14. Short but chic

Jean shorts aren't just for the beach! Here, I dressed up my cut-off jean shorts (which I cut myself) with a flowy, long-sleeve blouse, then added some low-heeled sandals. This takes me straight from the sand to an evening out.

15. Cute cami

This outfit follows a classic formula: lace camisole, jeans or pants, plus heels. Here, I've put my own twist on the look with trendy pants that flare a little at the ankle, as well as loafer-style chunky heels. I love injecting a bit of my own personality into a timeless style.
