Primark Black Summer Rebel High Summer 2016

Summer Rebel

Never accept anything as "the new black". Black is the ONLY new black! For fans of the darkest shade, nothing will ever be as lasting, versatile, timeless, or easy to wear. The midnight tone's ready for anything, and keeps you just a little mysterious... This summer, we’re making the case for black-on-black, all season long. But before you go all Morticia Addams on us (!), here are a few good tips…

There’s no such thing as too much black

Layer it up, wear it as clothes, shoes and accessories, and even dabble in black lipstick or nail polish if you want to go all out. The head-to-toe, everything-black outfit says chic and simplicity, and – win! – you only have to do one dark load on laundry day.

Light layers are your salvation

For daytime, an all-black look keeps you looking slim and chic -- and keeps you warm, too ("black attracts the sun", right?). But dropping evening temps can catch out any newbie black fan, so don’t forget a light layer. Crocheted jackets, fringed vests, a kimono or a linen blazer – if you like a tailored look – keep you warm when the sun sets.

Texture, not prints and patterns

Thinking black's a little boring? 1. we hope we’re slowly changing your mind, and 2. it’s not! To add something to "break it up" (not us black-wearers' fave expression, BTW) then pick texture over prints or patterns. This season crocheting is the hottest texture, while ripped and raw-hem denim keeps you cool.

When you just have to have color

IOHO, we think the only summer colors you need are azure seas and turquoise pools (aren’t we poetic?); but if you HAVE to add a splash of color – that's not technically water – amp up beach looks with colorful towels and bright-accented bikinis. You can also use jewelry and accessories to get some more color in your life – think gemstones, rose-gold accents, and embroidered or embellished handbags.

Primark

Swimsuit   $18

Ignore the rumors (who looks like Wednesday Addams? whatevs...) and embrace this alt summer look. Guaranteed you’ll feel 100% "too cool for school". Bonus: your new uniform makes getting ready in the morning wayyy easier. You can thank us later, chicas. So come on – join the dark side!
