'Pack away your tennis whites, spring/summer 13 is all about dressing on the dark side' - Vogue Magazine
Now, there are those of us who will happily wear black regardless of the time of year, but if you typically turn to brighter shades as the weather warms up, you may find the new 'summer black' hard to resist.
Many designers have gone back to black this season. And while it may seem strange to be thinking about this deadly night shade as we approach the warmer months, there is method behind their apparent madness...
As you can see, beautiful broderie anglaise, chiffon and sheer panelled pieces are just some of the ways designers have ensured that there is nothing heavy about this dark hue. And with a few well chosen accessories, or just a slick of red lipstick, you're good to go!
So, what's the new black? Black of course!
