You might be thinking ice cream pastels, sun-bleached ivories or chalky whites. Summer's come hither, with its leggy hours that dip well into a long evening. Summer calls into play a flirtatious 4 o'clock sun, dancing against the leafy shadows of the tall trees that line the streets you find yourself. You succumb to the charms of chiaroscuro. It's a good season.
With the bright summer sun, also comes your summer shade. Simple, dramatic, cuts-t0-the-chase dark clothing options that turn a bright summer, into a summer of cool. Midnight blacks carry the day. Clean lines + dirty minds.
Is there such a thing as a good-girl Goth? This avant garde licorice hued sleeveless trapeze dress sets sail, broodingly over a pair of Gothic black printed leggings. Observe the pouty girl in her sky-tower sandals, black patented + studded, who is as prone to kicking out as much attitude as an arrogant rooster presiding over its high noon.
Cockerel, I think you've met your match.
