With summer well and truly upon us here in the Middle East (also known as #AirConSeason), it's easy to relegate our black items of clothing to the back of our closets until December rolls around again but here's how you can wear the hue, even on the hottest days of the year.
CANDICE SWANEPOEL: Candice Swanepoel's ensemble is all the more classic because it is in black.
ROMEE STRIJD: Finish off your outfit with delicate jewellery or lady-like accessories if you're afraid of it appearing too harsh.
CHIARA FERRAGNI: Even on the hottest days of summer, you can wear head-to-toe black, according to the fashionista Chiara Ferragni.
EMILY RATAJKOWSKI: There's no rule that states your favourite sundress can't be in black. Keep it summery by teaming with sunglasses and espadrilles.
KARLIE KLOSS: Wearing head-to-toe black is actually great for summer workwear – it will simply add elegance.
LILY DONALDSON: Keep black feminine by choosing floaty or sheer pieces.
VICTORIA BECKHAM: Assume you have to wear white to Wimbledon? Think again.
JOAN SMALLS: Simple strappy black dresses can be the saving grace in anyone's summer wardrobe.
TAYLOR HILL: And as shown by Taylor Hill, they transition perfectly from day to night (although you may want to leave the leather at home...)
COCO ROCHA: If you want to introduce some softer details to your outfit, but don't love colour, try mixing your black pieces with white for a touch of monochrome.
ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY: Contrary to popular belief, black actually accentuates a tan.
ALEXA CHUNG: Opt for seasonal accessories and bold lipstick to soften your look.
ASHLEY GRAHAM: Ashley Graham proves that LBDs should be worn whatever the weather.
KENDALL JENNER: Even in the warmer months, there's no need to pack away your black skinnies. Pair them with a crop top and a light jacket for your next mall visit à la Kendall Jenner.
UMA THURMAN: An easy way to pare down a black summer look is to add a straw sunhat.
