So I hear it’s really hot in America right now. It’s not quite hot enough “for me” here in Berlin, but I guess the grass is always greener. In any case, it can be challenging for someone who loves post punk/lives in New York/is colorblind to negotiate the summer months while still wearing mostly black, most of the time. But whenever I’m about to give up and wear white, I listen to Dum Dum Girls (pictured) and put on my evilest romper. Or shift. Or beach cover-up. Can any of these things actually be evil? I don’t think so. Anyway, here are some black summer dresses.
