Get The Edge of Summer: Shopping Tips by Louis Paul Pisano.

It's that time of year again, SUMMER. Tank tops, colorful pants, flip flops, neon sunglasses are all the rage but you're not like everyone else. While they run to the nearest Jil Sander, Prada, and Dsquared you head the opposite direction. You say to yourself summer is no reason to look like a box of Crayola crayons. Yet you can't exactly run into your closet and wear those black leather Rad Hourani pants you've been rocking all winter. So how does one do summer on a edgy, monocromatic scale? Watch.
Let's start with the foundation. It's hot outside so you want to wear a tank top, but not a boring old basic body hugging piece of fabric. You want classic with a twist. I propose a Claude Maus tank. It's your classic tank top with a draped scarf neck.

But it's BLACK! And it's SUMMER! you think, well this tank top is made of a superfine jersey that gives maximum breatheabilty. PROBLEM SOLVED. And remember black is very slimming.
Moving on. You've established you want to wear black. Great for you. But menswear below the waist has gone to both extremes of the spectrum. You're still not sure about this new trend of leggings and "skirts" so you stick with a pair of shorts. Now what kind? Leather? Yeah NO. So you decide on cotton. Lanvin has this classic and casual pair.

Cuffed at the bottom and falling just above the knee, these beauties are versatile enough for the transition to evening should you opt out on trousers.
Now on to footwear. So many options, so little time! You wore boots all winter, so how about sandals? These dual style Dior Homme detachable canvas lined calfskin sandals will take you easily from the street to the shore

But you can’t forget the accessories! Your jewelry should be as minimal as possible in the summer so forget about all that stacking and choose one statement piece. My pick is this beautiful Ann Demeulemeester silver feather necklace. Simple yet stunning it will leave you soaring high above the rest of the fashion crowd.

And THE BAG. Your classic black leather bag gets a summery update with a woven texture in this version from Officine Creative. Big enough to hold a small laptop, the latest copy of L'Uomo Vogue, your camera to capture those summer moments, etc.

With sunglasses you can never go wrong a pair of black Ray Ban Wayfarers

So that’s how to do simple summer dressing if color is not exactly your "thing". Remember look for modified versions of classic summer apparel to stay ahead of the curve but while keeping the season in mind. Remember no matter what anybody says nothing will ever be the new black. All pieces featured above can be found on the always essential Luisaviaroma.com.

Happy Shopping!
