Wearing white during Summer is a no-brainer, but sporting head-to-toe black? That's a different story. Our closets are stocked with more of the staple than we care to admit, but once warm weather arrives, it's hard to not crave something bright and breezy instead. But if there's anyone who can pull off a trend we've doubted before, it's Olivia Palermo. The queen of street style proved with just a single great outfit that black on black can be totally Summer appropriate.

While her cropped tuxedo pants and Witchery sweater took monochrome to the max, Olivia piled on accessories for added polish and a little extra shimmer. To start, a golden Capwell choker and chunky bracelet stood out against the dark backdrop of her clothing. Caged Schutz sandals and a snakeskin tote added a sleek and sexy elegance to her ensemble, and Westward Leaning sunglasses were a Summer style must that she pulled off perfectly. And while we can't imagine wearing Olivia's look when the temperature is anywhere near 100 degrees, for the days when the temperature is, well, temperate, this style makes for a simple but standout choice.
