When our own closets stop energizing us, we typically look to our favorite celebrities for fashion inspiration, and based on the latest looks from Tracee Ellis Ross, Kerry Washington and Katie Holmes, it seems that there's one color we should definitely be rocking for the tail-end of summer: black.
All three of these stylish stars have been spotted in outfits where black was the centerpiece, and you may be thinking to yourself, ‘Why would I wanna wear black in the dead of summer?!’ But, each of these looks included a clever twist so that their wearers wouldn't be too hot in the scorching weather.
Washington wore an-all black ensemble when she visited the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live! and acted as a host for the night. The Scandal actress was styled by Law Roach, and he outfitted her in a black, satin minidress from David Koma. Although she wore a dark color, Washington stayed cool in the breathable, lightweight fabric, and the design also featured a cutout along the neckline (a trend that we've been seeing all summer). She shared her ’fit on Instagram, along with a joking caption that said, “Once again, a woman has to come in and do a man’s job. @jimmykimmel, enjoy your vaca though!!!!”
