Black Summer Fashion – Glamour Woman of the Decade Victoria Beckham can’t be wrong

Victoria Beckham kept it simple and stylish when she picked up her Glamour Woman of the Year award for being Woman of the Decade in a beautiful black corset top and trouser combo from Maison Martin Margiela

Black is simple, elegant, and summery! There are no fashion rules that say you can’t wear black in the summer. It can look super sexy, with a bit of a tan and a slick of red lipstick. The key to wearing black well in the summer months is to keep it simple, don’t over-accessorize, mix up your textures and fabrics.
