I think that my biggest commitment in life, except from that to Music, would be the one I have towards the color black. No matter how horribly torrid the dog days of summer can be, I will almost never wear something other than black.
As one Mr. Glenn Danzig once said -or rather sung-, there’s “no holding back the summer night”, and even though I myself avoid being outside during daytime like the plague in the summer , there are always smart ways to be black clad for those inevitable, extremely hot daytime outings: Thank goth for full cotton fabrics, lace, mesh, fishnets, Sunscreen with SPF 50, parasols, oversized sunglasses and huge rimmed hats. ( I do realize that I sound a tad bit like Im giving an Oscar acceptance speech, but oh well!).
Flowy lace dresses are a must in this period for me, and they are also very versatile as you can dress them up or down, wearing them with more casual shoes and minimal accessorizing in the morning and styling them up for the evening. You can always have a pair of stockings and a light jacket with you to prevent that summer night chill.
