A Stylish Summer Outfit Made Exclusively With Black-Owned Brands

Stylish Black-Owned Fashion Brands — Summer Outfit Idea With a Camel Midi Dress, Gold Hoop Earrings, Black Bag, and Strappy Mule Sandals

Over the past week demonstrations and protests have been held in response to the senseless deaths of black people like George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. The Black community has urged the world to show support not only by protesting, donating, signing petitions, getting educated on systemic racism, and more, but by promoting and shopping black-owned businesses as well. In solidarity we put together an outfit created exclusively with pieces from black fashion designers. This minimalist look is spot-on for spring and summer with a camel midi dress, black sunglasses, gold hoop earrings, a sleek black bag, and strappy mule sandals. Complete the ensemble with oil-nourished skin. Shop each piece directly from the designers' sites below.
