Stay chic and cool in these picks from Philly shops.

Black-Body
We at Shoppist have a love affair with the color black. (Also everyone else, ever.) The inky shade matches with everything and just looks so damn chic—we can’t get enough of it. But what happens when the temps start rising and an effortlessly cool black sheath starts to feel more like a solar panel? It might seem like the only option is to store away your black clothing until fall or opt for pastels for the next three months, but it’s not true! We rounded up the best ways to don your blackest blacks and still look and feel cool this summer.
