It may be super steamy in Hollywood right now, but the LBD is still holding court as the most popular summer look, even in a sea of fun trends like printed jumpsuits, colorful maxi skirts, and thigh-high rompers. See what celebs have been proving that a black mini never goes out of style no matter what temperature or time of year it is.

In West L.A. on June 23, Amanda Seyfried, 25, made a coffee run in a basic black tank dress and matching flats.

Kristin Cavallari, 24, sported a slouchy long-sleeved shirt dress in L.A. on July 13. The bride-to-be accented the number with a slim belt and sandals.

A freshly blown-out Ali Larter, 35, was spotted leaving a Beverly Hills salon on Tuesday wearing an all-black mini and strappy black sandals. The dress' mesh overlay showed off her stunning figure and created a look that was totally beach-ready.

The key to pulling off black in the summertime is to keep it fresh and seasonless -- look for a loose fit and keep your footwear simple with slim sandals or cute flats.
