Fashion Tips: How to Wear Black in Spring
Black can seem like a fall or winter colour, but that doesn't mean it can't be your go-to in the spring, too.
Don’t get us wrong. We still love all the bright colors and floral prints that come with this season, but there's no denying that black is a classic even during the warmer months.
But maybe you can't help but wonder if wearing black will look too drab and dreary now that the warmer temps have returned. Afterall, the pull of bright shades or pastels gets strong this time of year! That’s why we’ve got you covered! Here are some tips and tricks to feel confident and look beautiful in black any time of the year, especially in spring!
Tip #1: It’s all about what you wear in combination with your black pieces.
Black is a neutral color, so it will play well with all other colours. This means you can pair your black pieces with pretty much anything! That’s a bonus for our wardrobes and makes the stylish possibilities endless.
Think about what you're choosing to go with your black pieces. For example, if you're pairing a bright red top and black jeans, consider adding some gold jewelry for an eye-catching contrast. If the weather is nice out, try pairing your black pieces with white or cream. These lighter hues will help shake off that winter feeling.
Tip #2: Layer with a denim jacket.
Dress up your spring look with a denim jacket!
If you’re wearing a black sundress, you may be worried that it’s too basic for a warm spring day. But don’t fret! We have a super easy and sassy solution: your favourite denim jacket.
A black sundress can feel like it needs something else to elevate it—and the contrast of both colour and layer will surely do just that. Throw on your most comfy sandals or sneaks (see our next tip!), and you’re ready to tackle your day in style.
Tip #3: Keep it easy and breezy with light coloured shirts and some bright sneakers.
Pairing your black pants with light coloured shirts and footwear is the easiest outfit mix-and-match that you can make - so simple that you can do it in your sleep! This classic contrast gives you even more options because it complements a wide range of accessories.
You can switch it up if you have pants with black and white gingham print just like our Amber Pant. Instead of a light-coloured match, you can pair your printed pants with a solid-coloured black top and either vintage black ballet flats or a pair of black pumps, depending on where you're going.
Tip #4. Accessorise.
If you feel your black outfit is too simple and lacks that “oomph” factor, you don’t have to do too much. Just throw on chunky jewelry to make it more interesting and give it some texture. You can use a statement necklace, bracelet or even an eye-catching ring to dress up your outfit. Other accessories that you can consider are cute sling bags or animal print scarves.
The only thing to remember is to be careful not to overdo it! Just because you’ve got amazing accessories does not mean you should show off all of them at the same time.Try to stick to one standout accessory such as trendy scarf or bold earrings and save the rest for another day and another perfect outfit.
Tip #5: Let your look blossom with florals.
Spring always brings to mind bright, cheery blossoms, so adding floral elements to your black outfit is the perfect way to elevate your look during this season.
Floral elements that you can play with are pins, brooches, corsages, and prints. Apart from being cute and stylish, these elements also add a pop of colour to make your black ensemble interesting and lighter. The goal here is to keep your look fun and fresh, so let your creativity run wild!
