You can never go wrong with an all-black outfit. It makes a powerful statement without trying too hard. Also, it’s perfect way to look chic in this rainy April weather. There are a few black essentials that every Fashionista/o should have in their closets. One is a black leather jacket. It’s the perfect jacket for all seasons. It’s easy to dress up with a nice bodycon dress or dress down with a plain V-neck and jeans. Everyone should have a pair of black pants in their closet as well. They are easy to put on when you are in rush to get to class. You also need a black pair of boots. They add a tough factor to any outfit. Black can be spring appropriate if your black pieces are not too heavy. So now let’s see how its done.

This Fashionista had on a lightweight motorcycle jacket. It’s still spring appropriate because it’s not as heavy as the typical moto jacket. They also come in other material like rayon, which is another lightweight material. She threw on a simple black crop top with her high-waisted riding pants and black booties. Another way to elevate an all-black ensemble is with accessories. Her black leather backpack is another way to add toughness to an outfit. She stacked on sliver rings and bracelets to add shine to her outfit. This Fashionista also added a touch of spring by adding a dark floral cap. The flowers on the cap are still spring-like, but the dark floral print is sticking with the all-black aesthetic.

How To: Black is still appropriate for spring. Keep your black pieces lightweight and simple.
