STYLE GURU STYLE: Black is Always the New Black

STYLE GURU STYLE: Black is Always the New Black

Spring is in the air and so is the end of the school year. A time where we start planning our summers, hitting the beach on weekends, and finally getting a break from our seemingly endless schoolwork. But if you’re anything like me, your least favorite part of this season is moving all of your LBDs and basically anything darker colored to the back of your closet. But who says we have to stick to brighter colors in spring? I say let’s embrace those darker shades this season. So go dig up those black dresses and tops because it’s so simple to transition those pieces to spring/summer!

One way to lighten up that all-black look is to incorporate a pattern into the mix. In this outfit I chose a fun polka dot pattern dress, that way I didn’t look weighed down by my velvet black blazer. Throw on some block heel sandals and gold accessories to complete your look. You can even lose the blazer to make your look GNO ready.

Speaking of gold, accessories are another way to make your more wintery outfits fit into spring. Adding a metallic bag or a funky necklace can really make your outfits pop and break up all that black.

In this look I chose to keep the makeup light and natural, to give the outfit a more effortless vibe. Lip gloss and highlighter will add the perfect amount of shine to get you through this transition period of winter to spring.

So don’t pack away those LBDs yet! Remember black is always in season and it’s easier than you think to transform a winter piece into your new go-to outfit this spring.
