Style Tips: How To Wear Black In Spring/Summer
Surprise surprise, black is back and it’s better than ever!
Seen in sexy cut outs, sheer panels and gorgeous lace, black is back and we couldn’t be more excited.
Typically a big no no for the spring/summer season, black has been re-vamped and styled to make it warmer weather appropriate.
Black is a go-to and it’s pretty much always on trend, however it’s easy to look out of place amongst vibrant floral and statement hues. So the trick is to lighten up your black styles with perfect styling and gorgeous accessories.
Our top tips to lighten up black for spring/summer are:
Find That LBD
A go-to for those super hot days, a little black dress is timeless, versatile and oh so pretty. Easily worn over bathers with sandals for lazy beach days, or dressed up for the office or a dinner date. Simply add the right shoes and accessories for the occasion.
Bold clutches, layered jewels, killer heels – nothing adds a little something to black than accessories. We love adding a printed scarf with contrast brown or tan lace up heels or layering on a bright coloured necklace with chunky cocktail rings for a dinner date. It’s all about creating the perfect contrast.
Play With Fabrics
Lace, chiffon and netting are all fabulous options for spring and summer, not only are they feminine, they are super light-weight. Seen in contrast panelling or on their own, don’t be afraid to try different fabric styles.
Add A Bold Lip
Nothing brightens up a LBD than a gorgeous hot pink lip. The perfect way to add instant colour with minimal effort, a bold lip dresses up a basic skirt and top combo and is great for nights out!
Mix n’ Match
You don’t have to dress head-to-toe in black for spring/summer. Try branching out by teaming with white denim or pairing a statement cami with boxy black shorts.
Play With Prints
Choose bold prints and splashes of colour that are worked into monochromatic prints. It will make the black less-heavy and more appropriate for spring and summer! We love monochromatic graphic prints, bold florals on a black base and black panelling worked into a botanical printed dress.
