How to Wear All-Black in Spring

If you think that wearing all black all the time is just for Manhattanites, you’ll be happy to know that wearing black even in spring is a chic and effortless style to wear. Wearing all black can seem intimidating, especially if you’re not used to wearing all black or even wearing all of one color at once. It doesn’t have to be daunting, and it’s actually much easier than it seems. After all, you are just wearing one color. Wearing all black doesn’t have to be reserved for only the cool-weather months. Here’s how to wear all black when the flowers start to bloom in spring.

How NOT to Wear Black in Spring

Before we dive into examples of how to wear all-black this season, we’ll list the black fabrics you shouldn’t wear when it’s hot out. You don’t want to wear black leather or a black women’s wool sweater. If it’s an especially hot day, you’ll want to stay away from black jeans that are already quite heavy to begin with; you definitely don’t want to be sweating in them.

Cotton Trousers

So we know that us saying “cotton trousers” sounds like something your grandma would wear, but there’s a reason why Grandma loved them so much. Wear a pair of pull-on cotton pants in black this spring. The reason you’ll want cotton is that it’s a breathable fabric. That’s the first tip when it comes to wearing black during spring because the clothes will be absorbing heat from the sun at a faster rate than other colors. Try one of our cotton high-waisted pants in black this spring.

Lightweight Tops

Opt for tops in breathable fabrics like cotton or a cotton modal. Linen tops also look crisp and feel lightweight, and if you want to look extra fashionable, that’s when you’ll wear a black linen top. If you want to take your black cotton shirt to the next level, get a black Supima cotton top. You haven’t worn a cotton top quite like our Supima cotton top. This specific kind of Supima cotton is made from the top 3% of all cotton grown in the country, making our black Supima tops truly the crème de la crème.

Black Blazer

If you’ve been looking for a dressier and lightweight jacket that works well in black for spring, you’ll want a black blazer. The best part is that you don’t have to dry clean this fabulous blazer. It’s machine washable, so your washable wool-blend blazer looks fresh and clean even after every wash. Make your black blazer extra special by getting it personalized. Select the Make It Personal option before you check out and get it embroidered with your initials, name, or even a fun design of your choice.

Waterproof Raincoat

With spring comes rain, and when the rain comes, you’re going to want a waterproof raincoat. While you’re at it, don’t settle for a raincoat that’s only waterproof. Try our Squall raincoat, named after the dreaded squall storm, because this raincoat can handle any kind of spring storm that comes your way. It’s windproof and waterproof, and you’ll be looking stylish and feeling comfortable in a black Squall, even when Mother Nature is at her worst.

Black Sunglasses

We’ve been so focused on clothes that we’ve almost forgotten about accessories. Your sunnies are even more important now that we’re headed into sunny weather! Wear protective eyewear and have fun with different details on your sunglasses. A gold lace appliqué on the edges of your black sunglasses adds a sophisticated pop of color to your all-black outfit.

Black Shoes

Trust us. We haven’t forgotten about the shoes. Your black shoes from fall and winter can still be worn in spring. Now’s the time to wear open-toe heels in black. Wear those black sandals. Slip into your fashionable black suede sneakers. You can’t forget about the quintessential black flats too.

Black Makeup

Now that we’ve covered clothes and accessories let’s talk about makeup. We don’t mean black lipstick unless you’re into that, of course. Go on with your bad self. One easy way to wear black makeup is by using black eyeliner to do an extended winged tip. Try lining the bottom lids of your eyes. Keep the rest of your makeup minimal so that your eyes really pop with the black eye makeup.

While spring fashion is normally associated with soft pastels, florals, and bright colors, you don’t have to look like a pageant princess this entire season. You can wear neutral colors. With all of our tips in mind, you can wear all black this spring in both comfort and confidence.
