If you are anything like me, you love to wear black no matter what time of year it is. Well, I have recently discovered that you can still wear dark tones during Spring and still look chic. The Dark side of Spring is probably one of my favourite ways to dress… even when the sun is out! Here is my list of trends to wear with dark tones to help guide you to the light!


Rompers are always my go to attire. They are easy to throw on and head out the door. A pair of heels will dress it up and a pair of sandals can turn your style into a boho beach dream A romper is universal which is why we all fall in love with them. A cosy look that still gets two thumbs up for street style goes to none other than a patterned black romper. This Madewell long sleeve design is light in fabric, cute and with a few neutral toned accessories and Sole Society sandals, you have perfected wearing black in the midst of spring. Pair it with some thick framed black, again, RayBan sunglasses and you have an uber cool look!

Brown Skirts

If you are on top of your trends like a Fashionista should be, you probably have a brown suede skirt somewhere in your closet because face it, we have seen them everywhere! Do not put that bad boy away just yet cause you will want it for spring! Pairing your favourite brown suede skirt with a relaxed black tee is a match made in heaven. This entire outfit from is great for a day out with the girls or for trendy work attire. I especially love the lace up heels that bring the outfit together.

Black and Camo

Black shorts are always a piece to have in your wardrobe for any season. My beloved look for black shorts is with a camo tee. Blogger of Song of Style, Aimee Song perfects this entire look from head to toe. In a Current Elliott camo shirt and Ella Moss Heidi shorts, and a simple ankle strap heel from TibiEdita, you are golden! I love the simplicity of this look and the way she turned it completely casual chic by adding a denim jacket from 7 for All Mankind makes it all that much better.

Tie Dye

Make things hippie-esque with a well-loved tie dye ensemble. The Tie Dye Smock Dress from Asos is a must have in black. It is great for beach days, festivals and even a lunch date. I love the bare shoulders design along with a pair of tie up sandals. The thing that stood out to me most was that the colour doesn’t over power or look too dark for spring or even summer. A head to toe Asos outfit, the fringe bag puts the icing on the cake.

When you are rummaging through your closet and catch yourself stopping at those black shorts or romper, you can find ways to spruce them up this season. Do not be afraid to rock those dark tones with pride and discover the dark side of spring! In my opinion, I could never say no to a little black romper!

Is the advice to practice when buying shoes? Indeed, it is particularly appropriate especially for women – to take into account the height of the heels in case of back pain. But that’s obviously not all.

You have back pain or osteoarthritis at the hip

Keep in mind that wearing high heels will put your pelvis forward. You will arch the back, which can promote or accentuate joint pain or low back pain. Prefer a boot heel of 4 to 5 cm. Ban stiletto heels, which can cause loss of balance and increase back pain, sometimes to the neck. Not to mention the compressed feet after prolonged standing. Also avoid choosing flat shoes (ballerinas) that can cause calf pain, arch pain and low back pain.

Too tight?

Know that we all have one foot stronger than the other and that the feet are more inflated at the end of the day. So avoid choosing shoes that squeeze your feet or toes, which squeeze you. Buy shoes that go to fitting. If they are too tight, the leather or fabric may over time grow on your foot but often at the price of bulbs and a serious lack of comfort. The galy shoe rarely adapts to the foot (whatever the saleswoman says) but, on the other hand, it can distort it. Do not try to soften a leather too rigid or put the shoe on a form with a wet cloth so that it widens. Prefer another model immediately.

There is size and size

Always try on shoes and do not just – if you’re true to a brand or model – consistently choose the same size. In fact, from one manufacturing country to another, but also from one model to another, the sizes vary. In addition, everything depends on leather, some finishes. Some leathers or fabrics are softer than others. And that can make a big difference. It is sometimes enough to opt for a half-size higher.

Flip flops, mules and clappers

From the return of the beautiful days, we see more than them: flip-flops, mules or clappers. Even men opt for sneakers or flip flops at the beach, on vacation but also as slippers or even outright shoes. Be careful though, these trendy shoes are actually only beach slippers or improved bath. They are only suitable for the pool or the beach. Thin soles do not dampen shocks. In addition, to keep them at the foot, it usually compresses the toes which can cause plantar warmth, pain heels, the arch, even the calf.

Two different models at the same time

Rather than trying two different models successively and then making the comparison, prefer to test two different models at the same time one at each foot. You will be able to see the shoe that is the most beautiful to your foot and also the one in which you feel the best!
