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 Nelly.com 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!
