Let’s talk about how to implement dark colors for Spring! I generally tend to gravitate towards dark hues when it is totally inappropriate to do so. Like now, when it is hot and the sun is already scorching hot, even though it is the peak of spring. Here are some tips to wear dark colors in spring and summer:

  1. Sleeveless is your friend! Halters, tanks, and off the shoulder. Of course, all of those options are great in an appropriate setting, bring a wrap scarf or jacket when you’re inside.
  2. Find fabrics that are breezy. Fabrics like linen, viscose/rayon, and polyester are great! They will dry easy and stay in their original form and shape and, most importantly, keep you feeling fresh.
  3. Loose pieces are a yes! Fitted items are great, don’t get me wrong, but when you’re outside and the fabric of your clothes just sticks to you from sweat, you will wish to be next to an ac.
  4. Add a color that will pop! A bright red lipstick or shoes that are bright pink, red, light blue, you get the picture. A color that will stand out will be the focal point of your outfit, so choose wisely!
