As winter transitions into spring, your fashion transitions too. Spring isn’t easy to dress for because it’s still a little cool to pull out the short sleeves, and it’s not quite warm enough to ditch the winter coat. If you’re ready to welcome the longer days and warmer nights, it’s as simple as wearing lighter fabrics and adding a little color.

When wearing black on black, try mixing different textures, such as sequins and a sweater so your monochrome outfit looks more complicated.
