If you like to wear black dresses all year round but like them to be season appropriate, here's our edit of black gúnas suitable for spring.
If you're reading this, you're likely in the Black Pack, a group of sistas who wear black all year round, even when the sun is splitting the stones. But the cool thing about being in the Black Pack is that we know how to wear black 365 days a week without looking like we're constantly in mourning. You'll find black pieces in stores every season; you just have to know what to wear them with.
In summer, I love a black strappy dress. I wear it with plain sandals, but sunshine it up with a beach bag. In spring, I wear with a beige trench coat, bare legs and ankle boots. People who like to wear black don't necessarily like to wear all black, that's when something like the trench coat comes in, or colourful shoes.
I was inspired to write this article when I saw the black flowy wrap dress from & Other Stories. Somehow, it is as spring-suitable as a floaty tea-dress or a light pastel sweater. The H&M dress I came across later is in that flattering mid-length style. with a wrap front, that is not only suitable for spring, but it also suits all body types. I love the simplicity of the Zara dress - and that it's faux leather that looks pretty close to the real thing, but it only costs €20.
Take your pick.
