Now that the weather has finally warmed up and the sun is staying up until the late evening, you probably have hidden your dark clothing away and exist in a wardrobe of bright florals. I can’t blame you. But after seeing some of the coolest actresses on red carpets and at events this month in black ensembles, I’m sort of reconsidering the shift to spring hues. Let’s be real: Black goes with everything, it makes even the simplest summer dress look Audrey Hepburn-chic, and you can wear basically any colored accessory with it. Not convinced yet? Take a look at some of the celebs who stepped out in noir to get inspired.
Black embellishment is the perfect way to go dark, but stay feeling light--just look at Marc Jacobs’ final show for Louis Vuitton for inspiration. Channel your inner Lea Michele with a Free People Sheer Black Dress ($128).
