The flowers have bloomed and spring is in the air, so time to implement all the traditional spring fashion rules right? Contrary to popular believe, spring fashion doesn't just mean bright colors, floral prints and soft pastels.  Yes, we are girly girls, and yes, we are happy, but keeping the classic color in high rotation is totally acceptable. I find that my preference for all things black pretty much trumps the trendy spring hues no matter what season we're in. The chic color goes with everything, and when the right black pieces for spring are selected, you can wear the color year-round, even with the rising temperatures. 
The key to black for spring is still keeping it cool -- oxymoron? Not at all, black can absolutely work in warmer weather with just a few small adjustments. Opt for loose, flowing pieces that lets a lot of air in like these two pieces I copped from Zara a few days ago.  Dare to show a little skin by wearing tops with exposed shoulders, deep v's or low cut back tops for a comfortable yet fashionable look perfect for spring. Pictured here is the Frilly Top from Zara and at only $29.99, this is a great spring wardrobe addition for those black cravings.  It's no secret that I'm a sucker for wide leg pants all year long, but with the warmer weather, this is especially a must.  A nice pair of polyester pants will take you so far in the heat -- no skinny jeans here ladies.  I grabbed these Palazzo Trousers from Zara on my last binge shopping day and fell in love with them.  To finish off the perfect spring look, throw on a dark pair of shades and black handbag and pump or sandal to deliver complete chic spring style.  How do you wear black for spring? We'd love to hear your comments.
