I’ve mentioned many of times before that black is my favorite color to style because it helps any outfit look more put-together. But I still love finding ways to throw in a bit of color to my wardrobe, especially in the spring and summer time when everything is so bright and cheery!
For this look I decided to keep my entire outfit black except for my pair of bright floral statement shorts. By keeping the rest of my outfit as minimally distractive as possible it keeps the focus on what I wanted to be the main piece of this look: the shorts. I purchased them last year from Francesca’s, and they’re not only super cute but they’re incredible comfortable and airy making them perfect for summer. At first glance I truthfully thought they were a little much for me, and I couldn’t imagine what I’d wear with them. But after thinking about it I realized how simple they could be to style and I was sold!
Sadly they don’t have them in stock this year (at least not yet anyway!), but that’s my favorite part about this look: how easy it is to change-up and recreate. Just pick up a cute pair of floral shorts and then pair them with a black tee and shoes and you’re done! Or if you don’t like florals, you could apply the concept to any bold patterned shorts you wear. The key is just balancing the brightness with some neutrals so that there’s just the right amount of color. And adding a pop of color to your lips helps tie the whole look together!
If you’re looking for a way to add a little bit more color to your wardrobe for spring, this is a really easy way to do that! And I’d love to see your creations in the comments :).
