I don’t know why or how florals ended up representing some kind of synonym for spring, if you’ve seen the movie “The Devil Wears Prada” (I talk more about that movie here), you know the whole “Florals for Spring (groundbreaking)” thing. Regardless of just being some quote in a fashionable movie, it’s true. The sun comes out to play and the first thing that comes to our minds (whether we wear them or not) are florals. Flowers in dresses, skirts, jackets and even shoes. Maybe it’s classical conditioning (please excuse my marketing dork self), maybe it’s the warm weather or stereotypes, but there’s something that dictates us to only wear dark, bold colors during fall and winter and then pick brighter colors and patterns during spring and summer. It’s something similar to restaurants that won’t serve you their breakfast menu for dinner or the other way around.
The change of season is a perfect excuse to try new things, the contrast with all the pre-determined stuff will make everybody look at you 🙂
Now, let’s get to the good stuff. Why should I wear dark colors in spring? – you ask, well…
- Black is timeless
- It makes you look slimmer in an instant
- You will automatically look more formal
- It makes everybody think you put a lot of effort picking your outfit when it literally took you 5 seconds.
- It’s easy to pair with other stuff
- You can easily emphasize a certain statement item by adding a pop of color.
I think there are a lot more perks to that little list right there, I could keep adding stuff, but I want you to do it with me, leave a comment down below telling me why do you think dark colors can make it to your wardrobe during spring.
