Swap your autumn/winter LBDs for a Little Black Sundress. Opt for an on-trend slip shape or an easy-to-wear tunic style to keep it spring appropriate and fuss free.
3. Add texture
Break up the block colour of black with woven accessories or textured fabrics. Not only do they add interest, and give greater depth to your outfit, they also make it look more considered and deliberate. Bonus points for a slick of red lipstick to finish.
4. Show some skin
A Bardot top styled casually with denim or trousers is a great choice – baring just enough skin to keep you cool, but still working for warmer weather, while a low-backed dress or jumpsuit like the one above also works wonders.
5. Loosen up
When wearing darker colours, it’s the silhouette that will save your from sweltering. Look for lightweight – preferably natural – fabrics, and go for floaty silhouettes that won’t cling. This spring’s trend for jumpsuits makes them the perfect head-to-toe black choice.
