How To Wear a Black Jacket in Spring: 5 Outfit Ideas

Pastel is all the rage every spring, so much that it has become a bit cliché. We don’t mind pastel colors. We don’t mind colorful outerwear in general. But there’s nothing like adding a few unexpected touches to your everyday ensembles.

Black jackets, for instance, should still have a place in your list of spring staples. Don’t let the somber color fool you because you can still add a spring twist to a black garb. Here are some tips on how to pull it off:

1. Black bomber jacket with printed shirt and shorts

Emmy Rossum did a great job with this monochrome ensemble. Her black bomber jacket looked light enough for spring.

She made it even more charming with a striped shirt (which is pretty much a staple for warm weather) and skort-like shorts.

2. Black coat with printed pleated skirt and bright-colored top

A printed floral skirt can balance the austere quality of a black coat.

Take the brightness up a notch by wearing citrus colors for your top and your shoes. Copy Sarah Hyland’s spot-on look.

3. Leather jacket with light-washed denim jeans

Reese Witherspoon updated the classic leather jacket and gave it a spring vibe by wearing it with faded blue denim jeans.

She added more color with her top and went for boho styling with her ankle boots and fedora hat.

4. All-black ensemble with pastel-colored shoes and bag

Fearne Cotton’s work outfit comprised a mesh shirt, a pair of black pants, and a tough-looking leather moto jacket.

She managed to infuse this look with fresh spring flair by adding pastel touches with her lavender bag and peach sneakers.

5. Boyfriend jeans always work with a black moto jacket

Take it from Vanessa Hudgens. She went for a cool girl vibe in this ensemble.

The actress also stayed modern with a cropped top and a wide-brimmed hat. Accessorize with mules for a girly panache.
