Dark Denim
Rocking deep blue hues for spring is kinda unheard of. Courtesy of Beaufille

When you think of spring, pastels naturally come to mind. Not that there's anything wrong with that. After a long, drab winter, we all can use a little color pick-me-up. But pastels for spring, to paraphrase Miranda Priestly, isn't exactly groundbreaking. Sporting dark denim for spring, however, is pretty novel.

Shades like navy, ink, indigo and midnight are more associated with fall and winter than spring. We like taking (fashion) risks, though. Plus, there's something about rocking the deeper blue hues that makes any ensemble feel elevated. Some you can even get away with wearing to work. Although you should check with HR first.

If you feel like you simply can't commit because you'll feel separation anxiety if you're not allowed to go the pastel route, relax. You can always wear lilac, baby blue, mint or peach up top or on the bottom to balance things out. Don't sleep on primary colors, either. Add a concentrated pop of red, yellow, blue or green to really amp up the look. You can totally go the double denim route, too. Which is why we included everything from jeans to shirts to jackets to skirts to dresses. Of course, you may want to break things up a bit with some colorful footwear.

Ready to revamp your spring wardrobe strategy? Then keep reading to find the best dark denim pieces of the upcoming season. They also work great for in-between dressing.
