Just because it is spring doesn't mean you have to stow all of your fabulous and favorited black clothing away.

While some people embrace the season in neons and pastels, there is still a large group of us who just can't let our love of black falter.

Just because you're wearing black does not mean you have to feel hot or look gloomy. Our new Outfit of The Week is showcasing a fun wardrobe staple that is both perfect for warm days and the girl who is devoted to her favorite shade of flattering. This poplin jumpsuit by Self Portrait is striped and ruffled through the bodice and fits slim through the legs. Every fashion loving girl should own at least one jumpsuit that she feels amazing in. With the unique construction and beautiful silhouette of this piece in particular, you will not want to pass it up. Since our jumpsuit is on more of the muted side, we wanted to jazz up our feet a bit. Make an entrance with these black ‘Tropicana’ sandals from Aquazzura. Crafted in leather from Italy, this pair features an open toe with pom poms and tassel appliqué on front, an ankle tie and a stiletto heel. Keeping the bag more traditional, we went for a piece that can be worn with many different looks. Classic and elegant, a Chanel bag adds luxury to any outfit. This is the perfect bag to carry whether you are aiming for a day or evening look. Made in the brand's home country from sophisticated silk satin, it features a removable gold-tone chain strap and a turn lock logo closure. Adding a little unexpected edge to our jewelry is a piece from 1986's Rebellious collection. This twisted danger claw ring, with inlay white enamel gives even more contrast to our ensemble. If you do decide to take this look out for a daytime spin, a fabulous pair of sunglasses is a necessity. Trust Saint Laurent to add an instant dose of cool to new season looks with a pair of the sleek SL 1 sunnies. The square silhouette is crafted in Italy from black acetate with tonal lenses, and finished with minimalistic silver-tone metal temples. As for makeup, a look like this is screaming for a wing moment. This Marc Jacobs liquid eyeliner is inspired by the classic calligraphy pen for drawing the finest lines and achieving perfect definition. Whether you save this look for a special event or simply feel like dressing up for the day, in this outfit you will be going 'The Stripe Way' wherever you turn up.
