After launching in 2004 and closing in 2019, Germany’s first online luxury fashion store Stylebop is making its return in a big way. Headquartered in Düsseldorf, Stylebop’s highly curated selection combines fashion-week freshness with a strong sense of the zeitgeist. With spring and summer edging closer, that means that the Stylebop pages are stacked with essentials for the warmer seasons ahead.

But we’re willing to bet you’ve heard enough about the opportunity to wear bold colors again, and while that’s true, some of us like to keep things pared-back even in the lighter months. Just because the sun’s out doesn’t mean that your favorite blacks, navy blues, and greys need to go into hibernation. In fact, we’d argue that dressing dark has even more impact during spring and summer.

So, whether you like to steer clear of color all year round, or if you’re looking for a handful of understated darker pieces to act as a foundation for your spring/summer highlights, keep scrolling to check out our favorite dark pieces for spring below.

Find the best dark clothing for spring below.

Who says you can’t wear leather boots in spring? Rick says you can, so you can. This pair of futuristic Chelsea boots feature a rugged silver sole unit which stands in stark contrast to the sleek leather uppers.

Shirt Dress


Maison Margiela

Buy at Stylebop

Just because you’re not doing color this spring doesn’t mean that you can’t go light. This Margiela dress features an illusory effect to give the impression of a layered V-neck over a crisp cotton oversized shirt.

Marni Hoodie

Buy at Stylebop

One of the all-time greats when it comes to color schemes, it feels slightly unnatural for Marni to be part of our colorless roundup. But, in typical Marni form, this hoodie features a dialed-down neutral palette to the elasticated cuffs, hem, and hood while the black torso dominates the aesthetic.

Vetements Printed T-Shirt

Maison Margiela Jeans

Maison Margiela

Buy at Stylebop

We’ve already seen a twist on the classic pair of jeans for women, and this pair from Margiela does the same job for the fellas. White topstitching gives structure to the straight-leg pair as well as carrying the inside-out, work-in-progress feel.

There’s no mistaking where this More Joy x Christopher Kane shirt comes from. A repeating More Joy text logo jumps from the black backdrop while subtle detailing like the oversized Cuban collar gives the piece a confident personality.

Jacquemus really hits its stride during spring and summer and while we saw visors creeping in during SS20, we think this Jacquemus Visor will be a go-to this season.
