The Real Real offers shoppers a black moment in springtime. Black has long been thought of as a winter color but, according to fashion experts, this is no longer the case. The Real Real tells us that, ‘a black moment in the springtime is undoubtedly the chicest.’

Gone are the days when black shoes and handbags must be stored away for fall. It’s no longer a fashion mandate to wear soft pastels with white or ecru shoes. The Real Real suggests teaming a sleeveless black vest with a skinny ankle pant and low bootie for a Parisian look or keeping it breezy in a midi slip dress and flat black sandals.

You can enjoy chic, slimming, runway-fresh looks in black this spring. Classic and slenderizing, black can be worn for career, corporate, casual or evening wear. Choose a black designer handbag to carry with denim or satin to be on-trend for 2014.

Even the most frugal fashionista wants a few designer pieces in her wardrobe, and The Real Real online luxury consignment makes it possible for her do just that.

Before purchasing clothing, have a friend help you to get accurate measurements. Use a tape measure, holding it snugly but not tightly. Avoid guesswork and try to ensure an excellent fit.
