Lighten up this spring… or don't. If you're a goth or just your regular, everyday don't-care-about-the-seasons girl, you can wear your anti-pastel rebellion on your sleeve—or arm or waist. Thanks to the wealth of choice in the marketplace, you can totally bring an unexpected color to the table. You can also take advantage of darks' versatility by coordinating however you want. Be unexpected and buck spring's colorful looks by keeping it dark.
