How can I style my favorite black dress?
Styling your black dresses with trendy pieces is a fun way to refresh your look and discover new ways to elevate this timeless staple.
Black dresses style up when you use contrasting prints and patterns. For example, have fun playing with neutral tone animal prints like beige leopard print sweaters, a gray snake print duster, or white zebra print heels. These styling gems are an easy way to dress up your look for cocktail parties, weddings, or a high school prom that can call for a semi-formal to formal dress code. Style up your look with a faux fur wrap or an airy chiffon duster, luxe rhinestone earrings, glitter pumps, or sexy lace-up stilettos. The added layer of a rich formal fabric like a faux fur wrap or chiffon duster adds that dressy detail that matches your formal dresses just right. Keep it more lowkey and casual for a casual date night or a girl’s night in when you layer a ribbed knit black dress with a faux leather/faux suede moto jacket or distressed denim jacket to nail that casual edgy look. Finish your casual outfits with a pair of booties, thigh-high boots, mules, sneakers, sandals, or flats that don’t overshadow your black dress.
Don’t forget about casual accessories like a boater hat and dainty chain necklaces that add a subtle touch of glam to your everyday looks. The neutral hue of black offers the opportunity to style it with different types of accessories and layers without clashing. When it comes to styling your black dresses, you can’t go wrong with trendy accessories or glam layers that add to your formal and casual looks.
