Hey y’all! The feedback from these styling posts has been great so I’m going to keep them coming. Today I’m showing how to style a black dress a few ways. As always there will be a video showing how to wear these looks over on Instagram. If you aren’t following me there then you should. There are many more ways to style it but for now this is what I have for you. Let me know which way you would wear it.
A Shirt Underneath
I’ll admit, this may not be a favorite for everyone simply because it can make you look or feel bulky. It helps if the shirt underneath is a crop top. That way you don’t have to worry about the shirt bunching under the dress. Try a more form fitting top to wear underneath. Oh and just as you can wear a shirt underneath the dress you can also wear a shirt over the dress. I didn’t share a look like that but it’s just another idea.
With A Denim Jacket
As soon in my capsule wardrobe post, a denim jacket can literally go with anything. Whether you choose to wear the jacket or tie it around your waist it’s a good look. I’m pretty sure that this is the most universally flattering look.
You can simply wear the dress alone. I chose to add a chain belt just so it wasn’t completely “naked”. Personally I never wear things “plain”. I need some sort of layer. Again this look depends on your preference.
With A Shirt Tied Around Your Waist
This is another easy styling trick for wearing a black dress. By tying a shirt like a plaid one around your waist it instantly makes the dress feel more casual.
With A Utility Jacket and Booties
This is a great transitional look for the Fall. I was going to put on a hat too but honestly I didn’t feel like taking my hair down lol.
Thanks for reading!
