Do’s and Don’ts of Wearing a black dress
- Accessorize it
Do you feel like your black dress just isn’t ‘oomph’ enough to get you going? Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! Get creative by summoning the inner fashionista in you. You can forge through your supply of accessories to get the perfect bling to go with your outfit. Almost everything works perfectly with little black dresses!
Here are some ideas you can go with to style up or down your dress according to the occasion!
If you have a simple sleeveless, tank top or tube short black dress you can pair it up with so many things to make it casual.
Black dresses go hand in hand with almost any type of shoes, jewelry or coats. You just need to know when and what to pair them with. Head over to some online clothing boutique stores right now to grab trendy accessories and foolproof footwear to complement your little black dresses. Revolve and Lulu’s are the best available option. However, you can also try Sophie and Trey.
For that perfect daytime look, pair up your little black dress with long boots, ankle boots, sneakers, converse and even ballet flats if you like as long as it provides the correct symmetry and proportion. With short black dresses, you can wear almost any type of shoes- long or ankle. For long maxi style black dresses, however, the perfect look can be created using ankle high boots or sneakers.
Keeping in mind the cut of your little black dress, you can pair it up with myriads of jackets and cardigans. From crop cut jackets to denim, blue jackets or a long overcoat or cardigan almost anything works for a casual look with your black dress! Bomber or army jackets and boyfriend/ button-down shirts are also very cool with black dresses.
For casual wear, you can choose almost any kind of bling. Avoid chunky bracelets, necklaces or earrings. They can be slightly too much for a casual day out. However, you can always pair your monochromatic dress with chunky bangles during the day!
For the perfect date night or a preppy day, you can accessorize your black dress with high heels, stilettos, nude heels and even over the knee boots.
For an evening look, you can throw on a cute tuxedo coat. Leather jacket or a beautiful fur coat would work as well. The difference between a casual and evening look is the fabric and texture of the jacket or coat.
In the evening, you can accessorize your black dress with everything and anything you weren’t allowed to for your casual look! Just make sure you do not wear them all at once. Keep it minimal by pairing your dress with either a chunky necklace or earrings along with a bracelet to represent your fashion statement in the classiest way possible!
- Experiment with silhouettes
- Play with the fabric.
- Add color to your all-black look.
- Wear fitted black clothes. Black should never be worn loose as it already gives a drab and frumpy look.
- Wear black clothes when you spot lint. It is time to throw them out.
- Wear black too close to your face. It might make you look a bit haggard.
- Wear fabrics that are inappropriate for the season.
