Your Go To Black Dress Style Guide


Your Go To Black Dress Style Guide

This post is all about which black dress styles you can wear for any particular occasion. I realized that white we all talk about the Little black dress, we don’t always wear the little black dress to every occasion. And more over, a lot of us do not prefer to wear little dresses. 

So, in this post, I am sharing different black dress styles out there that look flattering and you can rewear and feel confident. You can use this style guide as your outfit guide when you are trying to pick which black dress you should wear for any occasion. 

What's Covered In the Post

Work Dress

Spring & Summer

Shirt dresses are perfect work dress for spring and summer. Its flow and comfortable even with the warm weather. And if you pick one that has a bit of prints, it will brighten up the black color itself. 


Fall & Winter

As the weather gets cooler wearing knitwear seems like the best option. You can pick a sweater dress, but if you want to update your knit dress, pick a cardigan dress. The buttons will elevate the outfit effortlessly.

Work Party Dress

Spring & Summer

Thinking of a work party dress can be a bit daunting because you  want to look nice but appropriate for work as well. And this style of waist wrap dress looks elegant and party chic as well. An A line dress always looks great.

Fall & Winter

A blazer dress is the perfect dress for work party. Its structured, looks sophisticated that looks great day and night. And the waist detail adds a waist slimming silhouette that looks amazing on every body type. 

Formal Party Dress

Spring & Summer

Satin/Silk dress look absolutely great and elegant in black. These will make for a great wedding guest outfit.Pair it with some sparkling jewelry and you will look elegant and sophisticated. 

Fall & Winter

Fall and winter you can wear something heavier as it gets cooler. I love this printed maxi dress that does not look like and all black outfit. Is fun but still looks romantic for a wedding.

Outdoor Party Dress

Spring & Summer

A Really comfortable dress is important for outdoor parties. You want to look cute but at the same time you will look chic. I love cotton eyelet dresses. You don’t have to do anything other than wearing a cute footwear and tie your hair and you are ready for a picnic party or backyard barbecue.

Fall & Winter

If you have an outdoor party, you have to stay warm and cozy. That is why I love maxi dresses because they can serve the purpose. You can easily layer on jackets and coats or even a cardigan to stay warm outside.

Night Out

Spring & Summer

Night out outfits don’t have to be super short or super tight. You can create and edgy look with cut out styles that give you the illusion of sensuality, but they are comfortable as well. And I actually prefer a knee length because you don’t have to worry about how much you are showing when you sit down.

Fall & Winter

You can apply the same rule to a fall and winter dress but instead of a light weight material, pick knitwear. It will keep you warm but the cut out style will add that edginess we look for a night out look. Pair it with sandals or boots and you look sensual and elegant as well. 

Beach Vacation

Short Dress

Beach vacations equals warm weather and what better way to dress than wearing something short that you can layer on bikinis or swimsuit. And with some puff sleeve detail you can also wear this outfit to dinners because vacation looks means versatility. 

Long Dress

A flowy camisole maxi dress is another great option where you look like you are in a nice resort but you still feel comfortable and breathable. The dress style is always so elegant and looks great on every body type. 

Cocktail Party

Spring & Summer

Cocktail dresses need to be fancy and dressed up. for spring and summer wearing something lightweight like a satin dress looks chic and elegant. And I always prefer a little longer which always creates more elegance. 

Fall & Winter

In cooler weather you can wear heavier material and its time to add some dazzle with some embellishments. You can still look structured but its the perfect time to wear something with more details without feeling too hot.
