Keep Your Look Classic In Chic Black Dresses

It’s no secret that every woman needs a good selection of black dresses in their wardrobe. It’s a classic, elegant look and a go-to style for countless reasons. Though it’s easy to choose styles that are simple, sometimes plain in nature, black certainly shouldn’t equal drab. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and mix up the cut or fit of your black dresses. Take a peek at this stunning edit and you’ll be glad you ventured out of your comfort zone.

Feel The Elegance Of Sophisticated Black Dresses

When you want to be the picture of sophistication, black dresses are always a winning option. Whether dressing to impress at a work event or preparing for a decadent dinner, a perfectly fitted black dress works wonders. The chiffon & lace, black sheath dress by Kay Unger is an exemplary illustration of a perfect polished dress. The long sleeves provide coverage whilst the sheer fabric prevents them from being overly conservative. This combined with a form fitting sheath dress with a lace overlay and black satin waist ribbon is elegant perfection.

Similarly, the Nina Ricci lace black dress offers a figure hugging skirt and long sleeves. It’s a sophisticated, knee length cut and the lace panel below the neckline adds a subtle hint of skin. Ideal for making a good impression without compromising on your amazing personal style.

Dance Until You Drop In Party Ready Black Dresses

No matter the time of year, black dresses are a unwavering party staple. They’re beautifully chic and a jet black fabric always brings a welcome element of drama to a party look. Try for example the wrap over dress by Alexandre Vauthier. Furthering the idea of the dramatic, this dress boasts 80’s style shoulder pads and is made in a sumptuous black velvet. A plunging V neck and split asymmetric hem finishes off this glamorous dress perfectly.

To give a slightly more flirty edge to your look, opt for Johnathan Simkhai’s lace pleated dress. The lace, buttoned bodice is absolutely stunning and fabulously flattering. A pleated skirt with a playful handkerchief hem then drops from the silky banded waist. This is the ultimate party dress and looks fabulous with hair up or down and some matching black accessories. Add in a dark red lip and you’re all set for a memorable evening.
