A black dress is a wardrobe staple that every woman should have. No matter what your preferred style, your body shape or the time of year, a black dress is the perfect choice for any occasion.
Whether it’s spring, summer, fall or winter, these tips will help you choose the perfect black dress:
Avoid Trendy Black Dresses
The key to buying a black dress that you’ll wear over and over again is to avoid anything that’s too trendy. Stick to styles and silhouettes that you feel comfortable in and that suit your natural body shape, and avoid anything that you might be bored of within six months.
Invest In Quality
As with any wardrobe staple, investing in a black dress by paying a bit more than you would typically spend on one item of clothing will help you in the long-run. Instead of buying a cheap dress that might only last you a year, invest in a black dress made with quality fabric and exceptional tailoring.
Choose A Versatile Black Dress
Black dresses are wardrobe staples because they can be worn for so many occasions — but in order for this to be true, it’s important to choose a versatile dress that can be dressed up or down depending on your needs. Buying a relatively simple dress that works well with a range of accessories is essential for having a black dress that’s your go-to when your other wardrobe items won’t do.
Accessorize For The Season
You can purchase a black dress that works well all year long — the key is in the accessories! A well-fitting black dress can be worn during the summer with strappy heels and colourful jewelry, and the same dress can work well in the winter with the addition of semi-sheer tights, a cute cardigan or even a pair of ankle booties.
Accessorize For The Occasion
The perfect, little, black dress will be easy to dress up or down depending on the occasion. For work, keep your look more professional with a cardigan and a pair of flats. For more formal events, amp up the accessories with a statement necklace, a pair of heels and a colourful clutch. Be mindful when choosing your black dress that the neckline and hemline are appropriate for a variety of occasions.
