DECODING BLACK DRESSES

DECODING BLACK DRESSES

Posted by Joanna Tiller on Mar 18th 2020

A black dress has been a classic in fashion since the 60s, thanks Audrey! Every girl knows and loves black dresses, but it can be super overwhelming with all the different styles. Dress Up alone carries so many different styles of black dresses, and we love all of them for different reasons and purposes! 

Sloane Tie-Back Pleated Babydoll Dress

Let's start with the tried and true... the Little Black Dress! To be honest, there are so many variations of the little black dress alone, but certain characteristics make it special. Any sort of above the knee or mini black dress is a little one in our book! They can be flowy, like this babydoll one, tight, or straight fitted along the body. Personally, we love one with some movement to add to the fun factor! Little black dresses can be worn for a night out, shopping on the weekends, or even to a semi formal. This dress is perfect for any occasion, especially ones where you want to throw on some heels and winged liner! 

Piper Wide Leg Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits fall under dresses in our book! Jumpsuits are a favorite among everyone, because they are such an effortless outfit, especially black ones. There are certain times you want a one and done look, where all you need is to pick out shoes and accessories and maybe grab a jacket. Jumpsuits are a great way to elevate your work style, grab a plaid blazer, some loafers, and boom! You have a chic, comfortable, and professional outfit in a second. Like the jumpsuit above, some have pockets which is always a lifesaver during the day. Not only can you wear this to the office, but it would be perfect for Sunday brunch or a family gathering!

Natalie Jersey Knit Midi Dress

Midi and maxi dresses have been making a huge comeback recently! Black midi dresses are a great staple and investment into your closet. Typically, midi dresses have a more relaxed and loose fit, making them super comfortable and easy for everyday wear! You want something that will move with you through your crazy days, this one featured is in a jersey knit, making it breathable and flexible. Since they are more loose, they pair perfectly with a belt or denim jacket around the waist, and we recommend looking for one with a slit to add a little something! These dresses are perfect for everyday errands, cleaning, kid chasing, you get the idea.
