Is there anything more stylish than the perfect black dress?

Black doesn’t have to be boring, and there are plenty of ways to express yourself whilst wearing this most fashionable shade. Stylish, easy to wear, and always on trend, the black dress is officially back in vogue, so why not give it a go?

This article will show you how to wear a little black dress for any occasion.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to wearing your favorite little black dress, making it easy to create a timeless outfit that will attract attention for all the right reasons. Here are some of our favorite ways to wear this wardrobe staple:

  • Karl Lagerfeld knows that his signature monochrome never goes out of fashion, and if it’s good enough for the King of fashion it’s good enough for us, so why not inject some spring time style into your outfit by pairing your black dress with crisp white accessories?

  • If you’re shopping for a new dress then look for one with attention-grabbing details. Interesting fabrics such as super-soft silk, delicate lace or cotton with raw edging can turn a good dress into a great one.
  • It’s OK to experiment and break the fashion rules: you can wear black with other neutral shades such as nude, beige and even navy blue. The overall effect will look classic and incredibly stylish!
  • Want to really make a statement and stand out from the crowd? Channel you inner A-lister and team your dress with a neck-lengthening up ‘do and plenty of gold and faux-diamond embellished bling for a look that is truly red carpet worthy. Look to the recent Oscars for the ultimate style inspiration.
