Filled with florals, touched with ruffles, or flaunting sheer panels, black summer dresses are a basic staple for the warmest season of all! It's simple to style black maxi dresses for any time of year, but especially in the summer when accessorizing can be minimal and the black dresses you love most can make a stand-alone statement. To bring a summer black dress ensemble to life in a way that keeps your look light and free, find which one of our quirky bags you can't live without, slip into a simple pair of strappy sandals, and step out into the sunshine, where your versatile look can be admired!
HOW TO WEAR A BLACK DRESS IN SUMMER?
The best way to style black summer dresses is minimally, letting your functional accessories do the work. For example, a black A-line dress is best flaunted with a pair of cat-eye sunglasses, a bright purse, and espadrille wedges, whereas black maxi dresses are made summery by sun hats, straw bags, and embroidered flats. If your summertime plans are adventure-filled, figure out which practical add-ons feel just-right with a black mini dress or basic sundresses. It's hard to go wrong with such a simple formula!
