OOTD: How to Style a Black Dress

Black Dress Picture

You may have noticed my sudden love for black, especially black dresses. Well, you may think it is sudden but it is not. There was a point in my teenage years when I wore only black. My wardrobe was all about black dresses, skirts, tops, shoes, almost everything was in black back then. I found it easy to style black so it became my personal style. Nowadays, I still like to have a few black pieces in my wardrobe every now and again, but I tend to do colour more.

However when it comes down to investment pieces, black will always win. There is something about the colour black, that just does it for me. Black pieces and accessories are classy and effortlessly chic. You don’t have to over think your accessories when you have a black dress on, because any colour would look great paired next to it. It makes dressing up easy.

Miss Selfridge Black Dress

A simple black dress is great for those lazy days where you need to get dressed up but can’t think or can’t be bothered to think of what to wear. I love this particular black fitted long sleeve jersey midi dress with a scooped out neck and twist knot detail. I got it some weeks ago and I find it so comfortable, it feels so soft, I could sleep in it.  I think this piece is super stylish. I am going to wear the life out of this one.

The beauty about a black dress is that it never goes out of fashion, always in vogue, and with the right accessories, you could wear your black dress to every occasion, so having a couple may help create a capsule wardrobe.

  1. You look fab – I thought that dress was way more expensive than Miss Selfridge. I do love a bit of black but I’m trying hard to buy more colour at the moment.

  2. I love black because it is always in style, super sleek, minimal, just fire to my soul. I love how you have the pops of color with the bag and the shoes – yes they are pops of color for someone who only wears black. Great styling!

  3. I have a lovely long black maxi dress and I like to add a pop of colour by adding pretty sandles, a nice bag and bright nail varnish. Bright pink works well for me

  4. The dress is really gorgeous. I love how you put the accessories together. I love black dresses too. You look cool baby.

  5. Your right. The little black dress is so important. I have just bought a new maxi one and also need a midi one for dress up.

    Had to do this cos I have lost alot of weight over the last 6 months, deliberately mind. I adore the Ms Selfridge dress your wearing. I like wearing a maxi one with a denim gillet/waistcoat for smart/quirky in the summer.

    I love the Coach bag you have teamed it with, especially. Looking good as ever Stella. You always inspire me to keep thinking about my wardrobe and the way I wear things. Glad I found your blog

  6. totally!! Got to love a black dress.. Perfect if your going for a meal as it doesn’t show that food baby afterwards! haha
