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.
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.
What do you think of simple black dresses? Do you wear them?
