Black dresses are a cornerstone of my summer wardrobe, but I do try to nod to the season by wearing them with bright accessories, like my red No. 6 huaraches or an Antonello bag. Here are a few I like a lot, starting with one that’s a little surprising for me, as I never much go for corset belts. But the one here is so subtle, and the lines of the rest of the dress are so clean, that it works.
A sweet neckline on an inexpensive, throw-it-on-and-go option.
I like that this feels kind of Grecian and breezy and romantic.
Sexy but also rather sweet.
Just the simplest V-neck t shirt dress.
A very feminine, flowy plus-size option (I’m sorry, I know you don’t always like it when I single out the plus-size options, but I feel like I need to when you can’t discern from the model that this is the case).
I’m pretty sure I posted this excellent black floral from the Kooples before, but now it’s on sale, and how great is that?
I just like how very comfortable this one looks.
The asymmetrical hem looks so striking on this otherwise quite straightforward dress.
