I absolutely love a black maxi dress – it’s a wardrobe must-have that’s both versatile and chic. I can wear it for any occasion, whether I’m running errands or attending a fancy event.

Black Romper

I love a romper option as it can be styled casually with sandals or sneakers for vacation, but can be dressed up with heels for a spring or summer date night. This one has pleats making it look like a dress which is perfect for your next event. The pleats add a touch of sophistication and elegance to the romper, making it a great choice for a wedding, cocktail party, or any other formal occasion.

This dress is such a stunner!  It’s classic yet a touch revealing and fits so beautifully.  I’m a size 8 for reference and it curves in all the right places.  This is a great one to have on hand when you need something to wear to a black tie wedding for a dressy cocktail event. The slit at the front adds a touch of sexiness without being too revealing, making it the perfect balance of sophistication and glamour.

Shoes To Wear With a Little Black Dress

Picking out the perfect shoes to wear with a little black dress is my favorite challenge for myself. I DO take inspiration from style icons like Coco Chanel and Audrey Hepburn to make it interesting. 

For a chic and trendy look, I’ll usually go for a pair of stylish pumps or strappy sandals. But if being bold is on my agenda that day, I’ll try bright red or metallic heels to add a pop of color. Just like how Ms. Chanel would mix and match her classic pieces with unexpected accessories. Sometimes, I’ll even channel my inner Holly Golightly by pairing my little black dress with some cool white sneakers or even my edgy ankle boots. Which would be for a more casual and laid-back vibe. 

And, if I want to make a statement, I’d wear a shoe with unique textures or eye-catching details to take my outfit to the next level!
