A solid black dress is a must for every woman’s wardrobe. Fitted or loose, long or short, this is a versatile piece of clothing which flatters almost every body shape and skin tone. Black dresses are suitable for parties, cocktails, dates, weddings, red carpet events and even for running errands.
A black dress can hide your body’s imperfections, if chosen well. Urbanboss offers a wide collection of various black dresses – from the classic little black dress to one shoulder, sequin and maxi black dresses. Avoid wearing only a black dress and black shoes, this won’t make the dress stand out. Even the plainest black dress can look fabulous with the right jewelry, a trendy clutch and a pair of high heels. A basic black dress can be worn with a blazer or a fitted cardigan.
The little black dress requires something more formal like a fitted black shrug, a shawl or a gauzy wrap. For a cocktail party or a night out, accessorize your dress with flashy diamond bracelets and earrings. Brighten up your dress with a colorful handbag or for a more elegant look – take a satin clutch. It is needless to say that pearls can make you look really sophisticated.
Use your shoes to add some color to your look – hot pink or yellow will draw lots of attention to your outfit and legs. Try stilettos, court shoes or peep-toes. They will look great paired with your black dress. Every woman should have a little black dress, but there are many ways to make it look like new every time you wear it. You can add a bright colored belt or one in a neutral tone; this will add great sense of style to the dress.
Putting on a bold necklace is a great way to show off your individuality and brighten up the dress. Put on a jacket above your little black dress for a day at the office. This is an easy way to dress up, without looking inappropriate at your workplace. It also offers an easy transition from work to a night out, if you are going out straight after your work day ends.
Choose your black dress with the idea that you can wear it many times to different types of events. Creative cuts, ruffles or sequins will be harder to dress up. Having a few black dresses which fit you well and compliment your shape is a good idea.
Know your good assets and accentuate them. If you like your back, consider a black dress which will reveal it. If you think you have a good neckline and shoulders, a one shoulder black dress will definitely make you stand out in the crowd. If you don’t like the lower half of your body, choose a dress with a fuller skirt, which will skim over that part.
If you don’t want to reveal too much, choose a short black dress with three-quarter sleeves. A black dress, just like any other, requires confidence, so choose wisely something you’d love to wear. Browse the beautiful collection of urban women’s black dresses.
