A black dress is the ultimate confidence booster. Black dresses are always flattering and they fit into all dress codes – from smart casual to black tie. A black dress is not to be under-estimated – just because it’s not colourful, doesn’t mean it’s boring. In fact, there are so many gorgeous styles of black dress from skater dresses to shift dresses to stunning bodycon dresses. We’re spoiled for choice!
The most fashionable celebrities often wear black dresses and if they’re good enough for the likes of Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian they’re good enough for me. These are the most popular black dress trends right now, set by the celebs:
Victoria Beckham – Smart Black Dress
Victoria Beckham means business during London Fashion Week. It’s a busy time for her and she’s a working mum so she needs a dress that’s easy to wear but looks smart and sophisticated. I suggest copying her chic look with the V by Very lace collared A’line dress.
Nicki Minaj – Black Maxi Dress
Nicki is the ultimate diva, showing just how good you can make a plain black maxi dress look. A black dress allows you to spend more time on some seriously cool acessories. Nicki’s dress reminds me of the V by Very racer back maxi dress. Then layer up with some statement jewellery like the Glamorous tassel necklace and some gold bracelets.
Kim Kardashian – Black Bodycon Dress
Kim Kardashian always looks glamorous, and since meeting Kanye her wardrobe only contains black dresses, beige dresses and white dresses. They do suit her though. I can imagine Kim wearing the AX Paris eyelet lace up side midi dress – what do you think?
Taylor Swift – Black Midi Dress
Taylor has a fan base of millions and when she acts, everyone follows. I love how she’s rocking a simple black midi dress for a TV appearance, as it highlights her slim frame without it appearing as if she’s tried too hard. Her dress is similar to the V by Very lace up sleeve jersey midi dress. But you need some killer heels to work the look like Taylor did – try the Paper Dolls Jezabel caged court shoes.
Cara Delevingne – Black Skater Dress
Cara may have left modelling for film, but she still has a great sense of style. At the premiere of her latest film, she looked awesome in a feminine black dress and boyish boots. To nailthe rock chick look you need a loose dress like the Samantha Faiers lace panel skater dress. It looks fabulous when worn with boots like the TIimberland lace up boots. The finishing touch is a pendant like the River Island drop detail layered necklace.
