Black Summer Dresses- 25 Dresses For Someone Who Only Wears Black

If you're looking for black dresses for this summer then this the post for you. I know when most people think about summer they think of white dresses and pastel colored patterns. But I love a chic black dress all year round. Black never goes out of fashion as far as I'm concerned and if you're reading this post then you probably know exactly what I mean. 

So, i handpicked a few of the best styles in each dress category. I picked everything from cute bohemian dresses to bodycon knee length dresses. I even threw in a few of those new sexy cut out dresses that are all the rage. Happy dress shopping ladies.

Every woman has a space in her closet for a few of these casual dresses. Especially ones in black because they are so easy to dress up or dress down. You can easily pair these with sneakers or heels. Personally I love the one i chose below that has a bell shape to it. You could quickly go from beach dress to date night dress just by tucking the straps in (making it appear strapless) and swapping out your sandals for a cute kitten heel and adding a bold earring and boom you're now ready to wow him on that date.

Going to a holiday party, Maybe a date to a uber fancy event? These are the dresses you need. These dresses will make a statement when you want in a room. Don't you just love that about black? Always a show stopper but never too outrageous.

For a cocktail dress I like to keep things very elegant by going all black but mixed with a bold design and perfectly cut silhouette. It's just enough to make it event worthy without it needing to have all the drama of a floor length gown. I hand picked every one of these black summer dresses for that exact reason. You will def get a lot nods for style and grace if you're seen out in one of these. I'd pair mine with this beautiful clutch purse and these jaw dropping heels.

the "cut out" black summer dresses

Ok so this style of dress is so IN right now and I love it. I love seeing all the fun new ways designers are getting so creative with this trend. The trick to choosing a great cut out dress is to make sure you prioritize elegance first. The ones I chose below are a bit more on the sexy side but choices but the cuts and shapes aren't so cut out that you lack the class that needed. I would tone down a cut out like these with a lower but chic heel like this or like even these cute black strappy one to match the straps of the dress. For a purse i would go with something a little more casual like and unstructured cross body bag. I think that would look great with any of these black summer dresses.

form fitting black summer dresses

Any women who steps out in a dress like this means business. These sexy silhouette dresses are great for special occasions or just a big night out with the girls where you wanna feel like a million bucks. These form fitting dresses are elegant but scream confidence and when you wear them in black, oh there is no comparison. For these type of black summer dresses I would pair it with a simple but classic pump (here is my all time favorites) and I would wear my hair pulled back to really show off the figure of the dress.

the hippy-esque black summer dresses

Last but not least one of my all time favorite styles of black summer dresses, The gypsy-esque bohemian dress. These dress styles are so great for a quick throw on at the beach and definitely a must pack for your next island type getaway.  I would pair this style with a wicker bag to keep it fun and casual and a cute nude gladiator or slip on and tons of fun dangly jewelry. Just have fun with it and go with messy beach hair and stay super comfy.
