When talking about fashion trends that never go out of style – minimalism is definitely one of them. A sleek casual black dress lays the groundwork for this type of trend. The color ‘black’ is one of the common choices for the minimalist because it helps in creating a timeless look that you can repeat over an over. A minimal aesthetic is always refreshing – as are simple shapes and clean lines. For today’s post I chose one basic and functional fashion item that I love for the summer. Take a look below at all the reasons for why having one (or two!) casual black long dresses in your closet is always a good idea!
TEN REASONS FOR A BLACK MAXI DRESS:
- DAYTIME TO NIGHTTIME – switch from nude to black heels and you are ready to go out in less than a minute!
- MAXIMUM COMFORT – loose and light to wear
- ‘BLACK’ SLIMS YOU DOWN – the color black elongates and makes you appear thinner
- EASY TO DRESS IT UP – wrap a sparkly shawl around your shoulders or a jacket
- PERFECT FOR HOT WEATHER – allows your body to breathe during high temperatures
- NO NEED TO MATCH IT – toss it on, zero time required to put together an outfit
- FEMININE – maxi dresses are ladylike and flirty
- EASY MAINTENANCE – most are wrinkly free (super important!) & machine washable
- EFFORTLESS STYLE – casual yet trendy & sleek
- AFFORDABLE – available at any price range
Treat yourself to this minimalist essential, then skip the accessories and opt for a clean look. Remember that Less is More! Otherwise wear it with barely-there bracelets, necklaces, or earrings. And as usual, wear the dress with confidence! Feel free to share your thoughts, xo!
