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:
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!

I couldn’t be more in love with an outfit! If you want to channel your inner gypsy exotic persona or if you are feeling like the queen of boho-chic… read on! A long floral dress and a felt floppy hat are a few essential pieces you need when crafting these outfits. These pieces will also maximize your wardrobe’s versatility. I recently ended up at Forever 21 where they have a huge selection of bohemian-styled dresses. The nature-inspired print, plunging neckline, v-back, and the way the entire dress flows as you walk made me love this one!! (Floral Print Maxi Dress, $27.90). If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed that I wore this last Saturday to a friend’s babyshower.
To complete the outfit I wore a floppy hat which adds the perfect boho flair to it. (Floppy Hat, $19.90). What I love about this hat is that it isn’t huge, and that the color complements the dress perfectly. (Felt hats can be worn in the winter, so you can get a lot of use out of one!). And did you notice the layered charm gold necklace that I have on? When it comes to bohemian jewelry, the key is to find earth toned pieces, a statement necklace, or any layered necklace.
What about the footwear? A great option is to pair the outfit with wedges, gladiator sandals or knee-high gladiators. If you live in a city where the temperatures are still a bit cool, you can add an oversized scarf, wrap a pashmina around your shoulders, wear a denim or fringe vest, or ankle booties.
