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:

  1. DAYTIME TO NIGHTTIME – switch from nude to black heels and you are ready to go out in less than a minute!
  2. MAXIMUM COMFORT – loose and light to wear
  3. ‘BLACK’ SLIMS YOU DOWN – the color black elongates and makes you appear thinner
  4. EASY TO DRESS IT UP – wrap a sparkly shawl around your shoulders or a jacket
  5. PERFECT FOR HOT WEATHER – allows your body to breathe during high temperatures
  6. NO NEED TO MATCH IT – toss it on, zero time required to put together an outfit
  7. FEMININE – maxi dresses are ladylike and flirty
  8. EASY MAINTENANCE – most are wrinkly free (super important!) & machine washable
  9. EFFORTLESS STYLE – casual yet trendy & sleek
  10. 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!

Dress: FOREVER 21 / Hat: FOREVER 21 / Necklace: FOREVER 21

Boho Chic | Floral Dress

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.  Don’t miss these beautiful floral dresses: Floral Maxi Dress – Lace-Up Maxi Dress – Floral M-Slit Maxi Dress – Rose Print Maxi Dress – Floral Ruffle Maxi Dress.  Which is your favorite?
