Style Hints: The Black Dress

Style Hints: The Black Dress


Every girl needs a key party piece in their wardrobe and here at IKRUSH the classic black dress is our favourite night-out staple. Simple, elegant and fashionable, the black dress is a closet must-have for every fashionista and its timeless design means you will be reaching for it over and over again.


The black dress can be styled in many different ways, making it perfect for a night out with the girls or a more formal evening event. Weddings, graduations and proms are also occasions where a plain black dress can be jazzed up to look effortlessly on-trend. Right now we're in love with retro velvet chokers which can be added to your outfit to create a vintage, nineties-style look. If your personal style is a bit more glamorous, pair your dress with a gold arm cuff or a boho finger chain to accessorise in style for any occasion.


Our favourite thing about the classic black dress is its versatility - it comes in a variety of different designs meaning there's truly something for everyone. When shopping for your black dress, consider your own personal style carefully and choose something that will complement your wardrobe and can be worn time and time again. The black dress comes in almost all on-trend designs, including off-shoulder bodycon fits, velvet choker-neckline styles and strapless bodices with cut-out detailing. If you're looking for a design that will go with absolutely anything, we recommend a plain black mid-length dress that will be super flattering on all body-shapes.


Shoes are always a vital part of any outfit and they can be the difference between making your black dress look mediocre or creating a knock-out party look. To make the most of styling your outfit, choose a pair of killer stiletto heels that will complement your dress perfectly. If you prefer heels that are a little more comfortable, a sturdy block heel will make sure you can dance the night away with ease.
