The Chic, Black Summer Dress


Images above via Pinterest
Style Theory: Isn't it strange that I am mad for colour all through the autumn and winter and when the sun shines I reach for black. I think it is the fact that black looks so chic against sunkissed skin and as there is so much colour around in the summer to make the world look vibrant I feel I don't need to cheer myself up by wearing it. So, for me, a black dress is my summer holiday must have, it can be worn to the beach or out out in the evening, add either a simple pair of flip flops for daytime or a black espadrilles and a basket bag for evening..simple but effective..

Mara Hoffman £220
Starting with a pricey but classic dress that will never date, you can wear this dress forever! Light, cotton gauze this dress would look beautiful on holiday and when you get back home wear with a black biker jacket over the top and a pair of black, flat pointed shoes..
Isabel Marant Etoile £151.20
For a good black dress (at a discounted price) it is always worth keeping an eye on The Outnet they often have some classic shapes (in cotton) perfect for the summer and styles you can wear year after year. I bought a Isabel Marant Etoile black dress last year and wore it so much, even over skinny jeans in the winter to get my money's worth.
See by Chloe £110
A flattering dress that will look just as good thrown over a swimsuit for going to the beach as off to dinner in the evening.

I do love a long sleeve especially when it is broderie anglais, again a perfect day to evening holiday dress..

  1. Love these. Asos does a nice version of the chloe dress. Dropped hem sleeveless with a frill.

  2. Indian fashion has changed with each passing era. The Indian fashion industry is rising by leaps and bounds, and every month one witnesses some new trend or the other. India's economic growth also had a major impact on fashion trends. The ever increasing purchasing power of the middle class has brought fashion within easy reach of the commoner. Evolving work standards have also increased the scope of fashion in the country as there is a striking need for comfortable clothing during long working hours.

  3. The Origina Replica Breitling claimed the bubble as a potential source of weakness that they were finally able to overcome with technology. Well, heading back to the late 1960’s and the high-end?,Rolex Submarine the brand took a page from the contemporary Detroit era of cars – as in, there’s no cure for cubic inches. In 1:1 Replica Rolex Watches case, though, they mounted what now looks like an absolutely insane crystal that’s now known to Tag Heuer Watches?collectors as a “Top Hat”.He sent lots of pictures along the way to show the innards of the?Omega Watches , including the Hermes handbags correctly signed inside case back.
