Hi everyone! Today is a quick post to share this chic and simple black dress.
In the summertime, when it’s hot, I tend to always want to wear shorts and a tank top. It’s nice having a go-to casual outfit but it does start to feel repetitive and boring after so many wears.
That’s why I like to have the easiest and simplest dress in my wardrobe. Something I can throw on for almost any event that is easy to style, cool, and comfortable.
Are you all the same way?
I’ve actually been thinking about this cycle for awhile. I dream up creative outfits for the next season and then end up sticking to the same outfit formula for the season I’m in. Telling myself it’s just because it’s summer.
But that happens every season and I’m trying to make sure to stay creative no matter the weather.
So, I found this simple black dress recently from Mott & Bow (who make my favorite ethical jeans) and it’s been exactly what my wardrobe needed.
I’ve been wearing it to work, to the beach, to dinners, on vacation. Specifically, while in Toronto on a lake and out in the city.
It’s a tunic like dress that easy to throw on with sandals, clogs, wedges, or white sneakers. I love it in black because it’s easy to dress up for a dressier night out. It also comes in white and blue and white stripes.
It’s been a summer wardrobe essential which I’m also hoping to style into cool fall weather.
As for size notes, I went with my usual size and it fits perfectly.
The material is thick so I can imagine the white is not sheer if that’s the color you’re considering.
Also, for length, I’m just under 5’6″ and is a length I feel comfortable wearing into the office. Even with the belt I still find this black dress to be a great length.
