The Black Midi Dress: Changing up your LBD

Changing Up Your Black Dress Game

The black midi dress

Lately, I've been looking for ways to change up my black dress game. In the last post I suggested wearing all blue instead of the usual head to toe black. In this post, I want to talk about the black midi dress.

I've been jokingly calling the black midi dress the LongBD. It's such a classic that it can easily take the title of the go-to dress in your closet.

The dress doesn't need to be expensive to look good. In fact, the simpler the dress, the more valuable it looks. However, if you're looking for something nicer than the forever21 options, this Alexander Wang is a great choice; this Milly dress is similar as well. I also love this ruffle Elizabeth and James dress and this Alice + Olivia dress for a more high-end look.

I prefer to keep the dress simple because I paired it with Christian Louboutin pumps. I never want to look like I've piled on every fancy designer item I own just to look good. We can look classic and sophisticated without spending a lot of money. But anytime I wear Ruby Woo lipstick, I want to match it with the red sole! :P

The black midi dress (actually I think this is considered tea length) is one of those trends that became popular recently with the rest of the longer body con dresses. I also saw it worn a lot with a trench, and I have to say I loved the look. I never say no to a good trench ;)

Jewelry and Accessories

The simplicity of the whole look calls for some jewelry. The Madewell washband ring is perfect if you like big rings, this Kenneth Jay Lane geometric ring is a similar choice.

I love ring sets because you can get a lot of different rings in one, like this Gorjana set. Square rings are another favorite, especially this rose gold set, or this mixed metals set from Chloe Greta.

I know it seems like I wear it all the time, but that's the point of having a Chanel bag! It's a great investment because it doesn't go out of style. You will carry it for many years and it's perfect for a black midi dress!

I hope you guys consider changing up your LBD, and trying out some different looks!
