One of my most worn clothing items in the summer are midi dresses. They are so versatile, comfortable and look super cute. I love that they can be worn in a ton of unique ways and you can create several outfits with just one item. I recently purchased this Wayf Blouson Midi Dress in black that can be dressed up or down! It is so versatile. In this post I’m sharing 5 ways how to style this black midi dress for summer. These outfit ideas are perfect for many occasions – from the office to church to the grocery store! You can literally wear this black midi dress around town anytime and for any occasion!
Summer Style with a Black Midi Dress
If you’re heading to the beach, the pier or outdoor dining, this outfit would be perfect! I styled the black midi dress with my straw hat and my Crown Vintage eyelet espadrille wedges (similar here). It’s so easy to thrown on and looks super cute!
Some details on my straw hat: This is hands down the best straw hat for summer. It is the Brixton Joanna Straw hat. It is super cute and perfect for the summer—patio, poolside, anywhere! I have a big head and very thick hair and I ordered the Small! I highly recommend it!
Casual Ways to Style a Black Midi Dress
I’ve been loving casual outfits lately and pairing skirts or dresses with white sneakers (see how to style a striped T-shirt dress with white sneakers here). I love the look of a cute slim sneaker paired with a skirt or dress. For this comfy outfit, I paired the black midi dress with my jean jacket and white sneakers from Sam Edelman. This outfit is so comfy, so easy to throw on and can be worn anywhere! I wear it while running errands!
For my second casual look with the black midi dress, I simply paired it with my leopard print flats. This might be the easiest outfit to thrown on in the history of outfits! But yet it looks super cute! I love the hint of leopard – it looks so fun!
Sophisticated Outfit with a Black Midi Dress
I love outfits that are easy to throw on but still look super sophisticated. For this classic and timeless look, I styled the black midi dress with black ankle strap heels, black rock bracelet and my black Stella McCartney Mini Falabella bag. I think this outfit would be perfect for date night or a party (hopefully a socially distant party in the times of the pandemic).
You can also pair the black midi dress with red heels (another option here and here) for a fun pop of color. Red and black is one my favorite color combinations. I think outfits in this color combo look super edgy but so cute!
Office Outfits with a Black Midi Dress
I love that this black midi dress can be worn literally anywhere and it’s perfect for the office. Paired with a blazer, it looks super sophisticated and put together. The best part is that it literally takes no effort and it is so easy to throw on!
For the first office look, I styled the midi dress with a black fitted blazer and nude accessories. For the second look, I opted for a simple black and white outfit. I threw on a white collarless blazer (similar option here) and white pointed toe heels to complete the look with the midi dress.
