When browsing through our store, you’ll notice there are dozens of great black long sleeve dresses to choose from. If you are looking for a new dress this season, you’ll want to think about the design, style, and material of your new black long sleeve dress. Keep reading as we share the key things to consider when choosing a new long sleeve dress and how to style it with other items from your wardrobe.
Material Options for a Black Long Sleeve Dress
Black long sleeve dresses can be made from a wide variety of materials. Depending on the time of year you are planning to wear your new dress, you’ll want to think about how thick and heavy the material is. While a black velvet dress might be perfect for the winter months, you’ll find that cotton or satin would be a better material choice in the hot summer weather. The material will also impact the overall comfort and look of the dress, so try to find an option that really stands out to you based on your personal dress style.
How Tight Should a Long Sleeve Dress Be?
Most of our black long sleeve dresses are designed to fit snugly around the body. You’ll want to make sure you check out the size guide on product page, which will help you to select the perfect size. This collared mesh mini dress is a good example of a dress that we recommend fitting tightly to your figure. It’s the perfect option for a night out on the town where you are looking to show off your figure. On the other hand, a loose tunic black dress is meant to have a more relaxed fit. This would be a better option for leisurewear and will allow you to move around freely without any restrictions.
Colors To Wear With Black Dresses
Our black long sleeve dresses are not just pure black, as some have accents of other colors. When you are looking to add accessories or a splash of color, consider red or white for best results. These are classic colors that go with any little black dress, and they’ll complement anyone’s skin tone. This black and white retro plaid dress is a great example of combining two classic colors and offers a timeless dress that will never go out of style. You’ll never get bored of wearing in Black, which is why we highly encourage anyone to stick with neutral colors when updating their wardrobes season by season.
Styling a Black Long Sleeve Dress
Black long sleeve dresses are usually worn as a standalone piece, but you want to make sure you add the right accessories to complete your outfit. In the winter, you may need to put a coat over the dress and add some sheer or black tights to keep your legs warm. Our top recommendation for footwear to go with a slim long sleeve dress is a pair of boots, which could be flat or heeled. For a more casual look, opt to add a pair of sneakers, which will allow you to go shopping or hang out with friends in more relaxing environments. You can add small touches such as a pair of earrings or a pendant necklace to complete your look.
A Figure-Flattering Black Dress
If you want to accentuate your edges, try to find a black long sleeve dress that comes in at the waist. You can also create this effect yourself by adding a belt to the dress. This elastic waist hooded sweater dress really pulls in at the center and looks flattering on women of any height and size. The rest of the design is loose and relaxed, so you won’t find it too restrictive when moving around. Black is a color that slims down anyone who wears it, so it’s the perfect choice to impress your partner or friends the next time you go out together.
