The Little Black Dress

This post is from my previous blog (, although I have edited the content a bit.

My mother used to say that every woman needs to have a black dress. Turns out she was absolutely right.

In this post, I am pairing up a black body con dress from Zara with different accessories to create different looks. I hope you can get some inspiration on how to wear your black dress. 

PS- My apologies if these pictures are not so sharp. 


1)  Work or Casual Outing Look

Sometimes, less is more and flat shoes are also pretty comfortable. I wore this outfit to an evening service and wanted to look stylish while keeping my accessories very minimal. The look worked out just as I had imagined.

                      Sweater- Zara; Ankara purse- Hand made by Me πŸ™‚ Shoes- Call It Spring


2) The Not So Casual Look

I pimped up the look above by wearing heels and loved the outcome. If only I could wear heels all day. (Oh well)



Shoes and Shades- Aldo


3) Coachella Maybe- Afro Party Look Definitely 

I think I may have achieved the look I was looking for. (Fingers crossed). What are your thoughts? Could you wear this for a music festival?

Shirt- Aeropostale, Sling on- Roots, Shoes- Keds

4) The Turban and The Jacket

Turns out in the process of switching accessories I never got the opportunity to take off the turban from the look above. However, I am positive that this outfit will still look amazing with or without the turban.

Shoes- H&M, Jacket- Zara, Beads- Handmade with Ankara, Turban- Ankara material, Shades- Ardene (Can’t remember)


 5) Warm Spring Day on The Beach

 For the love of Sharwama, drop the food S!


Kimono- Aeropostale, Shades- Aldo

So, here is how I styled 1 dress in 5 different ways. If you don’t already have a black dress, go get yourself one.

(Remember, the more simple the design of the dress is, the easier it is to create different looks!)

Till next time,
