Many of us think of light colors and cheery patterns when we think of summer dresses. And while I have worn many frocks that fall into that category this season, I also like to wear black during the summer.
This little black summer dress from Stella Carakasi is comfortable, easy to style and it’s lightweight without being too thin. The fabric is an 80% hemp, 20% polyester blend and has a 100% cotton lining (no slip needed!).
It’s a midi length with an symmetrical hemline and has shirring in the front. The bodice is a tank style which means you can wear a normal bra (who else is tired of wearing a strapless bra? 🙋).
I love the color combo of pink and black so I accessorized my look with a pink wrap (similar) and a pastel pink leather choker I bought in Sonoma.
For shoes, I wore the pretty embroidered mules I bought earlier this summer.
This little black summer dress is not only great for wearing right now but it will easily transition into fall. I added a cropped sweater to this look for extra coverage and a little warmth on cooler days.
The Happy Daze Dress also comes in white and gorgeous black and white stripe.
