12 best black winter dresses for 2020 – Stylist Magazine
October 27, 2020 - Party Maxi Dress
We know what you’re thinking, the black dress is hardly anything new, right? It’s the fail-safe style to rely on at all times. So why have we decided to show you some of our favourites? For that exact reason. This, along with H&M’s latest collaboration with The Vampire’s Wife reigniting our love for black dresses with its edit of dreamy styles in luxe lace and velvet fabrics. Naturally these sold out within minutes (there may be a few remaining in stores, if you’re lucky) so we’ve found some alternatives.
Interested in a black dress that stands out from the crowd? These are the minis you’ll want to style with knee-high boots, the midi dresses you can wear no matter the occasion and the maxi dresses which will make you feel instantly fancy. All including key autumn/winter details – from the puff sleeve and the oversized collar to tiered hems and embellished buttons.
In a time where everything is a bit up in the air, easy to throw on outfits are something that make us happy. So for the days when you decide to let your joggers and hoodies have a day off, the black dress will be there for you.
With clever styling tricks, you can make any dress work for winter but it’s also key to invest in warmer materials such as leather, wool and cashmere. It’s also best to use layering tools to style them, like heavy duty boots, roll neck tops and longline coats.
We already know black dresses stand the test of time. They’ll never date, they look effortless at all times and you can get them on any budget. Here’s our edit of the best black dresses you’ll want to buy now and wear through to winter.
