Nothing is more classic than a little black dress. If your style is similar to mine, then most of your dresses are probably black. I have several different styles of black dresses. Out of my 16 dresses, 7 of them are black. In this post, I’ll show you how I would style each of them in different ways (photo heavy post). I have everything from a kid-size dress to a formal dress because you can’t go wrong with a black dress right? I’ll also include links to each dress or similar ones if I can’t find the exact one. Let’s get started on styling little black dress outfits!

So, if you haven’t gathered, most of these dresses and accessories are oldish. They aren’t trendy. A lot were either given to me, bought 5+ years ago, or from a small shop. My fashion posts won’t really fit with what’s popular right now. Hope this post gave you some ideas for interesting outfits or some new pieces to shop for.
