One of my favorite seasons is here and I couldn’t be more excited to dig into my closet and bring out all the cozy sweaters, cute booties and trendy flannels. While I was going through my fall wardrobe, I couldn’t help but notice the variety of black dresses I have. You name it, I have it! Short sleeves, long sleeves, lace sleeves, embellished collars, sweater dress, fit and flare, long dress, short dress, its all there! Black is after all my favorite color! It’s also chic, simple, elegant, flattering and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. At least this is what I tell myself to make myself feel less embarrassed about the number of black dresses I have.
All this to say, this discovery is what inspired today’s post. I would like to think that I am not the only one with a handful of black dresses that are purchased for any and all kinds of seasons. So, today I have put together 5 ways to style a black dress for fall 2021. All these different fall outfits use one staple black dress (that you and I have in that closet of ours). I also paired the dress with different shoes and accessories as a way to dress it up or down depending on the occasion. I hope these outfits give you inspiration in styling your black dress this fall season.

Outfit #1: Fall Cardigan
Let’s start by a casual everyday outfit that you can wear for a date night or a girls get together. You can pair the black dress with a long cardigan such as this one thats either plain or has a fun fall print. You can give the outfit an oomph by switching out your apple watch band, adding in gold layered necklace, a fall-inspired tumbler and open back booties!
Outfit #2: Jeans Jacket
This is another great and casual yet chic outfit that you can effortlessly put together using a preowned jean jacket, paired with a plaid scarf and ankle booties. Complete the look with these Starbucks cups and a stack of bracelets.
Outfit #3: Sweater Vest
Now let’s get a little fancy! This outfit features a sweater vest with collar details that easily makes this outfit a more formal one. Pair it with the cute black booties and elegant gold necklace, bracelet and earring. You can wear this outfit to work, date night or to a party!
Outfit #4: Blazer
Outfit #5: Kimono/Shawl Wrap
Outfit #5 is my kind of outfit! I love kimonos all year round! This one in particular is flattering with the front knot. You can wear it open or closed. You can also wear it with a fitted black dress. I paired it here with silver watch and jewelry for change, along with a chic crossbody bag and statement boots!
I hope these outfits have your fashion wheels turning! I can’t wait to see how your style your black dresses this season. Please share your outfits in the comments below or tag me on instagram @marihamhannablog.
