Black Summer Dress Edit

Best Black Summer Dresses on the High Stress 2023 | Monica Beatrice Blog

A black summer dress, to me, is one of the best summer wardrobe staples you can lean on. With a tan (real or faux), some neutral accessories and a low bun, the black summer dress is a one-stop outfit.

I was browsing online the other day for black summer dresses, and came up with an edit of seven stellar choices. Each of these is midi or maxi in length, which I find most wearable, lightweight and has an interesting detail.

Have a peruse below and let me know if any take your fancy!

Nobodys Child Black Summer Dress | Monica Beatrice Blog

Black Maxine Midi Dress, Nobody’s Child // £95

I have this gorgeous black summer dress and cannot wait to wear it off the shoulder with big earrings and flat sandals when the weather heats up. You can also opt to wear the sleeves on the shoulder.

Mint Velvet Black Summer Dress | Monica Beatrice Blog

Black Broderie Maxi Dress, Mint Velvet // £139

How pretty is the shoulder detail on this LBD? I love the shape of the bust area and detail on the sleeves, it looks so luxe. This is a timeless black summer dress you’ll reach for in years to come.

H&M Black Summer Dress | Monica Beatrice Blog

Tie-Belt Button-Front Dress, H&M, £34.99

This is a great value black summer dress option. This is 100% a dress I’d wear alllll summer long, it’s an elegant ‘throw-it-on’ piece. Things to note: it’s 82% viscose, which is a lovely fabric, long, and has a simple button detail which makes it look more £££ than its price tag.

The White Company Black Summer Dress | Monica Beatrice Blog

Cotton Ladder-Trim Maxi Dress, The White Company, £129

I have heart eyes for this beautiful black summer dress 😍 This feels like the type of dress you’d slip on and instantly feel like you’re on holiday. The length, fabric and cut are all so well thought-through and elevated.

Black Halter Broderie Beach Midi Dress, River Island, £47

A playful cutout detail is such a cute addition! This strappy summer dress would look as amazing for a day strolling on holiday, as it would dressed up for an evening meal, date or girls night out.

Amazon Black Summer Dress | Monica Beatrice Blog

Cut-out Black Linen Midi Dress, Amazon Fashion, £55

I bought this dress last summer and wore it SO much! It’s the perfect little black summer dress, I ended up reaching for it day and night when I was in Menorca. A note on sizing: I ordered my dress in ‘L’ (I usually wear a UK 12) which was a fairly relaxed fit on me, I could have gone for ‘M’ for a more form-fitting fit look, but in the heat I was spaaace haha!

WAT The Brand Black Summer Dress | Monica Beatrice Blog

Short Sleeved Tiered Dress, WAT. The Brand, £95

Have you checked out WAT. The Brand yet? It’s the fashion label of fashion editors, stylists and influencers Sarah Ellis and Philippa Ross, and retail expert Nicky Green, delivering effortless classic pieces. This tiered summer dress is one such piece. No doubt a go-to all summer long.

do you have a favourite from the edit?

Let me know if you have a favourite from this black summer dress edit! Any of the above would be a gorgeous choice for the summer season, and no doubt would be a piece you’ll reach for in years to come!

A black summer dress is one of my go-to pieces for the season. I’m imaging pairing mine with a straw tote, flat sandals, turquoise earrings and a hot hot day!

Love, Monica x
