How to Transition You LBD into Summer

It’s officially Summer!


Who doesn’t love the summertime? Warm weather, BBQs, pool time, it’s all so fun! I also love summer because of the easy outfits you can style. In my humble opinion, summer is the easiest season to style for and perhaps the cutest? I love fun and floral patterns BUT what about all those black dresses sitting in your closet? Are you just supposed to wait until it gets colder to wear darker colors again?




I’m all about getting the most wear out of any clothes you buy for any season. Today I’ll be showing you a simple way to style black dresses in the summertime to make them a bit more summer-y so they spend less time in the back of your closet!


How do you style little black dresses in the summer?


I think the easiest way to style LBDs is to just wear them as a neutral. Black goes with anything and everything (besides maybe brown) so really you can and should wear them all year round. Just add fun colors and patterns with them like, for example, in a wrap top!

I got this specific top from Lulu’s last year and haven’t been able able to find it exactly but the concept works for any wrap top or tee you might have. At the end of this post there is a shop section (as always) with similar pieces and others for you to consider this summer. You can find wrap tops just about anywhere in the summer because they are so carefree and flirty. Why not get more wear out of them as well by layering over your black dress? This creates a unique look that will have people asking where you got your outfit. Another great thing about this look is it’s so versatile and customizable. There are no rules when you make them up yourself. Try different color wraps, different style dresses, the possibilities are endless!
