A black dress is a wardrobe staple. Every one of us at some point has a black dress in our closet that we wear for interviews, funerals or on dates. Black is a color with which you just cannot go wrong. But sometimes, you might feel that too much black can be quite overwhelming. To overcome this, you might want to accessorize your black dress to bring a new dimension to your look.


If you have an hour-glass figure or just want to emphasize on your waist, you might want to complement your black skater dress with a belt at the waist. The belt could be in a contrasting color such as a deep red, turquoise or even yellow.


For shoes you might opt for ankle boots or high stilettos. The boots could be in a dark grey color if you want to stay in the dark palette and if you prefer heels, you might choose colors such as red, orange, yellow or white, depending on the look that you are going for. Black heels also work wonders if you are going for the classic all-black look.


If you are going for a red-black combination for example, you might want to choose jewelries of the same color, which is red in this case. Another jewelry combination that works well with black if you are going for an all-black look is silver. You could pair your black dress with a silver necklace or silver and black earrings.
