A black maxi dress= your new Summer best friend. Although fashion magazines, your Mum and apparently the whole bloomin’ internet seem to disagree. **Puts on Regina George voice** ‘duh… black is for Winter.’
Sorry to break it to you love, but this popular colour, or should I say lack of, is totally Summer appropriate. Just make it a black maxi dress and add funky details such as a semi-sheer skirt or cute buttons and it’s as playful and cute as a floral, lace-y, sun dress (without the twee!)
For the two years that The Daily Luxe has been in this world, I have always posted bi-weekly. Before I get out my mini violin and play some sort of woe-is-me-I’m-such-a-bad-blogger symphony, let me explain. I have landed myself a full time career job in social media marketing and content writing. **The one person reading this applauds**. As time seems to be ticking away like I’m the little white rabbit in Alice In Wonderland, I found myself in a bit of a hiccup. I could A; write 2 blah posts a week, or B; write one kick-ass piece of content I knew you’d enjoy! Blowing of own trumpets aside, I went with the latter. So set your alarms for Tuesday, as it’s the day of the tropical luxe!
Enough of the murmurings of my fuzzy brain… let’s talk about the unwritten rule that black dresses and Summer are a huge no! **fingers snaps** black is totally year-round appropriate; it all depends on a few factors: the fabric, the cut and the details.
Although June is not made for sweating up a storm in long-sleeve, black knitwear, maxi dresses can be totally appropriate. The black maxi dress itself is a Summer staple and I think that the sheer, fishtail detail and cute buttons on this Stevie May Dress make it super duper suitable for Summer!
Stevie May is a brand that is bohemian at heart, so I can only trust that this dress would absolutely ooze wanderlust-y, boho-y goodness. I paired it with a red, velvet choker to give it a slightly 90s vibe. You can just call me Courtney Love Luxe.
This has to be the most sarcastic post I’ve written in a while…maybe it’s the stress, maybe it’s the fact its 10PM, or maybe it’s just cos I need to be double as sarcastic now I’m only writing one post 😉
And with that, my lovelies, I shall leave you with a this quirky black maxi dresses to drool over…
