Day to Date: The Black Midi Dress

When it comes to exploring new cities during the day, flats are key to saving your feet (and your sanity). But come night, it’s always fun to dress up for a stylish night on the town. Here, a versatile black midi dress goes from day to night with the help of a few accessories.

The Black Midi Dress: During the Day


The great thing about midi dresses, especially this black midi dress is the effortless sleek look it gives off, no matter how casual the look. Because I am constantly running around the hills of San Francisco, I tend to stick to sandals during the day. I love the ones I’m wearing here because the leather makes them a bit dressier making it ok to take these babies out to a lunch date. You can switch up the accessories as you’d like but with mid-length dresses, I like to pair long chains or necklaces. And lastly, I threw on this simple leather jacket because it really complements my shoes and also helps me stay warm.

The Black Midi Dress: Out on a Date

Come night time and come my favorite Alexander Wang shoes out to play. Here I got a little dressy with my black midi dress. I added a tailored double-breasted blazer and a statement necklace. You can also add a cropped blazer or a regular one, but I would suggest adding one with color, especially if you’re wearing it with a black midi dress. This clutch, which you may have seen before is my favorite – I made it myself by adding peacock feathers to a plain black clutch.

So there you have it. There is so much you can do with midi dresses. Just throw in a change of shoes and accessories in your bag or car and you can spend the day AND night in one black midi dress.
