OMG, so obsessed with this chic black frill dress!

We love when one dress can pretty much do it all, and that perfectly describes this black frill dress from SHEIN. This dress is ready for a date downtown or a late summer wedding, but we could totally see it at a work dinner, family event, or really any event in between!

Those shapely half sleeves paired with a fitted bodice create a striking silhouette with any body type, and we adore the petite ruffle at the waistline. The delicate frills and flowing touches along with the midi length make this dress a great choice for both daytime and evening events, and the layered look is breezy and comfortable even for hot days.

This model paired the look with patent leather heels and a matching bag with gold accents that complement her gold jewelry. The simplicity of the leather accessories allows the jewelry to take center stage, and her layered necklaces feature round pendants that fit the circular motif of her large gemstone earrings. And, we love how the earrings use squarish cuts like emerald and Asscher to produce round shapes!

While the styling is top-notch, this dress would look amazing with bright heels for a pop of eye-catching color, particularly pink or red. Or, for a more subtle look, nude wedges or pumps would be an ideal fit for a wedding or formal event. A cute bag with flair could also bring a hint of extra personality to the overall look, and we think this emerald-toned Betsey Johnson bag would be adorable!

 For a more casual appeal, a name necklace or monogram could easily bring this dress to “everyday chic” status, and a bar necklace would also offer a casual look with subtle personalization. Or, for a more formal event, try drop earrings that draw attention to your face like this Tiffany & Co. Diamonds by the Yard design. Something a little chunkier would look wonderful as well, and we love the chain inspiration these earrings are giving us.

A black dress like this is the ideal blank canvas, so you really can’t go wrong with whatever accessories you choose. Get creative and keep mixing and matching different accessories, and we guarantee this one dress could get you through an entire year of special events!
