The Most Casual Yet Versatile Dress For Winter…The Black Midi Dress

Hands Down The Most Versatile Dress For Winter…

One of My Favorite Winter Staples – The Black Midi Dress!

I love a black midi dress, especially during the winter. They’re chic and functional. You look put together but are still very comfortable and casual. If you don’t already have a staple midi dress, it’s time to get one! And I have the perfect option for you…

Casual Black Midi Dress

This dress is by one of my favorite designers, Norma Kamali. All of her styles are made with high-quality fabric… they are stylish, and always have a modern touch. This dress is perfect for the holidays. It’s a great, lightweight quality jersey material so it’s nice for all of you who live in warmer climates where a sweater dress may be too thick of an option. If you live in a cooler climate, you can see how I styled the midi dress with a coat below. The fabric is also perfect for travel because it won’t wrinkle! Who else hates ironing!? It’s the worst. The long sleeves and hemline of this dress also help with keeping you warm.

The dress is also fitted… and that makes it pretty sexy! I wore this dress to dinner three times while we were traveling through Texas over Thanksgiving. It’s just so easy to pull out and wear and feel sophisticated, elegant and still covered. In these pictures, we are at Cibolo Creek Ranch near Marfa, Texas where Chris and I got married.

How I Dressed Up This Casual Midi Dress

I paired the black turtleneck midi dress with my favorite brown boots for our trip to West Texas. These boots are by Vince Camuto and you can see another way I styled them in this post. And remember this gorgeous suede coat from the Nordstrom sale? This coat is by Avec Les Filles is SO luxe and beautiful! Every time I wear it, I feel special.

  1. Hi again, erin
    Just a quick , “You’re still the best!
    Thinking of topics we women wrestle with and would love a detailed video of best bras and undergarments for large chested women. Especially in the days of implants, when our chest may be disproportionate with our waist and hips whether by choice or not. Please be sure to include best minimizing, yet comfort winners. I prefer skinny straps, but longline since I have fibromyalgia and pressure across my back is best tolerated more dispersed than a more narrow strap of scratchy ELASTIC. Thank you for all you do !

  2. Amazing look. I love black and brown together. You look gorgeous. if this comes out in all caps I apologize. I can’t seem to turn on caps lock in this window. Happy new year

  3. Hi Erin,
    I am subscribed to your newsletter but I can’t find the basics checklist that I would have gotten when i first signed up, probably 2 years ago. If it isn’t on the blog, could you please resend it to me? I am thinking about doing a closet cleanout this weekend and i think it would be helpful to have it. Thanks!
