Having a black dress in your closet is a must-have for any woman. A little black dress makes you look and feel chic, sophisticated, and stylish. Sometimes, finding a little black dress as a woman over 40 can be difficult. Is it too sexy, too matronly, and how do I style it? I’ve found the perfect black dress that’s age-appropriate without being frumpy and that’s easy to style…even into fall!
Black Midi Dress
This black dress by Rotate is stunning! It has a very subtle, small scale print that’s really pretty and sophisticated. The cinched waist is super flattering. If you missed my video on how to hide a tummy, watch that here. The slit on the leg adds a touch of sexy ala Angelina Jolie… and it contrasts with the coverage from the long sleeves. The length is great…I’m 5’4” and it hits just below my calf.
I styled the dress with a Valentino belt to really define my waist. And a pair of nude Vince Camuto mules.
How to Wear This Dress in the Fall
This is one of those dresses that will transition perfectly into fall! The long sleeves will keep you warm or you can throw a cool moto jacket or blazer over your shoulders. For shoes, you can try some sleek booties or a pair of knee-high boots like I did in this post.
