I’ve been in the process of cleaning out my closet these past few weeks. That means I’m trying to do as little shopping as possible until that task is complete.  However, I couldn’t resist adding this black midi dress to my shopping cart when I was browsing through the Asos website a few weeks ago.  I love pieces that are easy to style and comfortable, and this dress is definitely both.

There are so many things that I adore about this simple dress. To start, the ties on the shoulder add such a fun detail. You can either accessorize this dress if you want, or just let the shoulder ties be the focal point. I also really love the ribbed jersey material.  If you’ve been keeping up with this blog ever since I started it a few years ago, you probably remember my jersey phase pretty well; this is just one example of one of the jersey pieces in my wardrobe that was constantly on repeat. The reason I gravitate towards jersey fabric is that it can just be so darn comfortable and flattering.

Regarding fit, I’m only 5’4″, so this black midi dress fit more like a maxi. Therefore, I had to hem it a couple of inches in order for it to fit right below my knee. Since this is jersey fabric, it can be a little tough to cut. Therefore, I’d recommend for you to take it to your local tailor if you don’t feel too comfortable with a needle and scissors. 

I would say that you should definitely expect this dress to be on heavy rotation this summer. I’m also really looking forward to finding other easy-to-style pieces to wear this season. What are some of your favorite go-to items for an easy summer look?

      Ashley, if you haven’t already purchased it, yes, I would say it’s true to size. I got my usual size and it’s not tight or anything, but it does hug your curves. 😀
