The prettiest little black summer dresses for your cutest Summer looks

Black summer dresses for 2024 range from sheer to embellished, cap sleev to off the shoulder to strappy. The humble little black Summer dress often gets forgotten as white dresses and colorful prints take center stage but they can be a chic addition to your Summer wardrobe. Summery black dresses are also easy to dress up or down with flats or heels. As well as working into your Summer to Fall wardrobe as a transitional season piece, just add a blazer or light jacket and boots or pumps. These are some the cutest black summer dresses for 2024 that I’ve found this year from maxi’s to black strappy summer dresses. A lot of them are already on sale too!

Black summer mini dress

This Michael Costello black strappy summer dress is super lightweight, doesn’t need ironing and has adjustable straps. I love the girly tiered skirt detailing and cut out detail at the front. It’s on trend but still classic enough to wear year after year and it’s also now on sale for under $100!

Off the shoulder black mini dress

This is one of my newest mini little black summer dresses. I love off the shoulder mini dresses for a more feminine look and this one by Lovers + Friends has the cutest little button details on the front and a super flattering nipped in waist. Don’t worry, it’s elasticized so it’er perfect for eating and drinking in.

Best strapless black summer dress

If you’re looking for a super lightweight strapless black summer dress, this one by Krisa is another one I wore on repeat and it’s on sale. It didn’t need ironing and stayed up without me tugging at it all day. I loved it so much I also ordered a very similar black romper.

For a look that will work for Summer going into Fall, a thicker material like the tweed dress below works perfectly. Plus it doesn’t need ironing. The crystal and pearl buttons also make it look more expensive than it is.

How to style black summer dresses in 2024

The beauty of black summer dresses is that it’s such a versatile color. You can create monochromatic looks with the same color shoes and bag, wear it with nude strappy sandals, or slides for the day, add a pop of color with your accessories or add a blazer and boots or pumps for Fall.

For the Winter or colder days, layer them over tights and a roll neck sweater and under a jacket.

For the evening just add heels, accessories and your favorite bag.
