Welcome back to 23 Days of Spring Fashion! Today I’m styling a casual black dress outfit for spring.
Old Navy Rib-Knit Button-Front Shift Dress // Dolce Vita Izabel Studded Sandals // Vince Camuto Jean Jacket // Rebecca Minkoff Megan Hobo (25% off) // Gucci sunglasses (option) // Kendra Scott hoops // Lucky Brand bracelet // similar pendant
I found this button-up ribbed shift dress at Old Navy, and I liked it so much, I ordered it in the olive and black. It’s currently marked down to $24, with an additional 25% off at checkout, which brings it down to $18!
This dress has a flattering silhouette, and I appreciate that it’s not cut too low in the neckline and around the arm openings. The ribbed fabric and button-front details add some nice texture and dimension to the look.
It’s also a nice length. At least, it works for me at 5’5″. This dress runs true to size (I’m wearing the small) and it also comes in tall and petite sizes.
You could wear this dress with just about any casual shoe — sneaker, sandal, ballet flat… whatever you like! For this look, I wore these Dolce Vita Izabel Studded Sandals.
I absolutely love these sandals. I think they’re so cute with the strappy design and flat silver studs, and the Cafe color matches my skin tone so well.
As you can see, these sandals a little big for me, in that they stand up a bit on the top of the foot, but that’s because I have very flat feet. I actually recommend sizing up half for length.
And while they are a bit roomy on my foot, I wore this outfit home from our photo shoot yesterday, and I was able to walk in them just fine.
Because the sandals have silver studs, I wore silver accessories. These Kendra Scott hoops are lightweight, and make nice everyday earrings because they aren’t large, but they’re big enough to catch your attention.
In addition to that, I wore my diamond pendant to fill the neckline and added a Lucky Brand hammered silver cuff bracelet. And of course, my oversized black cat eye sunglasses are the perfect finishing touch.
I carried a black leather hobo — you’ve seen this bag before. I’m finding myself reaching for it a lot lately, pretty much whenever I need a medium-sized black bag. I love that it has black hardware, so it isn’t distracting from any of the metals in my jewelry.
It has a nice size slip pocket on the outside that should hold most smartphones, but my iPhone Pro Max doesn’t quite fit with the case on. Fortunately, it easily fits into the one on the inside. This bag also happens to be 25% off right now!
To complete this casual black dress outfit for spring, I threw my favorite denim jacket on top. It’s also 25% off right now! (I take the small.)
I don’t know why, but the button-up jacket over a button-up dress looks a little weird to me, but I guess I’m overthinking it. You could also wear a cardigan, of course, but I prefer the structure a denim jacket provides.
I came *this close* to wearing my black studded slides with this look, and while I do love these nude studded strappy slides, I feel like I might prefer black sandals to bookend the look. You could also add a pop of color, dress it down with fashion sneakers. So many options!
What do you think? Which shoes would you wear with this?
If you’re lookin gto get to that $50 free-shipping threshold, this tie dye midi dress and this waist-defined shirt dress are really good too. Both are $18 today! And don’t forget that tie dye sweatshirt dress I styled a couple weeks ago. If you didn’t grab it then, it comes down to $26 in cart.
