About 2 years ago we teamed up with Barney’s New York to show you how to transform your favorite black dresses into the most coveted items in your closet. A basic black dress is a closet staple. You can style them for any occassion while staying comfortable and fashion-forward. Here’s how we wore them:

The Sophisticate: A floor length dress for an afternoon of shopping, paired with: structured ankle boots, a textured blazer, an oversized hobo purse, delicate vintage-inspired jewelry and a cool crown braid bun.

The Ingénue: The fitted mini for the art gallery, paired with: sophisticated riding boots, layered dainty necklaces and an artichtectural clutch.

The Magnate: The sleek v-neck for the power lunch, paired with: statement pumps, modern specs, a killer cuff and a clean bun.

The Coquette: Featuring the flirty mini for the first date, paired with: statement necklace, sexy heels and a kitschy clutch.

Which look is your favorite?
