Another great way to make your black dress stand out is to layer it with different textures and fabrics.

Think blazers, leather jackets, and shawls – all these elements will help break up the monotony of having an entirely black ensemble.

You can also use shoes as a great way to bring color into your look without taking away from the overall sophistication and power of your dress.

A bright pair of pumps or ankle boots can really turn heads!
