Every girl knows the importance of a little black dress. Having one on hand for surprise dates and impromptu dinners is a necessity. Black dresses come in all sorts of silhouettes and styles that are perfect for any occasion. Ellie Wilde has put a few twists on the classic black dress and we are loving it! Style EW118138 is one of our favorite black dresses of the collection; but, it migh not be described as a “little” black dress, this gown is super dramatic! Firstly, it is a two-piece with scalloped lace where the top and bottom meet. The mikado fabric has small stones placed along the lace, and the sweetheart neckline is made to fall off the shoulders. The true drama occurs at the flare of the skirt. The mermaid fit curves out just above the knee into a tulle, handkerchief cut skirt. The layers ruffle to the ground and form a stunning amount of volume. If you’re searching for a showstopper, look no further than this gown. Style EW118134 is a bit more understated, but equally glamorous. This gown is a classic sleek fit with a round cut neckline. The under-layer is nude, and black mesh covers the entire gown. Intricate embroidery covers the mesh overlay and is dotted with crystals. The illusion back may be our favorite part of this dress; it is also covered in beautiful black embroidery! Our last pick is EW118133. It maintains the classic look while keeping up with the current trends. This gown is a mermaid fit with a deep V halter neckline. The entire gown is covered in gorgeous black sequins- one of the top trends this year! The bottom of this dress is definitely the best part; pink and green embroidered flowers stretch across the hem and up the skirt. This stunning gown is classic with a fresh twist!
