Whenever I’m invited to a prom, the first thing that comes to mind is a black floor-length dress. I think that says a lot about how elegant and classy it looks. Although black floor length dresses are designed for formal occasions and proms most of the time, there are some that are designed for casual wear. In this blog post, I’m going to cover both formal and casual dresses. In fact, I’ve gathered some of the better looking floor length black outfit ideas and put them on an interesting list. Now let’s look at the list.
Black spaghetti strap sweetheart floor length dress
Here is a very classic black floor length dress. It’s a dress with a sweetheart neckline and spaghetti straps that looks so simple and yet classy. Although your shoes would rarely show up, don’t be lazy and wear ugly shoes as there are also chances that the shoes will show up while walking. The best shoes would be silver ankle straps with open toes.
Black floor-length chiffon dress with a deep V-neckline and silver straps
For an outfit with lots of nice details, you should wear this sexy black dress. It’s a deep V-neck chiffon flare dress. Not only does the deep V-neck make you look extremely sexy, the silver sequin straps also make you look more elegant. Pair this dress with silver heels to complete this amazing look.
Black, semi-transparent mermaid dress
The floor-length dress made of black mermaid lace is an absolute eye-catcher. You really don’t have to wear accessories for a dress that can easily grab people’s attention like this one. Wear silver heels and you are ready to shine in a prom.
Black floor-length sequin dress
For those of you who are fans of shiny dresses, this floor length black sequin dress is for you. Silver heels would fit nicely. To make the outfit more elegant, wear a pair of black sequin heels to add gloss to the already shiny outfit.
Black floor-length dress in a boho style with a loose fit
Now that you’ve talked about some formal prom dresses, let’s talk about a black floor length dress that you can wear on the street as part of a casual outfit. Here we have an airy black, loose fitting dress. A great way to style it is to build a boho style outfit around the dress. Wear a couple of boho style bracelets and nude boho strappy sandals to make this outfit look amazing.
Deep split chiffon dress with deep V-neckline
For an extremely sexy outfit, there is a deep chiffon dress with a deep V-neck. Wear black heels to complete the look. It’s pretty obvious that this outfit is very difficult to take off. You have to be in great shape to do this dress justice. If you are not into sports, imagine wearing this dress beautifully and using it as a motivation to stay healthy and in shape.
Black floor-length bodycon dress with lace sleeves
For a slightly more mature look, you can wear a floor-length black bodycon dress with lace sleeves. Wear black heels to complete this low-key sexy outfit.
Long-sleeved dress with a deep V-neckline and A-line
This is another sexy dress, but this time it also has a lot of beautiful details that can make you look elegant too. It’s a black deep v-neck dress. Note the lovely detail in the subtle black belt that can make you look slimmer and taller. The best shoes would be black heels with an open toe strap.
Black Lace Bodycon Mermaid Floor Length Dress
This subtly sexy dress is a bodycon mermaid dress made of black lace that features some semi-sheer lace elements in the upper part of the dress. A great advantage of wearing a mermaid dress is that you don’t have to have really slim and long legs to wear it beautifully. To complete this outfit, wear silver open toe heels for a chic look.
Two-piece coat maxi dress
Here is a beautiful two-piece floor-length cotton shift dress. It’s not exactly a two-piece dress, technically, as the top and bottom are secured with a semi-sheer piece of mesh that subtly shows off your waistline. The dress also has a slit. Wear black open-toed straps to look your best.
Black two-tone asymmetrical floor-length dress
This black floor length dress has a very creative two-tone and asymmetrical design. It’s a dress with one shoulder. Half of the dress is made of lace and half of chiffon. It also has a sleek, high-split cut. Wear black open toe heels to complete your outfit with elegance.
Black long-sleeved sequin and chiffon dress
Here is another two-tone dress. This time it is a very elegant black floor length dress, with the top being a sequin top and the bottom being a chiffon tulle skirt. Wear black sequin heels that go perfectly with this dress. This is one of those outfits that will make you stand out from the crowd at a cocktail party or prom without having to show skin.
Black bodycon high split backless dress
This black, figure-hugging high-split dress looks pretty sexy from the front. But if you look from the back you will find that this is actually a super sexy backless dress. You can simply wear this dress with black ankle strap heels to complete this stunning outfit.
Black Backless Coat Fishtail Floor Length Dress
Although this dress looks more casual because it is made of cotton and has a loose fit, the backless design makes this dress such a sexy dress that is perfect for an outdoor photo shoot. Wear it with boho style nude heeled sandals to achieve this amazing and airy look.
So here are the black floor length clothing outfit ideas that I really want to share with you. Hope the list at least gives you some ideas on how to wear it to your next prom.
