Hi friends!

Spring is just around the corner, which means it’s the perfect time to stock up on casual dresses for when the sun comes out to play again!

I lean towards neutrals because they never go out of style! Neutrals are great for mixing + matching with patterns and bold colors. I love pairing neutrals with florals, stripes, and pastels in the springtime!

Black dresses are staple pieces, you can never have enough of them!

That being said, it can be difficult to find the perfect black dress to have as a staple in your closet. Considering fit, material, length, and price I have never found the perfect black dress for me (spoiler alert: until now).

Cleo Madison was kind enough to send me their Stella Peplum Dress! When I opened the package I was immediately impressed by how soft + stretchy the material is! Looks and feels high quality.

The sizing was true to size (I’m pictured in a small). It is a loose +flowy dress so it’s an easy option to throw on when you want to look cute and still feel comfortable. The subtle peplum style adds some shape + structure to the dress while making it more than your average basic dress. Let the dress do the work for you!

The best part about this dress is how versatile it is. Wear it all seasons- layered under an oversized cardigan in the fall and winter months, pair it with a lightweight jacket in the spring, & wear it by itself during the summer!

Accessorizing couldn’t be easier with this dress. It matches everything- go bold with statement jewelry, keep it simple with your favorite pair of sandals or ankle boots, or toss on patterned pieces!

I couldn’t be happier about finding my perfect black dress to wear all year long!

The dress retails for $34 and ships free. It is also available in light grey + navy.

Scroll to see 3 different ways that I’ve styled the dress!
