14 Stunning Black Dresses for Every Type of Teen

Black dresses go with everything.

Whether you're struggling to decide what to wear on a date, to homecoming or on a girls' night out, a little black dress is a versatile staple that will never let you down. You can pair them with everything from vintage boots to everyday sneakers, colorful sunnies, a sequin bag, a leather coat and even your favorite hat. A black dress (or several) is essential to every wardrobe, and it can be worn year-round.

So, we've rounded up a few fabulous options to help you find the perfect one for you. Let's take a look.

Just because it's spring doesn't mean you have to spend every day in a brightly patterned dress. Don't forget that black dresses are perfect for any occasion, any time of the year. This bodycon dress has a modest one-shoulder design with a slinky style and ruched sides for a sleek and sophisticated look.

Nasty Gal Petite Lace Lace Slip Satin Mini Dress: $33

This dress has an extra touch of detail thanks to its lace components. It has a looser silhouette than most slip dresses, plus a keyhole in the middle. It's a bold take on the classic mini dress that can easily be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.

This off-the-shoulder dress is anything but average. The extra detail of its long sleeves with thumb holes makes it so much bolder and more eccentric than other off-the-shoulder options. Basically, you need this bodycon.
