You'd think that a black dress was best suited for a wedding reception or movie premiere and we couldn't agree. But the LBD is a lot more versatile than that because it's possible to be worn casually too. Don't believe us? Look no further than Disha Patani.
For an afternoon out, the Bollywood actress sported a black dress with minimal accessories and pulled it off breezily. So if you're looking to get more wear out of your black dresses for a casual occasion, follow these styling tricks as seen on Disha.
1. Pick The Right Dress
For a casual function, we'd recommend skipping the velvet fabrics and bodycon fits. Instead, choose a dress that's more relaxed in terms of style and silhouette like what Disha is wearing, to best complement the accessories paired with it.
