Ministry of Style Eternal Maxi Dress

$180 at the time of publication

This gorgeous dress features a skinny choker collar, spaghetti straps, and a lace overlay. It’s witchy, and wonderful! A lot of black pieces are hot and better to wear in winter, but the straps and light, breezy material make this one perfect for summer!

If you do want to wear it in the fall or winter, try a leather or velvet bomber jacket for warmth. This piece looks great with gladiator sandals, chelsea boots, or platform sandals. Wear to outdoor galas or parties!

Floral Embroidered Gown

 $72 at the time of publication

The applique on this gown is absolutely stunning and contrasts really nicely with the burgundy. It has a wonderful mermaid fit that will flatter your curves, and the plunging neckline is great for jewelry.

This piece has a very regal aesthetic, so we’re not saying to wear a crown (but props if you do!) but decorative hair pins or a headband would really take it to the next level! This is definitely a dress for heels- pale gold that match the applique look very classy.

Soieblu Floral Applique Gown

 $68 at the time of publication

This gown is relatively simple, but still gorgeous! The A-line fit is flattering on just about everyone, and the embroidered high neck means you don’t even need a necklace!

This is another very regal option, but in a cool color if that’s more your thing. Wear your hair up with this one so you can show off the elaborate floral embroidery.
