As a fan of the strappy sandals, I notice that the decorative straps can really make the outfit more elegant. So I figured, what if the straps are part of the dress and not part of the shoes? Of course there is such an item and it is the black strappy dress. While doing research to compile this list of the best black strappy dresses, I found that there are so few pictures and discussions about the strappy dress. I took a little extra time to finish this blog post and I hope this is something good and, most importantly, useful for you.
Black, figure-hugging midi dress with strappy shoulders
In contrast to the strappy shoes, a strappy dress can be designed even more creatively, as there are many options for placing the decorative straps. To start the list, I’m going to give you a little surprise by showing you this more unique black body hugging midi dress with the straps near the shoulder area. To style a dress that looks so eye-catching on its own, you can simply wear it with a pair of black heels and a black handbag.
Asymmetrical strapless black strappy dress
This black dress is a really stylish bodycon dress. It uses a tricky strap design to create an asymmetrical cut that makes the section around the two shoulders look different. For the shoes you can either wear plain black heels or black strappy sandals.
Black strappy dress with an open back
This is a sexy black open back and flare dress. An open back cut is often done in the form of a cruciate ligament design, as shown in the picture. That would look more elegant than an open design with no straps. This outfit also offers a good selection of shoes that go perfectly with the dress. It’s a pair of open-toe strappy ankle boots.
Black cutout bodycon knee length dress
Depending on how you see it, this dress can be called a strappy dress or a cut out dress. As long as it looks good, it doesn’t matter what you call it. You can easily style this black body hugging dress by wearing it with black suede ankle strap heels. You should have a minimalist yet amazing looking outfit.
Black backless strappy skater dress
A black skater dress is usually a good choice for a cocktail party, especially if you want to look younger and more energetic. This black backless strappy skater dress is not only cute but also very sexy. The back is barely covered by some sparsely spaced straps to expose your beautiful back. This becomes a stunning outfit if you don’t mind showing off some skin.
Black, strap-shaped, figure-hugging dress with an open back
Compared to the dress in the previous outfit, this black figure-hugging open-back dress has some wider straps to cover the back. This outfit is more feminine and mature.
Bodycon dress with turtleneck and strappy sides
If you put the turtleneck and a bodycon dress together, it would already be a very unique and elegant looking dress. This dress even went a step further by adding a strappy neckline for the sides of the dress under the armpit area. Instead of the typical choice of wearing black heels, pink heels are chosen to make this outfit even more eye-catching.
Black skater dress with additional straps on the shoulders
Compared to some of the strappy dresses mentioned, this black skater dress has a more understated strappy design. It simply has two additional decorative straps that match the two functional straps on the shoulders. With a refreshing and natural looking dress like this one, I would recommend that you wear it with black ballet flats and a subtle silver necklace to keep the look minimal and beautiful.
Black strappy skater dress with V-neck
This black strappy skater dress is very similar to the previous one, but has a small V-neck design and a slightly looser cut to make the dress look more causal and airy. This dress works best as part of a casual street outfit. You can just wear it with white sneakers and that should make you stand out from the crowd. You can also pull a denim jacket over your shoulders for a super chic, casual look.
Black strappy dress with deep V-neckline and blazer
If you dress sexy, you can still dress. For example, wear a black dress with a deep V-neck that has a strappy pattern in the V-neck area. Drape a black blazer over your shoulders to express some power and aggressiveness. A pair of leggings and black strappy heels are a nice complement to this look.
Black shift dress with a cross back and low back
This simple cross-strap design on the back of the black shift dress is a good demonstration of “less is more”. It’s basically a plain shift dress with a little twist. And this time around, the little twist really takes the outfit to another level. Keep the outfit minimal by wearing black heels.
Deep, figure-hugging black bodycon dress with a choker
I’m not sure when the black choker trend dress started, but I really like the way it looks. As an example of an outfit that consists of a black dress and a choker, this outfit consists of a black bodycon dress with a deep V-neckline and a gold choker. As an alternative, a black choker is a good choice, which usually looks great on most black dresses.
Black strappy maxi chiffon dress
For an elegant and airy look, you can wear a black maxi chiffon dress with a deep V-neckline. This dress is sexy too and has a backless strappy design. Wear golden heels very creatively to add a touch of elegance to the already stunning outfit.
Black, figure-hugging dress with a butterfly-shaped cut
For a glamorous look, this is just a cute bodycon dress with a butterfly cut in the front. Black ballerina shoes are a wonderful choice to complete this minimal ensemble.
Cross Strap Deep V Skater Black Skater Dress
For a restrained sexy and young look, you can choose a black skater dress with a deep V-neckline that has a creative cross-strap design on the collar. I would recommend that you wear black open toe ankle straps. For more outfit ideas for similar shoes, check out your blog post on wearing ankle strap heels.
