As a fan of the strappy sandals, I find that the decorative straps can really make the outfit more elegant. So I was like, 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. When I did my research to compile this list of the best strappy black dresses, I found that there are so few pictures and discussions about the strappy dress. I took a little more time to finish this blog post and I hope that this is something good and useful for you.
Black bodycon midi dress with strappy shoulders
In contrast to the strappy shoes, a strappy dress can be designed even more creatively, as there are many ways to place the decorative straps. To start the list, I’m going to surprise you a bit by showing you this more unique black bodycon midi dress with the straps near the shoulder area. To style a dress that looks so striking on its own, you can simply wear it with a pair of black heels and a black handbag.
Asymmetric 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 dress with an open back and flare. An open back cut often takes the form of a cruciate tie design, as shown in the image. This would look more elegant than an open strapless design. This outfit also features a good selection of shoes that go perfectly with the dress. It is a pair of strappy open toe ankle boots.
Black Bodycon Knee Length Bodycon Dress
Depending on how you look at it, this dress can be called a strappy dress or a low-cut 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 minimalistic but awesome looking outfit.
Black backless strappy skater dress
A black skater dress is usually a great 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 sparse straps to reveal your beautiful back. This makes for a stunning outfit if you don’t mind showing some skin.
Black strappy open back bodycon dress
Compared to the dress from the previous outfit, this black open back bodycon dress has some wider straps to cover the back. This outfit is more feminine and mature.
Bodycon dress with turtleneck and strappy sides
When you put together the turtleneck and a bodycon dress, this is already a very unique and elegant looking dress. This dress went even a step further by adding a strappy neckline for the sides of the dress below 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 subtle 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, I would recommend wearing it with black ballet flats and a subtle silver necklace to keep the look minimal and beautiful.
Black Strappy V-Neck Skater Dress
This strappy black skater dress is very similar to the previous one, but with a small V-neckline and a slightly loose fit to make the dress look more causal and airy. This dress is best paired with 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.
Strappy black dress with a deep V-neckline and blazer
If you dress sexy, you can still dress. For example, wear a black dress with a deep V-neckline that features a strappy pattern in the V-neckline area. Drape a black blazer over your shoulders to express some power and aggressiveness. Leggings and black strappy heeled sandals are a nice complement to this look.
Black shift dress with 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 simple shift dress with a little twist. And this time, the little twist really takes the outfit to another level. Keep the outfit minimal by wearing black heels.
Plunging bodycon black choker bodycon dress
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 choker, this outfit consists of a black bodycon dress with a deep V-neck and a gold choker. As an alternative, a black choker is a good choice that usually looks good on most black dresses.
Black strappy maxi chiffon dress
For an elegant and breezy look, you can wear a black maxi chiffon dress with a deep V-neckline. This dress is also sexy and features a strapless backless design. Wear gold heels very creatively to add a touch of elegance to the already stunning outfit.
Black bodycon dress with a butterfly cut
For a glam 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 an understated sexy and young look, you can choose a deep V-neck black skater dress that has a creative cross strap design at the collar. I would recommend that you wear black ankle straps with open toes. For more outfit ideas for similar shoes, check out her blog post on wearing ankle strap heels.
