Flattering Black Ruched Dress

March 9, 2020

If you caught my Instagram stories recently then you know my love for this flattering black ruched dress! I have it in the grey long sleeve version and have owned it for 4 years! I wore it all through my first pregnancy and beyond. When I saw this black short sleeved version was on sale, and I immediately hit purchase. You can see they grey one styled on the blog here, here, and here. See, told you I love it!

Dress Details

Here as well in previous posts I am wearing a medium. This is primarily for the bump and length. It’s totally up to you what size you order. If you prefer it tighter, then order your usual. Looser then size up.

How to Wear a Black Ruched Dress

As you can see from the first photo, this flattering black ruched dress is super versatile! I wanted to show you a couple of ways to style it. While in San Diego, I wore it for the morning to get coffee and donuts with my jean jacket and Golden Goose sneakers. It was the perfect easy outfit!!

    This is a flattering dress on you! Love the rusched style with sneakers! I have a few friends that have this dress and sing its praises. I am 5 9 and wear a size 4 in dresses, – but the main thing is length. I wonder if a small would be too short?
    Have a great day!

    This is such a great dress for everyone! I’m tempted to get the black. I really love it with your sneakers and denim jacket. So glad you all had a fun trip despite a few hiccups along the way!
