Ideal Black Dresses for the Durban July

With a few weeks to go until Durban’s favourite horse racing event and still not sure what to wear to this year’s theme, ‘Leader of the Pack’ then this is the blog for you ! For the love of black dresses, here is a list of our ideal black dresses for this year’s Durban July.


Crossover/wrap style 

This dress style has a very flattering neckline and suits all body shapes. Often keeping your lines more simple makes for a very elegant look.

Bardot Style

This style of dress is timeless and sophisticated, thanks to the lady it was named after. Best suited to pear, rectangle and hourglass body shapes. To be avoided if you have a short neck.

Grace Kelly Fit & Flare

Another dress style named after a famous lady. This fit and flare style aims to accentuate your feminine waist. Especially effective on curvier body types. Accessorize the waist with a sash or belt for more pizzazz to your dress.

Bodycon with chiffon

Spice up a bodycon black dress with chiffon accents, either elegant sleeves or subtle ruching on the bodice part. Not only does this make a dress more interesting but also hides areas that we are not confident with.

Reverse Cowl neck

This style of black dress echos the open back trend with the cowl falling softly to accentuate your back. Dress up this sophisticated look with a chain to be the real ‘Leader of the Pack’.
