Classic, Black Dresses Perfect for Any Formal Occasion

Trends come and go and change with the seasons, so you never know when a prom or pageant dress that is considered super stylish one season, might be totally lame the next. If you’re looking for a formal dress that will withstand the test of time, then there is one type that will never fail you: the black dress. Whether it’s little or long, the black formal dress is a chic and essential edition to any woman’s wardrobe because it can work for any formal occasion and you can keep one forever because it will never go out of style!

We’ve chosen some of our favorite sleek, black formal dresses that we think would work for any sort of party, prom, pageant, or other social occasion. You can shop all of these dresses on the Whatchamacallit website! Check out our picks below:

Tarik Ediz #50487

Glamour and elegance don’t always have to be so over-the-top. This figure-flattering, fitted, black gown is classically-beautiful on its own, and the addition of the crystal-embellished bustier peaking out of the top of the dress only serves to add even more chicness and elegance to this incredible gown in a subtle way!

Lovely and lace-y, this fitted, black, formal gown has such a romantic vibe with its all-over lace, sheer, high neckline, and side leg slit! This dress would be perfect for any black tie event where you have to look super luxurious. Pair this formal gown with pearls for even more classiness!

La Femme #27584

This dress pairs sleek simplicity with an unexpected twist: the skirt becomes sheer above the knee!

The sheerness of the skirt paired with the lace and black color make this formal dress the perfect combination of classic and daring!
