There is no need to explain the versatility and timelessness of a  simple black dress. This piece is a must-have, whether you prefer to dress casually or align your style with alternative fashion trends. Thanks to the simplicity of color (or its absence!) black dress can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. You can wear it to a formal event and accessorize it for a relaxed, casual look, such as a lunch date. 

However, in today's blog post, I wanted to concentrate on an alternative approach to this fashion piece. I believe everyone understands that it only takes a pair of white sneakers and a cropped denim jacket to get a laid-back vibe. Instead, I wanted to discover ways to style a simple black dress for an alternative fashion look. That sounds much more tempting and less conventional.

As an inspiration for today's fashion guide, I took some of the most popular and stylish icons like Wednesday Addams from the Addams Family, Nancy Downs from The Craft, Elena Gilbert from the Vampire Diaries, and a bunch of early 00s celebrities. After a few hours of research, I came up with some of the best ways to style your favorite little black dress to get an alternative vibe.

#1. Gothic Vibe

Let's start with my favorite – a romantic, but mysterious goth look. You can transform a simple black dress into a gothic ensemble with a few right styling choices. First, pick up a dress with a flowing silhouette. Consider adding a statement belt or a corset belt to your outfit. It will add some definition to the waist, emphasizing the curves. Look for belts with bold buckles or studded detailing to add a touch of edge. 

Next, layer on a few key pieces of jewelry to complete the goth look. A chunky necklace or choker will add a touch of darkness and drama, while a pair of statement earrings will draw attention to the face. Don't forget about the makeup! It is an important part of the gothic look.

When it comes to footwear, opt for a pair of knee-high boots to add a touch of gothic elegance. Look for boots with a pointed toe and a heel to elongate the legs. If you're feeling daring, try a pair of platform boots. For instance, Wednesday Addams wore a pair of Prada's Monolith shoes and Naked Wolfe platform sneakers. Both will be great options for your soft goth outfit.

#2. Punk Vibe

Punk fashion is all about attitude, rebellion, and pushing boundaries. Luckily, black dresses and punk fashion go hand in hand! There are numerous ways you can approach this fashion particular fashion vibe. So, for a punk-inspired outfit, pick an asymmetrical black dress with cutouts or large sequins. Add some edge to the look with a leather jacket, studded belt, and a pair of combat boots. Accessorize with a pair of ripped stockings or fishnet pantyhose. Vivienne Westwood has a stunning look, featuring a black dress and fishnets during one of her shows.

Accessorizing with chunky silver jewelry, such as studded bracelets or a chain necklace, can also add a touch of punk attitude. A bold, graphic t-shirt or a band tee worn underneath the dress can also add a cool, rock-and-roll vibe. Adding a studded belt or fishnet tights can also give the dress a more rebellious feel. To complete the look, try pairing the dress with a bold, dark lip color and a messy, textured hairstyle.

#3. Grunge Vibe

A floor-length spaghetti strap dress, worn over a tee and a pair of Dr. Martens is the essence of grunge fashion style. At least, in my head! If you want to style a black dress to get a grunge-inspired outfit, you can go for this look! You can also pair your black dress with some distressed denim or a leather jacket. Add some combat boots like Dr. Martens I already mentioned or Steve Madden.

Another way to style a black dress for grunge fashion is to layer it with a band t-shirt or a flannel shirt. This gives the dress a more relaxed and laid-back feel, and it makes it look like you've thrown it on over a more casual top. You can also add a pair of Converse or Vans sneakers to complete the look.

#4. Boho Vibe

Nobody wore bohemian style better than Phoebe Buffay from Friends! She had a few lovely boho-inspired outfits that feature black dresses. So, to style your black dress in this fashion, start by picking up the most comfortable dress made of cotton or linen. The boho-chic is all about comfort, nature, and freedom. Pair the dress with a pair of fringe boots or ankle boots. 

For the colder weather, layer a denim or suede jacket over the dress. A fringed bag or a woven tote bag would be a great accessory to complete the look. If you want to add some color, join a colorful scarf or pashmina to the ensemble. For jewelry, opt for chunky pieces such as a statement necklace or a pair of large hoop earrings. You can also add a pair of dangle earrings or a stack of bangles for a bohemian touch. remember to choose only accessories made of natural materials.

#5. Emo/Scene Vibe

Emo and scene fashion styles are all about expressing yourself, attracting attention, and standing out from the crowd. If you want to give your outfit an emo or scene makeover, you need to style a black dress in a unique and edgy way. First and foremost, layering is key to this look. This can be achieved by adding a denim or leather jacket, a cardigan, or even a hoodie over the dress. This not only adds a sense of depth and texture to the outfit but also allows for more versatility in terms of temperature and weather.

Don't be afraid to mix and match different textures and patterns, because the style of the emo/scene is to stand out. To complete the look, add a pop of color with dark, moody lipstick or hair dye. For example, deep purple or red lipstick would add a touch of drama to the overall look. Experiment with different hairstyles, such as a messy bun or a side-swept fringe, to add a touch of personal style.

#6. Steampunk Vibe

When it comes to steampunk fashion style, the first color that comes to mind is copper. Brownish, rusty shades of brown symbolize the appeal of steam pipes and other mechanical parts of machinery. However, black color is just as popular in the steampunk subculture. To begin styling your black dress, you'll want to focus on layering different textures and materials. Start with a basic black dress as the foundation, then add a corset or waist cincher to cinch in your waist and give you a more hourglass figure. Next, layer on a long, flowy skirt or a pair of trousers to add some volume to your steampunk look.

Accessories are a major part of steampunk style, so don't be afraid to add a few statement pieces to your ensemble. A pair of knee-high boots with buckles and straps will add a touch of an industrial vibe, while a top hat or a newsboy cap will give you a more Victorian-inspired look. Do you have an iconic pair of goggles? It is time to add them to your outfit!

#7. Vintage Vibe

Styling a simple black dress for a vintage-inspired look is one of the easiest tasks. The secret to an authentic look is the style of the dress. It can't be too short, instead, go for a mid to floor-length black dress. Select a fitted bodice silhouette with a full skirt or a pencil dress with a high neckline.

When it comes to vintage styling, accessories play a big role. The choice, of course, depends on the decade/era you want to recreate. You can cinch your waist with a statement belt and give it a 1940s touch. A pair of heeled shoes or vintage-style pumps will complete the look. Opt for a pair of pumps with a pointed toe and low heel, as this will give you a classic vintage look.

#8. Hipster Vibe

Do you still remember the hipster-style obsession? I feel like this was one of the least-lasting style phases of the 2010s...Hipster style is usually characterized by its unique and effortless vibe. It is often described as a mix of vintage, bohemian, vintage, and modern elements. Overall, it has an eclectic nature. The style is known for its use of bold patterns and colors, as well as its focus on comfort and practicality.

To dress like a hipster, consider adding a denim or leather jacket on top of the simple black dress. The style of the dress also matters! Pick one with a large white collar or high-waisted silhouette. Next, accessorize with statement pieces such as a chunky necklace or a bold belt. This will bring attention to the dress and add a touch of personality to the look. A pair of ankle boots or Converse sneakers will complete the hipster style, giving it a comfortable and casual feel.

There are so many Lolita-inspired subcategories out there, so how you are going to style a black dress on the style you are going for.

The e-girl style is the youngest subculture in today's list. It emerged from online gaming and internet communities. The main features of the style are bold, colorful hair and makeup, streetwear, and punk fashion elements. Clothing often includes oversized sweaters, graphic tees, and ripped denim. To style a black dress in an e-girl manner you'll need to pick an oversized hoodie or a t-shirt, long enough to be a dress. Add a pair of black knee socks and ugly white sneakers.

• Embrace the killing black-on-black look

Black undoubtedly is an unstoppable force that forces the person on the other side to divert all of their attention to you.

So invade your closet and extract out black-colored leather pants, a plain round neck t-shirt, and, not to forget – a classic black leather jacket.

Startup by putting on the primary layer followed by a jacket. Shoes are a tricky part of this attire.

So be careful and pair the same colored shoes with the attire.

#1. Alt Makeup Trend: Colorful Eyeliner

The colorful eyeliner trend is a makeup trend that involves using colorful eyeliners to create bold, vibrant looks. Celebrity makeup artist Jamie Greenberg in Ipsy's article mentioned that we are going to see this trend everywhere in 2023. This trend involves using eyeliner in shades of bright colors such as pink, purple, green, blue, and orange to line the eyes, either on the top or bottom lash lines, or both. You'll be able to create a variety of different alternative makeup looks, from playful and fun to bold and dramatic with the help of a few different eyeliner products and a fine synthetic brush.

#2. Alt MAkeup Trend: Smokiest Smoky Eyes

The next alt trend needs no introduction. Smoky eyes are one of the most popular makeup styles, which is going to look even more dramatic in the new year. It can be achieved with a little bit of practice and a few basic makeup products: black eye kohl and a few different eyeshadow colors. The two main secrets of the look are good eyeshadow primer and blending.

#3. Alt Makeup Trend: Dark Lip Liner

Tired of tedious rose and nude shades? Then the next makeup trend will soothe your alternative soul! Dark lip liner is a makeup trend that involves using a lip liner in a deep shade, such as red, purple, or black, to outline and define the lips. Make sure to exfoliate and moisturize your lips to achieve the best results with this makeup trend.

#4. Alt Makeup Trend: Over-the-Top Eyeliner

Bold eyeliner is a go-to look for many alternative babes. You can take this trend even further, extending the liner beyond the natural shape of the eye. Don't let classic eyeliner colors stop you. Electric blue, crimson red, and pure white colors go well with this alternative makeup trend. For a more dramatic look, you can also apply a bold eyeshadow color to your eyelid and blend it into your crease and outer corner.

#5. Alt Makeup Trend: Aggressive Blush

The "Clean Girl" Look will stay trendy in the coming year. Contrary to the radiant, slightly blushed skin, the aggressive blush trend grows in popularity. I like to believe it was born as an alternative to the clean girl aesthetic. The heavy blush look can be achieved with cream, powder, or liquid blush. Pair it with minimal eye and lip makeup for a balanced look.

#6. Alt Makeup Trend: Eye-catching Accents

Sometimes all you need to leave an impression is a few small details. The next alternative makeup trend involves placing small, evenly spaced accents of eyeliner along the upper and lower lash lines and all over the face. These accents can be differently shaped and sized, done with rhinestones or even lipstick. For a more dramatic look, you can create larger graphic shapes or use a deeper shade of liner. You can also mix and match different shades of the liner to create a custom color that suits your skin tone and personal style.

#7. Alt Makeup Trend: Bleached Eyebrows

Love them or hate them, bleached eyebrows aren't going anywhere! This makeup trend ideally goes with most alternative styles, adding uniqueness to the face. However, bleaching your eyebrows can be a risky process. Harsh chemicals can damage your hair and skin. It's important to follow the instructions on the bleach kit carefully and to conduct a patch test to ensure that you are not allergic to the bleach. If you are unsure about bleaching your eyebrows, it is always best to seek the advice of a professional hairstylist.

#8. Alt Makeup Trend: High-Shine Lips

High-shine lips or vinyl lips are a versatile makeup trend that involves creating a glossy, high-shine finish on the lips using a lip product with a vinyl-like finish. My personal favorites – are black or cherry-red glossy lips. But the natural lip color, covered with a coat of shiny lip gloss also looks fabulous. Plus it is more wearable. Achieve the vinyl lip look with lip gloss or liquid lipstick.

#9. Alt Makeup Trend: Fantasy Vibe

Fantasy makeup is a creative and expressive form of makeup that is inspired by mythical creatures, fantastical worlds, and otherworldly themes. This trend is often characterized by bold, vibrant colors, intricate designs, and exaggerated features, and is often achieved using a variety of makeup products, such as eyeshadow, liner, glitter, and face paint. The hardest thing about this alternative makeup trend – choosing a theme or inspiration that speaks to you.

#10. Alt Makeup Trends: Glossy Eyelids

Glossy eyelid is a famous makeup trend that is going to stay popular in 2023. Your alt makeup look will definitely benefit from its dewy, youthful appeal.  You can use shiny lip gloss to create a glossy effect on your eyelids. Simply apply a small amount of gloss to your eyelids using a brush or your finger, and blend it out for a seamless finish.

Summing Up...

Alternative makeup trends are styles and techniques that deviate from traditional or mainstream beauty standards. Instead of focusing on everyday norms, alt makeup trends often focus on self-expression and creativity. There are no strict rules on achieving a certain makeup look. Hopefully, in the new year, we all can learn something from the trend I mention above. Maybe some of us will feel courageous to try something new?
