Nicole Kidman got mixed reviews when she wore a black maxi dress by Dolce & Gabbana at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. At first glance, it may seem boring. On closer inspection though, the beautiful beadwork mixed with lace was an elegant way to showcase her long and graceful limbs.

But whether you think it’s a hit or miss, we’re sure you’ll agree that black is a good way to wear your maxi dress, especially for dressier occasions. Here are a couple of sleek designs you can incorporate in your wardrobe so you can either emulate Nicole Kidman or give her a run for her money. Enjoy!
Knit Maxi Dress, $224.00, Ksubi
We love this knit maxi dress by Ksubi because of the play on conservatism by sporting long sleeves then a deep scoop neck and sleek, body-hugging style. Like Nicole’s dress, it can also show off your legs without being too revealing.
Hadley Maxi Dress, $58.00, Motel
Made out of 95% cotton, this is a cool dress by Motel because of the low scoop neck and that tiny yet sexy mesh panel accent that makes it your interesting black dress.
Roper Dress, $93.00, LNA
Gypsy style! The 3/4-length of the wide sleeves and the adjustable cinched waist will look hip day and night. We see this accented with a chunky bangle or a small straw hat.
