Outfit Inspo: The Slip Dress

Season after season, we see models, celebrities, and everyday fashionistas alike paying tribute to iconic trends of decades prior, and with the legendary slip dress making its way into our closets once again, it proves that underwear as outerwear is a fashion concept that stands the test of time. Sensual and feminine, that this delicate item is the perfect piece of clothing and an easy solution for all your wardrobes woes.

But why should we be wearing the slip specifically this summer when we have got plenty of frocks at our disposal? While the a number of styles that’ll have you looking chic as ever this season, the slip is perhaps the most versatile among the rest, as the silhouette looks amazing on every body type and can be adjusted to suit any occasion. Plus, silk will keep you cool in the rising temperatures.

For a daytime, laidback vibe… 

Think about tying a shirt around your waist, specifically a flannel or chambray shirt, as . Staying true to the grunge look, finish the outfit with moto boots and a cool shoulder bag. You’ll be the hippest girl on the block.

For happy hour with friends…

Channel the ‘90s supermodel style or steal Kendall Jenner’s off duty model look by wearing a white tee under your slip.

Day dreamer. Lover of all things cute and pretty. I also have a thing with planners/organizers.

  1. I love a good slip dress, I think mixing it with something that is the complete opposite like a flannel or white button up makes it work as a great outfit so it doesn’t look like you just walked out in your nighty!

  2. I love slip dresses! I just prefer the ones that fit a little looser so they can hide my poochy belly. But they are so versatile and adorable. I especially like the grunge look. I’d totally wear that.

  3. very cute style! I love the simplicity of the slip dress, yet the femininity of it. There is nothing more empowering as a women to feel confident and sexy with wardrobe.

  4. That flowered slip dress is everything! Also, I absolutely hate pink but that cosy sweater paired with the black lace gives it a little bit of the edge that I love.

    I have to say, after taking stock in the three slips that I own (Victoria’s Secret), I feel like they’re far too short and/or sheer to be worn on their own. Is layered slips a thing? Maybe I need to be on the hunt for the perfect slip. Do you have any brand recs?
