There are other places to wear the slip dress besides the bedroom. Channel your inner 90’s maven and give this simple, but sleek dress a chance.
The slip dress may appear plain, but don’t let it’s simplicity fool you - it is anything but dull. It may appear plain on its own, but is amazingly fun and easy to mix and match with other pieces. You can achieve a variety of looks with the dress for a night out, going to a beach resort, shopping with friends, and more. Here are three easy ways you can satisfy the urge to wear the slip this spring.
1. maxi slip
A maxi slip can be worn for looks that are more upscale and will look great underneath a sleek, fancy coat. Heavy accessorizing won’t be necessary for something like this. To offset the austerity of the outfit, pick some fun heels and an ornate clutch to bring more life to the outfit.
2. bohemian edge
For those who have an adventurous streak, this may be perfect for you. Rock a look with some bohemian edge by wearing a shorter slip underneath a suede moto jacket. Then express your free spirit with your most stylish floral platforms, a fedora, a brightly colored purse, a silver statement necklace, and some sunglasses.
3. The slip
The slip can also be sweet! If you have a lengthy cardigan and you’re not sure what to wear it with, combine it with a floral slip. For a little extra visual interest, you can pick a lace bralette and let the top of it peek out from underneath your slip. While you are at it, this would be a great time to experiment with accessories in Pantone’s official colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity.
At first glance, I used to think the simplicity of a slip was it’s greatest weakness. Now I see it as a strength. With some careful forethought and tactful accessorizing, the slip dress can be one of the greatest commodities in a person’s closet. Give the slip a chance, and see what kind of outfits you can come up with this coming season.
