A slip dress is the most versatile type of clothing one can own. With the right accessories and layering, they can be styled for any occasion.
Slip dresses are made from lightweight fabrics such as chiffon, silk, and satin. They are designed to fit close to the body and typically feature a low neckline and spaghetti straps. This type of clothing originated in the 1920s and was worn, by women, as a way to break away from the restrictive clothing worn back in the day and express their sense of freedom and individuality through the light and airy silhouette of the dress.
The dress fell out of fashion but reappeared again in the 1990s, with famous designers like Calvin Klein and Jean Paul Gaultier embracing the look.
Since then, slip dresses have become a wardrobe staple and are gaining even more popularity as a dress that can be glammed up or romanticized, turned into streetwear or a business-casual look.
Here are five ways you can have fun and turn heads with your slip dress:
Boyfriend style look
Borrow your boyfriend/husband’s t-shirt or a full-sleeved shirt and wear it under your slip dress for a comfortable, laid-back look. Pair it with a layer of necklaces and slip-on sneakers to lift the overall look.
Baby, it’s cold outside
Stay fashionable even during winter by layering your slip dress with a sweater or a sweatshirt.
To start, simply layer your sweater by wearing it over your slip dress to create a casual yet sporty winter look. To keep yourself warm, wear tights underneath or thigh-high boots.
If you want to take the look further, wear a crop top over your slip dress, and layer it with a fuzzy sweater or your sweatshirt. Tuck the excess fabric inside the crop top to create the illusion of wearing two separate pieces of clothing.
Create a romantic allure by wearing the slip dress in all its glory. Add on pieces of dainty necklaces and strappy sandals or heels, and you’re good to go.
Boss lady look
Make your slip dress look professional by pairing the dress with a long overcoat or a belted trench coat. Accessorize with a simple pendant necklace, shoulder bag or a handbag, and pumps or scarpins for footwear to glamourize the look.
For a more traditional look, pair your slip dress with a blazer and strappy heels.
Ruby Rose aesthetic
Display a grunge-chic look by throwing a leather jacket over your slip dress and pairing it with ankle-length leather boots. Accessorize with a choker to complete the look or a simple necklace to add a more feminine touch.
If you are yet to invest in a slip dress, consider this a sign to do so! The dress will not only help you upgrade your style for the new you for the New Year, but it will also introduce versatility into your wardrobe and get your creative juices flowing since there are unlimited ways you can rock a slip dress!
