Outfits File: Three Ways to Wear a Slip Dress

Happy Monday everyone! Today I want to show you how you can make the most out of a slip dress by styling it three different ways for three different occasions. I have to point out that, more than the pattern, is the silhouette what makes this piece so versatile, so whether you like solid colours or a fun print, this is one wardrobe staple that will get you out of trouble for more than just one occasion, therefore, great to take when traveling 😉 From low-key casual weekend strolls to special evening events, the secret to making the most out if this piece is some basic styling.

PS: If you’re looking for a great solid coloured option, this one comes in black, white and blush and has GREAT reviews and this one comes in 4 colours. For a fun patterned one, I really like this one, and this one.

One option to “dress down” the dress is wearing a tee (knotted at the front) or cropped top over to make the illusion of a skirt/top combo. Toss over a denim jacket and you have one great casual look.

Another way to wear your slip dress for day time is by layering it with a basic tee and completing the whole look with comfy espadrille sneakers and a straw bag. Details: Smith Westgate Sunglasses | Universal Thread V-Neck Tee (the absolute BEST tee!!! and only $5!!!) | J.Crew Lace-up Sandals (from last year, very similar here) | Kaanas Arizona Espadrille Sneakers 

Last but not least, the easiest and most obvious way to wear your slip dress is to keep it simple with classic pieces that complement the look. If you’re looking for a sharp look, pair it with a sleek blazer, and if you’re after a cool vibe, opt for a leather jacket instead. Either way, you definitely can’t go wrong!
