You pose in the mirror. Twisting this way and that, trying to get a view of how you’ll look from every side. The silky material runs through your fingers as it clings to every curve. You’ve worked months so you’d look good in this tricky yet feminine staple of a dress.
Does this sound like you?
In case you’re wondering, I’m talking about none other than the slipdress!
The slipdress can be long, maxi length or short, knee length. It’s basically fashioned after the classic slip undergarment but has been brought into the present by being made to be worn as a dress. The slipdress is very versatile and a great layering piece. For women with perfectly proportioned bodies or who aren’t afraid to show their curves, it can be worn alone. If you want a more subtle, sophisticated, or bohemian look, try layering a slip dress with other pieces.
Follow my fast and easy tips and you’ll learn the top 5 ways to wear a slipdress, and you’ll be able to transition day-to-night, work-to-evening, or casual-to-formal attire!
Look #1: Long Slipdress + Trench Coat
This is a classic, old Hollywood style in which to wear your slipdress. Go for a slipdress in a soft shade of purple, green, or blue and pair with a darker trench in a contrasting shade. This will give your look an overall aire of sophistication and elegance. I’d recommend this combination for an evening event or more upscale dinner.
Look #2: Short Slipdress + Long Slipdress
For a bohemian flair, wear a short slipdress over a long slipdress. To really pull this look off, and avoid looking bulky, go for a short slipdress in a silky or satin material. Embellishments are also a great addition. Choose a long slipdress in a lightweight jersey knit or modal.
Look #3: Short Slipdress + V-Neck Sweater + Belt
To add sophistication, modesty, and a lot more coverage try this look. Pair a knee length slipdress with a v-neck sweater, a skinny belt, pumps and a clutch. This is a stunning look that can go from the office to dinner.
Look #4: Long Slipdress + Boxy Jacket
Another office appropriate combination is to pair a long slip dress with a boxy non-moto jacket and modest heels. Who says what you wear to work can’t be fabulous & professional?
Look #5: Short Slipdress + Boyfriend Jeans
I like this look when you want to dress up everyday casual. Pair a short slip dress with slouchy boyfriend or baggy jeans then throw on strappy sandals and a cute cardigan. To keep the look streamlined, choose a pair of jeans with a great fit around the waist and hips with all the “slouch” being in the leg area.
So these are some fun and fabulous ways to wear a slipdress.
