How to style slip dresses
You'll style your slip dress differently depending on the occasion, since it can either be suuuuper sexy or cute and summery. Here are expert styling tips straight from our shopping team:
- Date night. If it's a first date, try wrapping a silky scarf or kimono over your shoulders, loosening it to show a lil' more skin as you feel comfortable. For a date with a longtime partner, we advocate for maximum sex appeal — try a lacy bralette beneath the slip dress.
- Lunch with the parents. A midi or long length might be best here, layered over a tight short-sleeve shirt or beneath an oversized tee. Espadrilles will add a dignified touch.
- Single ladies around town. We're seeing clunky high heels and statement earrings. Add a bold lip and sparkles around your eyes … and remember to snap some pics.
- Weekend errands. Layer your slip dress over a tank with wide straps, patterned tights and some sassy platform sneakers.
- Zoom meetings. Throw on a cardigan or denim jacket, with a cute necklace or scarf.
