It is no secret that fashion RN is having a 90s moment (we love). Nothing proves that better than the resurgence of the slip dress. Transforming from a kinky bedroom piece to the perfect pick for a Saturday night, the slip dress is this season’s hottest street style outfit.
In yesteryears, the slip dress was thought to be an ‘undergarment’ that can be worn under the dress (yes, you read that right). However, the slinky piece is perfect to beat the summer heat. Which is also why it’s become so popular. If you have a slip dress or are in search of one but aren’t sure how to style it, we’re here to show you just how. Scroll on!
Over A Tee
While you may think of a slip dress as extremely feminine, trust street style fashionistas to prove you wrong. Pair your slip dress over a tee and work it with sneakers and head out to a girl’s night out. The t-shirt and sneakers add a androgynous vibe to an otherwise girly look. What was once a ‘layering piece’ is now at top-level exposure.
With A Shirt
If you’re one to ‘under dress’, here’s a hack that will take you looking from drab to fab in a jiffy. Layer your black slip dress with a striped or white shirt. Complete this with a pair of heels and you can wear this look to an almost-casual office day. Let your hair down in the evening as you work that shirt over-the-shoulder to amp your swag.
With A Contrast-Coloured Bralet
If you’ve got yourself a stark-coloured slip dress and you’re not too afraid to show a lil’ skin, we have a solution. Pair a bralet below your slip dress for a rather experimental look. We suggest a contrast-colour bralet for colour-blocking. Team this up with a pair of boots to get an egdy vibe or just go for platform sandals.
Experiment with bomber jackets, turtleneck tees and even leather moto jackets with your slip dress to stay en vogue.
