Slip Into the easiest Dress Of All.
When we began the ‘Few Good Dresses’ series it was for the lone reason of simple styling. Dresses are exactly that. They’re easy to throw on and walk out the door in whilst simultaneously making us feel confident and ‘well’ dressed.
Slip dresses are an extension of that ideology. A versatile garment to dress up or down channeling the lingerie as outerwear trend we’ve been seeing a lot of recently. The silk variety is our go-to; the satin sort, gorgeously uncomplicated yet always making an understated statement.
The shape is effortlessly feminine – close to the body without being too revealing and with the right styling, the look of the slip can transform entirely.
They’re flattering, sultry and romantic; an essential for the dress collection we all adore.
For a straighter frame, try a slimmer fit and for a curvier figure, go for a slip with a bias cut. The shape will balance out in line with the body.
Take the slip to the office, in the suitcase, or out to town, it’s an adaptable piece to work for every occasion.
Simply adjust the accessories to ensure it’s always appropriate.
Flats or sneakers with a lighter jacket or cropped cardigan will allow it to work for every day but swap the shoes for a kitten mule to take it into the evening. It’s the perfect “under jacket” piece if we don’t wish to wear bare arms.
To make the look a little bit more casual, try layering a t-shirt underneath. Stick to a monochrome palette such as a black slip over a white tee, or have fun with nude or blush pink tones.
Take the slip dress into every season. It’s a year-round must-have.
The next time we need simple styling, we’re slipping straight into a slip.
