Let’s be honest: wearing a slip dress can be intimidating! The lightweight filmy fabric cut in a body-skimming silhouette can be just as daunting as a bandage dress (or even a bikini!).

The trick is in the styling and this piece is all about striking a balance. More romantic and less obvious than its short, skin-tight counterparts  - the slip dress is simple in design, but complicated in concept. After all, who leaves the house in just their underpinnings?

Ideal for date nights and summer travel, this minimalist number requires just the right accessories. Wear with woven wedges or flats and layer with a long kimono or summer knit for a girly approach, throw on a denim jacket or lightweight bomber and some slip on sneakers for a sporty vibe, top with a leather jacket or oversized cardigan and your favorite structured hat for an edgy look - pairing it with darker, stronger leathers accessories will keep it from looking too sweet.


Just like with any other new trend (or old trend reinvented), the key is to figure out how to make it your own. Try it on with all your favorite warm weather staples and report back, we want to hear how it goes!
