This has definitely been the year of throwbacks, and one of the biggest ones is the era of 90s fashion. Lipliners, bold makeup, slip dresses, cycling shorts and chokers are just some of the trademarks of the 1990s. Slip dresses have certainly left their mark in the history and fortunately for many of us, their time has come once again and we can again look sensual and sexy without revealing too much. What’s more, with so many ways of wearing a slip dress, you don’t even have to limit yourself to wearing it only for evening events.
Wear it under a sweater
Starting off with a little twist, think about matching your slip dress with a chunky sweater. That can be a wonderful combination for breezy weather, offering you both style and enough cover-up in case of chilly weather. To maintain the relaxed vibe, put on a pair of kicks and throw a crossbody bag over you. With a pair of glasses and a beret, you’ll look chic and ready to show off your dress around the city.
Throw a leather jacket over
If you’d like to introduce a bit of R’n’R into your fashion selection, think about wearing a slip dress under a biker jacket. Roll up the sleeves put on a pair of biker boots, and don’t forget your favourite pair of shades. A studded backpack or a leather purse would go fabulously with the entire ensemble, giving you the needed hardcore vibe while still allowing the dress to balance out the whole “rocking” feel. If you go for a soft shade for the dress such as beige or champagne gold, the entire outfit will look amazing.
Match it with jeans
You don’t have a silk camisole to match with your jeans? No problem, because a slip dress can double as a longline top too. Since it’s so lightweight, you can tuck it in your jeans and it won’t show underneath at all. This will be the best choice for pear-shaped figures because you can easily create the illusion of an hourglass figure once you style your slip dress nicely with a pair of jeans. To make the entire outfit more put-together, wear patent pumps and a classy purse.
Put on a blazer
Slip dresses often give the impression of a more expensive nightgown, and if you want to avoid looking like you’ve just got out of bed, style the dress up with a blazer. If you have voluptuous curves, pick a blazer that sits right at the middle of your hips to create the illusion of a slimmer behind. Roll up the sleeves, wear a pair of strappy sandals and with an elegant clutch, your hourglass figure will look stunning and you’ll be ready for a cocktail night or even a corporate dinner. Accessorize with delicate jewellery and wear a short, elegant necklace and a pair of pearl earrings. A silver or gold watch would be the cherry on top.
Bring back the 90s
Having in mind the comeback of the 90s, feel free to dress up just like back in the day. A T-shirt under a slip dress was one of the biggest trends of the era, so it’s time to refresh your and everyone else’s memories and layer a white shirt or a T-shirt underneath a slip dress. Depending on the occasion, you can style it further up by wearing a pair of block heels. Alternatively, a pair of sneakers and a cardigan would be a great choice for afternoon errands or a coffee with friends.
Appearing so simple at first, slip dresses are actually more versatile than you could imagine. Their simplicity is precisely what gives them a chance to be matched with so many other clothing items. Therefore, feel free to experiment and discover more unique and extraordinary ways to wear your favourite slip dress.
