The Various Ways of Wearing a Slip Dress

The summerlike temperatures and the intermittent rain may confuse our outfit choices for spring, but the season brings new life to your wardrobe with beautiful textiles and skin-baring items. More women will ditch their tights and show off their stems while wearing dresses, which can be intimidating at first given how little leg maintenance is required during winter. “You may be slowly emerging from hibernation mode,” as Refinery 29 states, “but things are moving fast on your social calendar for the next few months,” and a quick fix for all your upcoming soirees and outdoor events is a wide range of spring dresses. From minis to maxis and casual to formal dresses, the international fashion e-store Lyst showcases pieces to suit any occasion, but the one style that we never anticipated to see light outside of the boudoir was the negligee. Satins, silks, chiffon and lace may have originally been made for the bedroom, however designers have found new use for lingerie and are now deeming slip-ons appropriate to wear on a day to day basis. The concept of underwear as outerwear first came about a couple years ago and continues to be a favorite spring trend for a number of labels as slips look slinkier than ever. But like any other garment in your wardrobe, there are certain dos and don’ts for wearing your silk slip in public. To give you a better picture of pulling off this look, here are a few tips to consider:

Go casual with a denim jacketMost people think that the material of slip dresses deem them as formal wear, but In Style says that a matte slip paired with a neutral sneaker slide and denim jacket buttoned only at the top is a perfect outfit for the weekend.

Look sultry with a black slip and gold jewelryA black slip is sexy and works well as evening attire when worn with simple sandals, but it’s the modern gold jewelry that will give you that extra appeal.

Dial down the sexiness with a teeSlips may be too daring for someone who likes to keep her style conservative, so Vogue suggests that you counter the sexiness with a long-sleeved shirt or a casual tee.



  1. i really like this trend – especially with summer approaching! i like that you featured some with black lace. i'm not very girly or feminine, so i feel like i could wear this with a bit of a badass detail like that black lace!
