How to Wear a Silk Slip Dress

This 90's staple is making a major comeback. Slip dresses cropped up all over the runways for Spring 2016.

Length is key. Too short looks too ready for bed; midi or floor-length looks more modern. Slips lend themselves to layering. Try wearing one under a skirt or another dress, so you can see a bit of lace poking out underneath the hem. 

1. With a turtleneck layered over it. 

Feeling cold this winter? Make like Kate Moss from the 90's and combine the best of two worlds: The cozy turtleneck and the body-clinging slip dress. 

2. With a shirt layered over it. 

Slip dresses are meant to be sexy, and that they are. Want to tone the sexy level of your slip dress down? Turn it into a skirt, layering a T-shirt or a sweater over it, so just a peek of the slip dress is visible. Totally acceptable to wear during the day.

3. With an open cardigan. 

Take your slip dress to dinner, pairing it with a soft open sweater. Don’t be afraid to play with color, but keep your accessories on the minimal side. Add a sexy pair of mules, and you’re good to go.

4. With a motorcycle jacket.

Motorcyle jackets and slip dresses are a match made in style heaven. Wear the outfit with ankle-strap sandals when it’s balmy outside, and transition to boots when the weather turns chilly. This is the quintessential date night outfit.

5. With boyish flats and an oversize blazer.

Temper the dress’ inherent sexiness with menswear staples, like a oversize blazer and not-so-feminine flats.
