How to Wear a Slip Dress

How to Wear a Slip Dress
August 2015
Transition the lingerie-inspired look to everyday elegance

McKenzie Welch, Director of Marketing, Bits of Lace
“For a sporty daytime look, try a slip dress with a pair of sneakers. For nighttime, pair the slim silhouette with a contrasting clutch or chunky sandal. Opt for seamless undergarments like a strapless bra or decorative bralette. The key to not looking like you just stepped out of your boudoir is avoiding too-short dresses; I recommend knee-length or longer pieces.“

Anthony Brown, General Manager, Shoes on King
“This style is best in pale colors. If you feel it’s too bare, put on a shirt tied at the waist or a light sweater or jacket. Keep the look minimal by pairing it with simple flats or nude sandals.“
