Friday Favorites – Styling a Slip Dress

Welcome to Friday Favorites, today I am sharing my favorite ways to style a slip dress. This is a timely topic as I have just come upon a slip dress that I can actually wear with ease. Sound crazy? I know. But let me give you the backstory. I purchased my first slip dress a few years back and wore it only a handful of times. Turned out the fabric was too thin, it required either a shirt underneath or a strapless bra. I had to resort to wearing a bodysuit underneath but then noticed that since the fabric was too thin, forget VPL, I had bodysuit lines!

The Slip Dress of My Dreams

I happened upon this slip dress a few weeks ago while perusing the Target site. I was drawn to the thicker straps and figured I’d give it a try. I ordered the green, seen here initially. It exceeded my expectations on so many fronts that I decided to get it in black as well. I’ll wear it to my son’s college graduation in 2 weeks!

Style the Slip Dress Casually

Styling a slip dress casually makes it a top contender for packing on a trip! Throw on a t-shirt and knot it in front for a fun and modern look. Add a denim jacket and sneakers or sandals and you have an instantly casual yet chic outfit!

Dressed Up Slip Dress

Most of the time I plan to wear my slip dress as is with a pair of heels. It is hot here in FL after all! But there will be times I’d like an additional layer. And certainly if I was wearing this to any type of work function, I’d add a blazer. Another option is to add a silk blouse, it feels luxurious and is lighter than a blazer.

Your Turn

Do you own a slip dress? If so, what’s your favorite way to style it? Right now, Target has 20% off dresses, grab this one – give it a try and let me know your thoughts. I am so impressed with the quality and think you will be too!
