Slips – they are one of the biggest fashion trends of the summer. The slip dress is casual, flirty, fun and sexy. It can be dressed up for a nice dinner out on the town or dressed down for a picnic lunch in the park. No matter how you wear it, you can’t go wrong with a cute pair of shoes, a nice bag and the right accessories.
According to The Guardian, the iconic slip dress as we know it today made its formal fashion debut in 1993 when Kate Moss showed up to a model agency party wearing nothing but a see-through spaghetti-strap number. With a Marlboro cigarette in one hand and a beer bottle in the other, Moss revolutionized the formal lingerie look. No longer relegated to the bedroom, the ’90s slip dress trend entered the public sphere as a versatile and practical alternative to the little black dress.
It’s Saturday night and you are looking for the perfect outfit to impress. The venue is classy and romantic. You saved up for an elegant slip dress from Bloomingdales, but you don’t know what to do with it. You desperately want to avoid the see-through pajama look, so you’ll need to plan ahead. First, stay away from the white dress. Unfortunately, most of us can’t pull off the Kate Moss look. Keep the lingerie look in the bedroom where it belongs. If you still need inspiration, look to celebrities, such as Anne Hathaway and Rihanna, who were recently spotted on the red carpet wearing their own unique take on the modern slip dress.
For a fun and flirty alternative to the usual brunch attire, try pairing an elegant slip dress with a white blazer and a cute pair of black mules. If you want something a little more casual, try topping off your look with a colorful cardigan and your favorite pair of flats. Going to the beach? A stylish white fedora or wide-brimmed hat would be the perfect accessory. If you still need a little color, try incorporating some muted pastels like a salmon-colored scarf or a mint green bag.
You can wear it to a concert, a club or a casual dinner out. For the ultimate dressy-chic look, pair it with a black moto-jacket and your favorite cross-body bag. Follow these steps by StyleCaster and you are sure to impress with that edgy but feminine vibe. This trend is perfect for women who love to find that perfect balance between casual and elegance. Add a pop of red lipstick, a simple necklace and a cute pair of ankle boots and you’re good to go.
