How to wear a slip dress?
It’s been quite some time I’ve been thinking of a trend that has been revived over the years, faded to reappear gloriously: the slip dress. I remember Kate Moss in the 90s or the latest shows of Céline and her majesty the night-gown, ops, the slip dress. There is something extremely cool and tempting to go outside, in the daylight, or to an official cocktail, wearing a dress that extends slightly beyond conventional boundaries.
Personally, I had some internal struggles because:
– It has specifics of wearing
– I thought it looks good only on very slender, almost androgynous silhouettes
That’s why I decided to share here some personal experience on the topic:
Regarding the silhouette: it’s all about the right proportion. So, if you are slim, you can select a long and straight silhouette. If you have shapes and curves – then it is better to choose a model above the knee, freely falling down (be careful not to get a too wide one).
In this styling I played with the contrasts – of fabrics and volumes because I paired this elegant dress with an oversize masculine blazer.
And here comes the most important part of the overall look:
It is very important to choose well in order to get the most of it.
I chose a model that is really trendy this season – the lace-up sandals.
Mine are made of very soft and nice leather with wide heels and are extremely comfortable. Most importantly, they are very flattering to the legs and go equally well with dress, skirt, jeans and even with black opaque tights (I’ve tried this one during the past rainy days). Another fashion element is the white sole, which is also very trendy at this moment.
So, beauties, I wonder – have you ever worn a slip dress? And lace-up sandals?
