How to Style a Slip Dress, Part One

How to Style a Slip Dress, Part One

Slip dresses and motos are a match made in style heaven. And hopefully this trend will stick around for a whole. I actually wore a similar look but with a pleated midi skirt (see that here) and got tons of #thumbsup from you guys! Thank you!!!

I’ve had this slip dress since late spring and never wore it. As most of you know, I have serious issues with my upper body…more specifically my arms, wide back, and broad shoulders. I really love this slipdress, but I knew I wouldn’t wear it til the weather got a bit cooler. I knew I’d need to wear a moto jacket or open-front cardigan to cover those unpleasant areas.

I paired this look with sock booties, but it’s still perfectly ok to wear with ankle-strap sandals…at least in the South it is. As far as I’m concerned, this is the quintessential date night outfit. Now I just need to find this dress in black and maybe silver.

In my next post (Friday), I will share how I styled my second (and unexpected) slipdress look…a look I think I prefer more than this one! So be on the lookout for that.

As you read this, I am enroute to LONDON!!!! I’ve been wanting to visit for as long as I can remember and I’m finally heading there! I’m not one to get along with cold and wet weather and I hear that’s how it is this time of year there. At this point, I seriously don’t care. I’m just estatic to make this journey and explore. Make sure you follow me here (or on the sidebar) on Instagram so see all I see, where I go, what I’m wearing, where I’m staying, what I eat, and all the goods and deets! I want to share this journey with you!!!

And just so you know, I will soon be in the process of changing up my blog layout/theme. So if it’s seems things are quite right here, just know I’m changing and improving…all for my one year blogging anniversary. Can’t believe it’s been just about a year!!! Ahhh…

Thank you so much for reading. I love having you here. Grab a glass of wine and stay a while. And as always, have a beautiful day and weekend. XOXO

    I love this dress, is definitely a perfect date night dress. The color is so pretty and romantic, and the length is great as well. I would wear a jacket on top too.

    Such a cute look! Definitely going to be stealing if .

    I love how you managed to pull off a super feminine but edgy look!

    Oh, girl! This dress is beautiful and so are you. Loved the way you paired this together!!

    This is a cute outfit. I love having a simple dress to throw on and jazz up with accessories.

    This dress is not something I would wear, although I think it is so cute, it looks wonderful on you. I love how you added the jacket and boots….and whatever issues you have with your upper body it is not noticeable at all.

    Congratulations on your one year blog anniversary and on your trip to London. How exciting for you!

  8. November 15, 2017 / 3:09 pm

    I love your choice for the boots. They really do go well with the dress especially because of both colours and how they compliment eachother so damn well!

  9. November 15, 2017 / 3:14 pm

    You are always so on point! I wouldn’t know how to wear a dress like this at all but everything you’ve paired it with looks fantastic with the dress, you are a style icon! ? Have an amazing time in London, that is SO awesome! You’ll love it, I am sure! If you get time make sure you head to Oxford Street, I can see you getting along just fine with all the beautiful clothing shops there!

    I adore the way you have styled this slip dress with the moto! The color of this dress looks so beautiful on you and I’m loving your boots!

    The slip dress looks so beautiful on you. I love how you styled it with the leather jacket and handbag. Also, the boots made it look even more stylish.

  12. November 15, 2017 / 11:12 pm

    I think this is a really cute look. And pairing it with silver and the jacket would be amazing! Love your style tips, lady!

    Wow thanks for your tips! I meed more courage to wear a slip dress, but with your tips, I am more motivated to try!

    I love that color. I have a photo shoot in a few weeks for a yoga website. I need you there to consult on poses ?

    Slip dresses always remind me of nightgowns ? Though you styled it really smoothly and you can’t really say it looks like a nightgown.. I don’t think I could wear one of these though.. It’s just not my style ?

  16. November 16, 2017 / 9:23 am

    I would never wear a long dress and boots, but you rocked it! I love the color of the dress, but I could never pass off a long dress.

    This dress is so cute! I love that you can dress it up or wear it casual!

  18. November 16, 2017 / 10:49 am

    I love styling dresses with leather jacket (and of course with jeans too). Btw, those boots are absolutely amazing!

  19. November 16, 2017 / 11:03 am

    You look great in that! If you paired it with a blazer, it would give a professional look and you could even wear it to the office. Looking forward to hearing about your London excursion.

  21. November 16, 2017 / 2:25 pm

    That is a beautiful dress. And you look positively breathtaking in it…..sigh I never knew they were called slip dresses but I like them!

  22. November 16, 2017 / 2:28 pm

    I love the way that you styled this pretty dress. I love the colour and your purse too.

  23. November 16, 2017 / 3:29 pm

    I like the dress, especially the color of it, so soft and beautiful. You have styled it so nicely with the jacket and accessories, love the whole look.

  24. November 16, 2017 / 7:09 pm

    Sorry – I woulda been a little bit more covered up – but the jacket is real cute, though ?

    I hope you have the most incredible time in London!! This is a beautiful outfit, by the way. Congrats on the year!

  26. November 16, 2017 / 9:13 pm

    You look beautiful in this and it is very complimenting to your figure. I like how you paired it with your accessories.

  27. November 16, 2017 / 10:46 pm

    I never thought of pairing a slip dress with a jacket like that but you rock the look! The pictures are all classy!

    The slip dress looks so gorgeous and you are very beautiful. I really love your different style, you are awesome. Your bag and shoes are perfect for your outfit.

  29. November 17, 2017 / 12:15 am

    This dress looks great on you and I love the accessories you picked out, but I can’t help feeling like this looks like a nightgown. I’d pass on wearing it myself.

      Slip dresses definitely aren’t for everyone. Thank you!

  30. November 17, 2017 / 5:30 am

    That dress really suits you, it’s a lovely colour. Thanks for these useful tips.

  31. November 17, 2017 / 5:34 am

    Stylish dress and best suited for formal occasions and party times. You look gorgeous in this dress.

  32. November 17, 2017 / 7:06 am

    That bag with the fringes is so very Me. The jacket is a perfect pair for it. I do like how the dress is decorated, almost framed in a way and you wear it really well!

  33. November 17, 2017 / 12:08 pm

    All I can really say is wow. You look amazing in that dress. I am just so impressed with how good you make that look for you. Beautiful.

    • November 28, 2017 / 11:41 am

      Awww, thanks so much David!

  34. November 17, 2017 / 4:31 pm

    I think if you are going to wear a slip dress, you ride a fine line between stylish and tacky. You did beautifully with the leather jacket. It is perfect!

    • November 28, 2017 / 11:40 am

      You’re too kind Kelly! I agree, you don’t want it to LOOK like a nightgown. I think a moto jacket definitely helps a lot for that!

  35. November 17, 2017 / 4:36 pm

    I really like the moto jacket and the boots. That’s a pretty color dress and it looks gorgeous on you.

  36. November 17, 2017 / 11:33 pm

    I like slip dresses. It can be really bland but it’s all about how you style it. Yep ?
