How to Style a Slip Dress, Part One

1 How to Style a Slip Dress

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.

    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.

    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!

    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 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 ?

    November 16, 2017 at 2:55 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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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!

    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!

      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!
