The slip dress was a major trend of SS16 shows and iconic fashion houses such as Celine, Calvin Klein or Yves Saint Laurent proved this lingerie-inspired piece should deserve a place in our day-to-day wardrobe. It is definitely a key trend with serious staying power that not only offers endless styling possibilities but also embraces the ultra-feminine romance.
After I had a look at the runway for inspiration I fell even more in love with this versatile clothing and decided to style it my own way, not being afraid to experiment with layering. Therefore, I pulled off a printed version to make this dress daytime appropriate and also added a feminine pussy-bow blouse, block-heels and glittery socks for a more sophisticated vibe. The abundance of floral prints makes this look stand out, while the bow-detail and all the pretty ruffles on the blouse take this trend to another level.
I really think that if styed right, the slip dress is not just a piece meant to be worn in the bedroom. For instance a silk version works perfectly if you want to obtain an outstanding evening look, just add glam accessories and you’re good to go. Or opt for a fluid floral dress like the one I’m wearing to make it more wearable during the day. With so many styles to choose from, pick your favourite and get ready to embrace one of the coolest trends of the season!
With love, Andreea R.
