The influence of slip dress dates back in the 20´s when movie star Jean Harlow made the stylish women of her time fall in love with this bias-cut slinky number. Clearly, slip dress is one of the dresses that are forever flattering. Kate Moss and Rihanna are only some of today´s style icons who created their own interpretation of the frock.
But fashion bloggers are learning to rock the slip dress to the street. If you too are planning to brave a sexy slip outside your comfort zone, here are three style tips to remember.
Cover your shoulders
With its very slim straps and usually figure cling-y silk material, it´s easy to feel naked in a slip dress. Remember that it´s important to look comfortable in this dress, covering your shoulders with a cardigan could help you achieve that.
Match your shoes with the dress
If you want to look polish while channeling your inner vintage girl, match your shoes with the color of your dress. The shorter your dress is, the thinner the straps of your heels should be. Peep-toe DÓrsay shoes look great with a midi slip dress. I love how Rihanna looks confident in red.
Wear it loose and relaxed
From the 90s to this decade´s 00s, Kate Moss found the right place for her love of slip dresses. In conjunction with her signature style, she loves to wear it loose and relax.
She wears a sheer fringe overlaying her dress to parties, while she goes for sequined and nude, maxi style for casual affairs.
Slip dress is definitely coming back as a trend these days, from stand-out prom dresses to casual-smart day dresses. You need to find your own interpretation and feel confident in a slip.
