How to style a slip dress 4 ways

I’ve officially hit the age where the fashion cycle is repeating itself. While some trends like bell bottoms, acid wash jeans and butterfly clips are better left in the past, the resurgence of some familiar 90’s styles makes me excited to try my hand at updating the look and incorporating it into my everyday style.

The slip dress is so beautiful in its simple, slinky glory. It can be dressed up or down and is versatile enough to be worn year-round with the right accessories.

Here are four ways to style a slip dress, perfect for casual or dressy occasions:

1. Tone-on-tone duster cardigan

I love this look for a date night. Generally speaking, I’m always a fan of a monochromatic look. One peek into my closet and you can tell I’m not big on colour. It’s just a sea of tan, black, white and denim. I know what I like, and I stick with it!

2. Knit turtleneck

This is another monochromatic look. You could totally use a different coloured turtleneck, but I like how this outfit came together. It both dresses up the turtleneck and dresses down the slip dress.

3. Oversized v-neck sweater

An oversized sweater is such a great way to wear your dresses into winter. You just have to make sure your sweater hits you in the right spot. I had belt this one underneath to make it shorter.

4. Leather jacket

A leather jacket is one of my favourite accessories. It instantly makes any outfit feel cooler and more out together. And I love the juxtaposition of silk and leather together.
