6 Ways To Wear Slip Dresses

The slip dress isn’t just for the bedroom anymore ladies. This trend has swept the runways the past couple of seasons, so today’s #Styled6Ways is tackling the obsession head on. We’re sharing our own approach at styling this sleek and sexy trend, while showing all of you that it’s actually pretty simple to do and stylish, too.





I’m not actually 100 percent sure that this dress I’m wearing qualifies as a real “slip dress” but I thought it was close enough. My body isn’t exactly a slip dress kind-of body in my opinion, and to say I was scared of this trend would be an understatement. I was not thrilled (at first) to see it on the rise, but now I’ve come to terms with it and I’m trying to embrace it, slowly and subtly.

The slip dress silhouette is truly just one shape… straight. When you have some curves, this style can either look too big and boxy or just totally out of place in all the wrong places. So when I saw we added this to our trend list for Styled 6 Ways, I thought of a dress I had seen at Nordstrom and how I could potentially pull it off as a slip dress doppelganger. I think it works, and I actually don’t mind it.

Although it doesn’t do much for my natural shape, I believe I did myself some justice by picking the right color and fabrication. It did allow me to feel a bit fun and flirty, as well as totally excited and ready for summer. I chose to pair a fun heel with this look so that it spiced things up a bit, and gave me some height. I can’t imagine how potato-sackish this would look if I was in flats. I’ll spare you.



All together, I love the trend. I love it more for Gigi and Kendall, but it’s not as bad as I thought. I think the other ladies killed their looks as well. Be sure to check out their blogs too before you shut down and head for the weekend. Have a good one y’all!

XO, Alex
