So there are more than a few trend trains that I haven't been jumping aboard this year (some being sleepwear as daywear inspired fashion, David Bowie boots, Gucci's furry mules, non/ironic logo t-shirts, or the lace up everything trend...). One I wasn't immediately in love with was the slip trend. That is, until now.
Originally the slip dress trend reminded me of my earlier attempts at fashion in 90s (those pictures didn't survive the move shockingly. Aww, darn!). A little too "lingerie inspired" from my memory. Trends can be hard enough to pull off sometimes. Trying to pull off a daytime look that is already inspired by lingerie is just down right difficult if not impossible. Rather than pursue #TBT with the overly sexual slip dress trend of the 90's I decided to go with a modern cut silk dress. This already gives it several degrees of separation from the bedroom.
If I were to wear this look for evening I would dress it up with nude heels, choker, and clutch bag (very a la Kardashian). The modern daywear slip dress is meant to be fun and casual. Pair yours with sneakers or mules to keep it grounded as an "on the go" look. To even further the comfort layer yours with t-shirts or over skinny jeans or leggings. I was using this outfit to transition from day to night so I wore it with casual wedged mules and minimal jewelry to marry the two elements of slinky and casual.
You'll be seeing me try several looks with this dress over the next few months as I transition it from summer to fall. For now though, you can consider me jumping on the caboose of the slip dress train at the very least.
