First made noteworthy in 1995’s Clueless (thanks, Cher), slinky slip dresses are back in a big way. This elegant throw-on-and-go style is a staple for style mavens year round, but their slim silhouette and feminine fabric make them especially ideal for this time of year.
Here are our tips for slaying all summer in slip dresses.
Bring Out Your Boho Side
Stuck in the past? As if! Add a modern twist to this comeback chameleon with a beachy kimono in a bold, fun print or subtle lace details for feminine flair. Finish with fringe sandals and a circle bag before heading out the door.
Add In Athleisure
Showcase your sporty side in a breathable, pastel slip dress with a pair of fashion sneakers. Throw your slip on over a fitted tee for a dressed-down look that’s equal parts casual and cool. If sneakers aren’t your thing, slip into slide sandals.
Edge It Up
For a chic mix of feminine and tough, pair a luxe silk slip dress with a plaid button-down tied around your waist and stacked heels. You can also add a dash of daring to this killer night-out look with a bold statement necklace in your favorite shade.
Whether knee-length or tea length, solid or printed, you’re guaranteed to be a total Betty when you add a slip dress to your warm-weather rotation.
