If you really think about it, there are few pieces of clothing more versatile than the slip dress. In the summer, wear it on its own, dressed up with a pair of heels and a clutch, or dress it down with a pair of sneakers and a denim jacket. In the fall and winter, layer it over a turtleneck for extra warmth. I first fell in love with this silhouette this spring when I bought this black one by Splendid and have literally worn it a million different ways (and now also own it in this color). I’ve thrown a blazer over it for work, worn it with sneakers to travel in, with heels to a friend’s birthday dinner, with casual flats for the weekend, and I’ve even slept in it once when I forgot to bring pajamas on a trip!
I recently added this one by Sincerely Jules to my collection and am in love with the copper color, the polka dots and the criss-cross back. I wore it to a wine tasting event in Charleston, and plan to wear it a dozen other times between now and the end of the year. It’s a perfect piece to throw in your suitcase for any occasion. Here, I paired it with my J.Crew denim jacket, Stuart Weitzman sandals and Gucci bag.
