The slip dress is forecast to be one of the big trend of SS2016, as usual with fashion and trends, the Slip dress as outerwear is not exactly a new phenomenon, some celebrities have worn it on the red carpet but this is the first time , its going mainstream, its hitting the streets yall and I being the trendwhore that I am, see my post on 2015 major trends and my take on them here, have been giving it a look and thinking hmmm, how, how and how does one wear a slip and slay the hell outta it? Body on sleek or not.This is the image that immediately comes to mind when one thinks of donning the slip dress, the thin straps demand a no bra treatment, the way it drapes on the body is so unforgiving of any extra folds or flaps, it requires a model like figure complete with perky boobs and waist clavicles to pull this off. If you uncomfortable with walking the streets braless, this is a great way to style this look, wear it on a Tee and tie your jacket around your waist, this way you dont have to worry about your body been on fleek or nah.
The slip dress is quite a sexy outfit so if sexy is not your thing, you could toughen it up by pairing it with a pair of boots and a flannel shirt tied around the waist , I would totally rock mine this way complete with a denim or leather jacket.
When we think the slip dress, the tendency most times is to think of a satin clingy dress but one could opt for a thicker and more forgiving fabric like what Kate has on above and as always black is always a good idea especially for hiding those little extras , looking slimmer and taller.
Finally go for the classic look and throw on an oversized coat on your slip , an oversized fur coat will do just fine too , style with a pair of birkenstocks for that lazy effortless look.
As always with looks like this, you want to make sure your hair and make up game is tight and please guys no rumpled slip!
