Style: slip dress

style trend comment

The slip dress has long been one of those unspoken pieces that you wear underneath your other dresses but the new style is to make it the focal point of your outfit. Worn alone or in conjunction with other pieces, it is definitely the statement piece. I’ve picked out 5 slip dresses that can be styled alone or layered for a completely different look.

This black slip dress is beautiful with the lace detail. Try pairing it with a structured blazer and strappy sandals for a more professional look.


 

Pink is such a romantic color and this dress is just that. Want to make the look a little more rugged? Try pairing it with this jacket and these slip on sneakers.


 

Stripes will always hold a special place in my heart and the details at the bottom hem of this dress is perfection. How about adding a button down around the waist to give some visual interest and pairing it with equally playful shoes?


 

The diagonal stripes on this slip dress would be perfect for a tropical getaway. Pair it with a cover-up, cute sandals and a hat, and you have the perfect, relaxing outfit!


 

Though in color and cut, this black slip dress speaks volumes to me. It would be great for a summertime wedding – simply add a belt and heels and you’ll be ready for the dance floor.

Save or splurge: tweed jacket

save or splurge comment

Perhaps you’ve heard of the French designer Coco Chanel? Not only sharing with the world iconic purse designs, she also popularized the collarless tweed jacket starting in 1954.

The jacket is a good alternative to a sweater or blazer for additional warmth without being too bulky. It is a piece, when added to an existing outfit, can have an uptown or downtown feel. If you’re on the lookout for an updated look on the tweed jacket, consider looking for one that is well-tailored to your frame and has a crop cut.

Here are two looks you could create depending on the occasion:

Look 1: consider wearing this out during the weekend lunch outing. Get that hip feel by draping it over a basic tee, boyfriend jeans, a tassel necklace, a hint of pink with a crossbody, and some cute espadrille sandals.

Look 2: stand out during a business meeting – this could work as a great alternative to the matchy suit ensemble. Pair it with a crisp white button-down blouse and a traditional black pencil skirt. Dress it up with accessories: a bold cuff bracelet and drop earrings, an envelope clutch, and bright red pumps. It still screams professional yet distinguishes you from others.

This is what I would consider an investment piece: it’s a look that has transcended the years and has not fallen out of style. Who makes your favorite tweed jacket?
