The slip dress is a great summer essential to have in your closet. I call it the “to go” outfit, slip it on and you are out the door. This novelty piece is a staple for the trendy lazy girl. Not only deemed as an under garment or a 90’s essential this effortless dress is easy to style from day to night with a switch of a shoe. In this lookbook I created 3 ways to style the summer pink slip dress.
Look 1: Ready
With this look I wanted to create a city girl vibe. Pairing chunky accessories to create a edgy Latina style. Here’s a little secret… my “gold chain” and “scarf” are both head bands that I decided to wear as necklaces. I was on the lookout for something to decorate my décolletage, but couldn’t find anything that screamed at me while on the hunt. I shopped in my closet instead and opted for this gold head band. In the past many attempts were made to wear as it was intended for, only to find strands of hair pulled out when it was time to come off my head. Not a fun time I’ll tell ya. I prefer it as a chunky necklace….Mini Mr. T. Nothing yells street style than a pair of big earrings. I found these square earrings from Burlington Coat factory and continued to decorate my digits with these cute rings from Forever21. I kept the bag simple with my very trendy straw bag from Target and tied the whole look with my adidas kicks. Not forgetting one of my favorite jean jackets from H&M for those cool summer nights. Upgrading this simple pink slip dress into a casual urban style.
Look 2: Slip and slides
Simplicity at its best. Still look stylish with this pink slip dress paired with your favorite pair of slides. I kept it safe with my black pink floral ones. Feel free to play with color and snatch a pair that are summer bright for an extra pop to add to this simple dress. Great for lounging around while hanging with the girls or introduce this modern look on a day date with your partner. I kept the look very simple with layered jewelry from H&M, another straw bag from Good will, and my trusty pair of slides. Hair pulled back in a sleek pony to finish off the casual modern vibes.
Look 3: Date Night
Let’s switch up the casual day looks and turn up the glam. It’s time to style this pink slip dress for a sexy date night by adding a duster coat into the mix. This pink and green floral duster with pops of blue is from Fashion Nova. I have to say how much I love pink and green together! The colors are perfect to mix for summer. It could be worn opened as pictured or tied in the front. Hair up in a bun, dangling cross earrings (Fashion Nova), and my old Michael Kors watch with the extra bling bing to add to the sophisticated attire. I also paired my clear strappy shoes (Fashion Nova) and pale pink purse (Forever21) to complete the look. I must admit this duster is my favorite part to the whole look.
Starting off as an undergarment the slip dress has come along way to now being an essential piece to have in your closet. It can be styled for all year round. The slip dress is here to be worn and shown. Get creative and showcase your savvy fashion ways by styling a slip dress for this summer.
