Hey guys! Happy March! This time of year, I’m more than ready to break out the sundresses, flowy tops, and lightweight pants, but sadly the Boston weather isn’t on the same page as me yet. You’d think I’d be used to this by now since I’ve been going through this spring waiting game for four years now, but no. I’m still bummed about it and trying to find ways to cope (insert dramatic sigh). One of my favorite go-to coping mechanisms is layering in warmer weather pieces with my current winter wardrobe. One trend I’ve been dying to try for a while is the slip dress. How to wear a slip dress in winter you ask? Great question! Seems like a crazy idea, I’ll be the first to admit, but this was a style challenge I was ready to take head on.
When I first saw this slip, I had to have it. (This exact style is sold out, but here’s a similar option!) It was an impulse buy, no doubt, but I’ve found myself grabbing it way more often over the past few weeks than I expected. This slip is obviously very sheer, so I opted to layer a longer, waffle knit sweater over it to mix textures and balance out the high slits on the dress. I thing the number one think to keep in mind with slip dresses (in winter) is that you need to balance out the dramatic hems or necklines with something structured or a little more conservative. For example another way I’ve worn this slip is with leather leggings and a cropped long-sleeved sweater. I think I’ll try layering a sweater underneath my slip next!
What do you think of this look and the slip dress trend?
