Watch our styling video and read our top 5 ways to wear the slip dress below!
1. Effortless Elegance for Daytime: Slip dresses are not just reserved for evening affairs. We especially love the Leah Maxi Slipdress for an update to this style. For a chic daytime look, layer a lightweight tee under the slipdress for a 90's cool girl style. Worn alone the slipdress can take you from beach to brunch and add the Poplin Cargo Shirt for a light layer of coverage. Or add a sweater or a relaxed denim jacket for more warmth over your slip dress. Complete the ensemble with a pair of sneakers, sandals, or ankle boots for a laid-back yet stylish vibe perfect for the farmer's market or shopping with friends.

2. Office Chic: Elevate your workwear game by incorporating a slip dress into your office attire. There is no better way to do day-to-night dressing. Opt for a midi-length slip dress like our Cabaret in a muted tone or classic black or add some color to your office look. Layer it under a tailored blazer like our Cropped Jacket for a polished look that exudes sophistication. Layer it over a button down shirt for additional coverage and style. Pair with heels or ballet flats for a professional finish that seamlessly transitions from the boardroom to after-work cocktails. 
3. Casual Cool with Edgy Accents: Embrace the effortless cool factor of slip dresses by styling them with a casual twist. Throw on a slouchy oversized cardigan or a cozy knit sweater for a relaxed yet stylish ensemble. Accessories play a leading role here- our Harness belt is a major statement. Add a thinner draped chain belt to cinch the waist and create definition. Finish off the look with chunky chain jewelry, layered for an edgy vibe that's perfect for weekend outings or coffee dates. For a dress with chain accents built in- look at the Cabaret Chain Dress

    4. Glamorous Evenings: Slip dresses are a timeless choice for evening events, offering an understated yet glamorous allure. Glitter is the way to go here - our Crystal Stone Mesh Dress is the ultimate in sexy cool dressing. Or opt for the delicate and intricate beading of the Beaded Cabaret dress. A simple long satin slip dress with some glittering accents also makes for maximum impact. Whichever you choose, the design of our slip dresses will accent your curves in all the right ways. Pair with strappy heels and a sleek clutch for a sophisticated evening look that's pure perfection.

    5. Layered Luxe: Embrace the art of layering by incorporating multiple pieces into your slip dress ensemble. Experiment with layering a silky blouse like the Sigourney or Stevie, or try our mesh turtlenecks underneath your slip dress for added dimension and interest. For a more laid back look, a boyfriend- inspired button down like our Perfect Oversized Shirt or the Oversized Blazer finishes the look. The Cabaret Slip Dress is the perfect layering dress, and we introduce new colors all the time. 
    6. Bohemian Baabe: Channel your inner free spirit by styling your slip dress with bohemian flair. Vintage statement jewelry is the perfect accent here, and then pair it with a slouchy knit cardigan or kimono, a floppy hat, and suede sandals or ankle boots for a relaxed yet stylish look that's perfect for music festivals or laid-back summer days. Accessorize with layered necklaces and oversized sunglasses for a touch of boho chic. Two to try are our Treasure Charm necklace and coral satin Leah maxi dress
