One of the hottest trends of this season is the slip dress. Inspired by the popular 90’s trend, the slip dress is the “IT” dress of fall. It comes in many different fabrics and lengths, from velvet to satin and from mini to maxi. I love how versatile this piece is. You can wear it during the day time with a t-shirt or a shirt underneath for a casual look and for the night-time you can pair it with strappy heels for a sexy look. With the 90’s making a comeback this fall, this trend is so popular that all the high-street brands have a variety of the slip dress. If you are looking for the satin version, check Missguided, for velvet go to ZARA and if you are looking for something not as plain, River Island has some with lovely prints.
I got my first slip dress from ZARA. It is not a velvet one (bummer) but I love it so much anyways. It is a stretchy, cotton, color block dress; nude, black and some white are combined in a geometrical way to create this beautiful dress. The reason why I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it, is how easy I can match it with many different shoes of different colors. I am really impressed with its fit and how it falls over my body without drawing much attention to the areas I am more conscious about.
For a casual day I chose to style it with either ankle boots – mines are from TOPSHOP – or girly flats (from COACH) and with my new favorite black leather jacket (fake) that I just purchased from H&M. Just a casual pair of shoes can dress it down and create a lovely and effortless look.
For a fancier nighttime look, I simply paired it with my favorite black heeled pumps from ASOS and a studded ZARA clutch.
Adding a slip dress in your fall wardrobe is essential, as it is one of the biggest trends this season. Velvet or satin, mini or midi, go for what expresses you most and don’t be afraid to create some interesting pairings. Fashion is creativity and fan above all!
