Slip Out in This Dress!

By Bianca

It’s summertime, and that means less layers in the closet!  Light colors and light material is the motive for the upcoming hot weather.

Day or night it’s important to keep cool, but for fashionistas it’s also imperative to stay stylish.  There are many ways to keep cool and classy but I one of my favorite looks is the “Slip Dress.”  Silky and chic is the outcome when you “slip” on this one piece wonder! 

It may come across as odd to wear a slip know for being under your clothes, as your ensemble, but this style has been around for longer than you may think.   The proof is before your eyes; take a look at this photo of Liz Taylor (in the film, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof) in her “Slip Dress.”  This timeless look has been worn for quite some time (as you can see).  

You can’t go wrong with peach, coral or pink hues; neutral colors always work.  A simple platform pump or peep toes will compliment the dress along, with of course the appropriate jewelry accessories.  You could team up the slip dress with a nice set of pearls for a classy effect, maybe even a nice long necklace and/or chandelier earrings to take this look up a notch (as worn by the model in the slip dress photo showcased by Ralph Lauren).  A lengthy clutch to carry the essentials, and you have the ideal slip dress outfit. 

You can be sexy, trendy and cool all at once.   No need to sacrifice style for the heat waves to come, enjoy!
