Like the pyjama top, the slip dress has also been a major hit in the boudoir-dressing trend. Apart from providing good comfort and a sensual vibe, this supposed undergarment has the potential to be very versatile – especially when it comes to layering. Like the jumpsuit, the slip dress does not necessarily have to be attributed to warm temperatures because of its open and form-fitting features. It can also be coordinated with many pieces that not only provide a chic appearance but also sufficient warmth to aid in the colder seasons. The ultimate goal is to achieve a composed look by bringing out lux style from basic loungewear. Here are four “spicy” ways to rock the slip dress in the winter season that will make you forget about that nasty freezing temperature.
Coordinating with Basics
Similar to the jumpsuit, basic tops may be worn underneath the slip dress for a layered look. Wear a short or long sleeve tee for a casual look or a turtleneck for a dressier appearance.
Coordinating with Bottoms
Don’t worry about your legs being bare because it IS possible and acceptable to wear a pair of bottoms underneath a slip dress. Jeans provide a smart casual look while dress pants give off total sophistication.
Coordinating with Sweaters
You may also choose to layer over top of the slip dress rather than underneath. For more warmth, consider wearing an oversized and chunky funnel neck or crew sweater for a chic look.
Coordinating with Accessories and Shoes
For a classic vintage look, you may consider putting over a fur stole or scarf over the slip dress. For shoes, knee-high boots are recommended for adequate leg coverage.
