3 Tips to Styling a Slip Dress for Summer

Let’s make the most of your slip dress this season - it’s a simple piece that can be transformed in so many ways, perfect for the unpredictable spirit of summer. We have three foolproof methods to style a slip:


Start by pairing your slip dress with a classic denim jacket. It’s a perfect look for a day out or a relaxed evening gathering. The ruggedness of denim contrasts the slip dress’s softness!

If you’re aiming for a more polished look, reach for a lightweight cardigan or a blazer. Ideal for the office or a cute evening out.

For a base layer, the possibilities are endless. Slip your dress over a crisp white or vintage T-shirt for a laid-back look. Or, if you’re feeling more adventurous, try a button-up shirt or a snug long-sleeve top.

Layering is all about balance and creativity. Mix and match different textures and styles to find the perfect combo! 


First up, think big with a chunky necklace or bold earrings. Both will take a slip dress from simple to simply stunning!

Belts are another game-changer. Cinching your slip dress at the waist with a stylish belt not only adds a little sophistication but also helps to define your silhouette. Go thin for a more elegant ensemble or wider to make a statement out of your belt of choice.

For those sunny days, why not pair your dress with a cool summer hat? It adds a relaxed, casual vibe to your look.

Don’t forget, the power of a great handbag cannot be beaten! Whether you choose a cute clutch for evenings or a casual crossbody bag for daytime adventures, the right bag can complete your look.

And if you’re a fan of subtlety, classic silver or gold jewellery never goes out of style. Simple, elegant pieces can compliment your slip dress without overwhelming it.


Play with Footwear:

Transitioning your slip dress from a sun-soaked day to a glamorous night is as easy as switching up your footwear. For a laid-back, casual daytime vibe, nothing beats the classic comfort of white sneakers. They’re perfect for a relaxed brunch or a stroll through the city.

As the sun sets, elevate your look by slipping into a pair of strappy heels or cute flats for the evening.

But why stop there? For those daring nights out, go bold with knee-high boots. They add an edgy twist to your feminine slip dress, perfect for making a statement.

Experiment with Outerwear:

Outerwear can dramatically transform the character of your slip dress. For a trendy and youthful look, pair your dress with a bomber jacket. This combination is not only stylish but also practical for those cooler summer evenings.

Alternatively, for a more polished and professional appearance, drape a tailored blazer over your shoulders. This look works wonderfully for office settings or formal events where you want to maintain a chic, yet authoritative presence.

By experimenting with these combinations, your summer slip dress can take you anywhere, adapting to any style or occasion with ease. So go ahead, mix and match to your heart's content, and watch as your slip dress becomes the most versatile piece in your summer wardrobe. 

How to Wear A Slip Dress to a Wedding?

Attending a wedding and wondering what to wear? A slip dress is a stylish and sophisticated choice. When it comes to weddings, maxi slip dresses are a go-to!

Opt for a floor-length slip dress in a solid, sophisticated colour. This not only ensures elegance but also aligns perfectly with the celebratory atmosphere of a wedding. To complete this look, pair your dress with elegant heels. They add just the right amount of height and class required!

In terms of accessories, less is more. Choose minimalistic jewellery that complements but doesn't overpower your dress. A simple necklace or a pair of tasteful earrings can work wonders. And don’t forget a matching clutch – it's not just practical for carrying essentials; it also adds a cohesive touch to your ensemble. 

How Should a Slip Dress Fit?

The beauty of a slip dress lies in its fit. It should be comfortable, allowing you to move freely and feel confident.

The key is finding a dress that skims your body without being too tight. A slip dress should offer a flattering fit that gently accentuates your curves, highlighting your natural shape subtly and elegantly.

Adjustable straps are a bonus as they allow for a customisable fit. With adjustable straps, you can ensure the dress sits perfectly on your body, providing both comfort and style. Remember, the right fit is about feeling your best and exuding confidence.
