Style Inspiration: The Slip Dress

The slip dress is one of those dresses that you wouldn’t normally touch with a ten-foot pole except if you’re wearing them to bed or to just lounge around the house.

If we’re being honest, it’s basically a nightie but some of our favourite celebrities and fashionistas are showing us it’s more than just a night wear and can be put to other stylish uses.

Here is a couple of ways you can style the sexy curve-skimming number without looking like it’s your bedtime.

For a casual chic vibe, you can borrow a leaf from Justine Skye and Fisayo Longe and style your slip dress with lumberjack boots or sneakers.

You can also try tying a flannel shirt around your waist to switch up your cool.


Also try turning your slip dress into a skirt by wearing a sweater or T-shirt over it.


The sexy skimpy number can also come in handy for a dinner date. Pair it with some sexy heels and minimal accessories like Chloe Moretz did in the picture above and you’re good to go.

Rihanna and Gigi Hadid are like the top champions of the slip dress. We’ve seen more photos of them rocking the slip dress than we have of any other celebrities.

You can take their laid back and sexy approach to the slip dress by throwing a slouchy coat over it.

Go edgy like fashion blogger, Ada (@stylebyada on Instagram) and Gigi by pairing your slip dress with denim jacket or a bomber jacket. Style with boots and some dope accessories and you’re automatically a winner.


Like them or not, you can never undermine the influence the Kardashian-Jenner sisters wield in fashion globally and if they all agree that it’s cool and stylish to wear a shirt underneath the slip dress, then who are we to argue.
