Styling a Slip Dress

Styling a Slip Dress | Organized Mess
Styling a slip dress in the winter can be tricky. Typically, slip dresses are made from a super thin silky material so they don't exactly keep you warm on a cold February afternoon. Luckily, layers are always an option. I decided to style this green striped slip dress with a black mock neck top - both chic and practical during the wintertime. Despite the midi length I also wore a pair of tights to keep my legs warm (the wind cuts right through this material! Plus, there's a massive slit on both sides of this dress) and paired it with black and gold booties.  Other layers you could add? You could easily throw on a leather jacket or an oversized knit sweater for a more casual look.

This was actually the outfit I wore on Christmas day but I was just thinking how cute it would be for Valentine's Day too! A slip dress is a sexy option but the added layers make it perfect for a date night out on a cold night. I'm really looking forward to styling this in the spring and summer with a pair of mules or chunky sandals! Don't you love pieces that you can wear all year long?

  4. I feel really exposed in slip dresses in general, so I love layering with something underneath as well ^-^ -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
