Styling a Summer Slip Dress

Slinky, silky, sexy. What we love most about the slip dress is that it rarely goes out of style. It’s flattering, comfy, and versatile – dress your slip up or down depending on the vibe. Whether you’re heading into town or out on the town, a slip dress is a wardrobe staple that can be styled in so many fun and different ways. Here are a few looks we love to give you some inspo.

Style Your Summer Slip Dress for a Casual Day Look

They’re not just evening attire. You can easily style your summer slip dress for a cute day ‘fit. Here’s a look we’re loving: wear this Satin Spotted Print Dress with a pair of white sneakers and a light denim jacket. It’s a great look for a coffee date or brunch with your besties.

Spice it up. Another casual daylook is our Criss-Cross Linen-Blend Mini Dress in green or black worn with our Faux Straw Buckled Fedora and a pair of matching brown sandals, great for a weekend getaway with the girls.

Hats and flats are great options for dressing down your summer slip dress. We think you should pair your criss-cross linen-blend mini dress with a cute crossbody bag or black leather backpack for a more relaxed vibe.

Go a little alternative with your style and rock this Satin Cowl-Neck Slip Dress in white or black with a pair of black boots, a cropped denim jacket and a felt fedora. This look totally fits the brief for checking out a summer festival or hitting up an art gallery.

Rock a Summer Slip Dress in the Office

Ok, we see your apprehension and raise you this hot business look. For a more refined look choose a slip dress that is knee or full length that isn’t too low-cut or figure-hugging. We are loving this Satin Cowl-Neck Slip Dress in black or white, which is calf-length and modest enough to sashay around the office. Wear it under a long black, white, or tartan blazer paired with your favorite tote and some strappy heels to give off serious lady boss energy. It’s the ideal outfit for dashing from coffee to meetings to coffee again.

Glam Up Your Summer Slip Dress for a Night Out

Nothing says happy hour more than a summer slip dress. When it’s time to head out for drinks with the squad, slip into our Satin V-Back Slip Dress. Throw on a pair of strappy heels and some dangly earrings, grab your favorite clutch and you’re good to go.

Hitting up a concert? We love our Satin Cami Dress in black paired with our Faux Snakeskin Blazer and some chunky gold hoops. Rock this look with a smokey eye and some red lipstick and you’ll be chillin’ with the band in no time. 

Your Birthday Needs This Summer Slip Dress

For all our summer babies out there, this one is for you. Feel like the belle of your birthday ball in our Satin Cowl Slip Dress. Choose from gunmetal, gold, or purple. This dress is so flattering, we suggest accessorizing it with minimal accessories. Keep it simple with studs or small hoop earrings, strappy heels, and a matching clutch. This is the perfect dress for that ‘gram photo you’re planning on casually dropping in honor of your special day and we’re here for it.

With so many ‘fits from one simple slip dress, having more than one in your rotation is a total no-brainer. Shop our selection of summer slip dresses in store or online at Forever21.com.
