This summer, the fashion world fell in love with slip dresses. Long or short, simple or printed—lingerie-inspired looks felt perfect when the weather was too hot to handle. But don’t mistake this for a summer fling. Paired with a tee, or worn with jeans, or under a roomy cashmere sweater, figure-skimming slips are set to be serious players in fall’s cool-weather layering game. But first you’ve got to learn the basics of how to wear them, right? See how NYC’s fashion week crowd brought sleepwear to the streets earlier this month, and adventure on from there.
Print Play. Boost your layering game by mixing (not matching) prints. A colorful graphic tee complements a classic neutral pattern.
Ruffled Up. Slips can pair with more than just t-shirts. Try a crisp blouse for a more formal take on the trend.
Cool Kicks. Dressed down and comfortable is the best way to be. Pair a slip dress with crisp kicks for an effortless, cool-girl vibe.
Cinch it. Don’t be afraid to play with silhouettes. Toss on a belt to give your layers some shape.
Keep it Simple. Let it Shine. Here, the nightgown meets the disco dress. While it’s still warm out, a shimmery silver slip transitions beautifully from day to night.
