Spied on the Street: Master the Slip With This One Tip

Now this is how you master the tricky slip dressing trend. Had the ruffle collar top not been sandwiched between bare skin and the utterly cool cutout slip dress, we’d have a look bordering on too hot for daytime wear. However, the strategically conservative high-neck long sleeve blouse balances what would be a sultry piece of negligee and tempers it for a perfectly pulled off daytime ensemble. Now don’t get us wrong; we’re not entirely advising against a hint of skin for a sassy summer look. The architectural hemline allows a pop of thigh to add intrigue and drama to the overall ‘fit, and a flatform sandal adds just the right amount of desired height to keep the effect slightly elevated, in a literal and metaphorical sense.

Can we talk about this hands-free smartphone holder slash handbag? It’s giving us a major Cher-Horowitz-ducking-gym-class moment, and we cannot get enough. This elegant yet bold (highly evolved) descendant of the fanny pack is decidedly convenient, and a must have for all women on the go. The oversized buckle and strong chain links keep the bag from being too delicate and convince us that this singular purpose pouch has got what it takes to keep our stuff safe.

This is just one of Alyssa Coscarelli‘s looks we’re aiming to emulate this summer—how about you? Goodness knows, Refinery29 editors give good street style.
