Don’t you love the feeling of soft satin around your body? Typically we avoid satin dresses because they have with so little structure and hardly any seams and we believe that they are not flattering. That is partially true. Depending on your body type they might not be the best silhouette to highlight your assets but on a different context it is a very chic and feminine dress. Being so minimal itself and yet so delicate it doesn’t necessarily highlight your sexuality but on the contrary it accentuates the simplicity and confidence within you.
how do I style it so that I don’t look half-naked
If you are already “sold” on the slip dress the question is: “how do you style it so that I don’t look half-naked”? I know it’s not easy to style a slip dress and not look half-naked or too fancy or too lingerie. The latest trend on slip dresses is to put it over a t-shirt or even a loose shirt. For those of you who dare to wear a slip dress on a daily basis this is the coolest way to do it. Regardless of whether you are going on a date or for coffee wearing your slip dress over a t-shirt will make you feel so much more comfortable. Often times, to feel less naked on a slip dress we top it with a cardigan or jacket. That’s a good way to go about it but the main limitations are that you are forced to hide your silhouette most of the time and if for whatever reason you want to take the top off, you may feel shockingly exposed.
Styling Slip dress for an Occasion
Depending on the occasion you can upgrade the overall look by choosing better quality of a t-shirt; maybe a jersey material or even silk and pair it with a nice clutch and a pair of elegant high heeled sandals.
Being so minimal itself and yet so delicate it doesn’t necessarily highlight your sexuality but mostly the simplicity and confidence within you.
