Maybe I’m a little nuts to be going outside in a slip dress at this time of year… But it’s all in the name of fashion right? These photos were actually taken a few weeks earlier (although I was still cold, I admit). Anyway, wearing a slip dress without looking like you’re ready for bed can be a bit difficult. Here are my tips for what to wear with a silk slip dress:

1. Pair it with something casual
I like to juxtapose the slinkiness of a slip dress with a casual piece, like these loafer slides. It makes it seem more effortless and less like a nightgown.

2. Add a knit
An oversize knit adds texture and also keeps you warm (very key 🙂 ).

3. Wear Spanx!
I am a huge fan of Spanx, no matter what size you are. Silk can be hard to wear and Spanx just smoothes everything out so the silk lies beautifully on your body. I highly recommend investing in a pair! (PS this is not sponsored).

    Yes, I’m in the market for the perfect slip dress. I love Cuyana’s version. So, I have to ask, what spanx are your go-to style? I have looked at them so many times and I just can’t figure out what to get. or what size to get. I’m a 4 or 6 in dresses. Now that I’m pushing 40, I really think I NEED to get something to wear under my fitted dresses.
    Love how you styled this slip dress, and I’m dying for those slides.
    XO, Gina

      They fit to size, these were just when I first bought them and hadn’t stretched them out yet! Because they’re leather, they will stretch out to fit your foot better 🙂
