A fashion staple that I think will always stick around is a classic, elegant slip dress.

If you’re someone who loves to dress in a more feminine way and feel your best when wearing something silky and simple, a slip dress should be an essential part of your wardrobe.

Slip dresses aren’t only meant for fun nights out or warm weather. They can be dressed up, dressed down, and worn year-round for various occasions.

If you have a slip dress that’s been sitting in your closet ignored or want to add a few into your outfit rotation, here are a few ways you can style a slip dress and make it one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe.

Dress it down

Although slip dresses may make you feel like you must pair them with more formal accessories, wearing them casually is fun. Start by pairing the slip dress with your favorite pair of sneakers and your go-to casual jacket if it’s a little chilly out. Denim and leather jackets look especially great over slip dresses.

Add your go-to pair of sunglasses, minimalist jewelry, and your favorite tote bag, and you’re good to go!

Dress it up

If you like to own a few solid options for nights out or more formal events, a lovely slip-dress is a great thing to have. Because they’re usually made of nicer fabrics like silk, they’re easy to dress up. Wear your slip dress with a nice pair of heels and some dainty jewelry.
