How To Wear A Slip Dress When You're Going Out OUT
Slip dresses are no longer restricted to the bedroom, people. And who better to prove the point than style extraordinaire, Alexa Chung?
The fashion maven hosted the Villoid Garden Tea Party in Los Angeles and decided to take her bedwear out for the night. The slinky dress by NK iMode features red lace that clashes with the fuchsia pink satin, making for a quintessentially ‘90s vibe.
You can get Alexa’s very dress by clicking on the Exact Match but QUICK because it’s sure to sell out fast. Which is why I’ve compiled a Shopping Edit that’ll take you from the sheets to the streets in no time…
THE DRESSR EDIT
So you see, sleepwear as outerwear is nothing to be scared of. A slip dress is like a blank canvas that you can style any which way. Alexa teamed hers with grungy Converse trainers to keep it casual and tone down the provocativeness, but if you’re off to a cocktail party, just add a pair of strappy heels and you’re ready to hit the dance floor.
If you’re not so keen on flashing the flesh, try layering it over a turtleneck for an office-appropriate outfit or wear with a sharp tuxedo coat and flats that’ll ensure you steer clear of hussy territory. Et voila, you’re rocking a slip dress without looking like you just stepped out of your boudoir.
