How To: Style a Slip Dress

Ok, so you’ve purchased a slip dress, now what? With a dress this simple, it’s all about the accessories and of course, the shoes. Dress it up or dress it down, either way a basic slip dress really will be your go-to this season. See how our ‘Girl in Focus’ Kathryn Senkow styles a slip dress for a night out with the girls.

Edita Dress

Make sure your jewelry doesn't overwhelm the dress. This delicate yet still substantial necklace pairs beautiful with this simple slip dress.

Orchadia Bomber Jacket

When selecting something to wear over your slip dress, it's important not to weigh the dress down and crush it's airy feel.
