5 Ways To Style A Slip Dress

Ever-shorter trend cycles mean that so many fashion fads are in and out of the spotlight before we’ve even had the chance to really appreciate them. Every once in a while though, one slips through the cracks and sticks around. The slip dress is one of them (see what we did there?). 

The slinky slip dress first appeared as a fashion item in its own right in the 90s and represented the sartorial minimalism of the decade. We can thank fashion icons like Kate Moss for its existence in our wardrobes to this day. 


While it has drifted in and out of fashion, this trusty wardrobe staple has always maintained its position as a timeless classic. For spring/summer 22, we’re looking for fresh ways to style this chic piece by incorporating some of our favourite shoe trends of the season into the looks. Read on to find out our favourite ways to style a slip dress. 


With Chunky Sandals

A chunky sandal and slip dress combination is the ultimate model-off-duty look. The undone, androgynous feel of a chunky sandal balances out the softness of the slip dress to create the ultimate casual outfit. Accessorize the look with gold jewellery and a denim jacket or chunky knit for cooler days.

With Sneakers

The ultimate cool-girl outfit - this look exudes an effortless ease that never feels like you’re trying too hard. Inject some personality into your outfit by picking out a pair of sneakers that best matches your personality. We’re partial to a modern chunky silhouette, but anything goes. Accessorize your look with oversized sweaters or denim jackets.

With Strappy Heels

To maintain the soft, feminine and ethereal essence of the slip dress, style yours with a pair of strappy heeled sandals or mules that feels very reminiscent of the 90s. You can even opt for a pair of elevated, barely-there flat sandals if you prefer the comfort that affords. This is the perfect wedding guest look.

With Ankle Boots

Ankle boots are the perfect way to toughen up your feminine slip dresses, especially if you opt for a grittier style like combat boots. But even a classic pair of ankle booties will add an effortlessly chic touch to your daywear…or eveningwear. Break out your favourite leather jacket to finish off the look.

With Pointy-Toe Pumps

They don’t need to be sky-high heels but opting for a pointy-toe pump is one of the easiest ways to round out your polished ensemble. Going for a lower kitten heel is perfect for bringing that je ne sais quoi. Accessorize your look for statement jewellery and throw a blazer over your shoulders to combat the office AC or chilly evenings.
