In my post for La Dolce Vita this month, I talked about how I’ve been styling some of my favorite separates for the holidays, particularly a blazer and leather pant. I’m elaborating on that here, this time introducing the versatile slip dress. It is truly an indispensable piece to have.
I love the elegant flow the streamlined silhouette creates. I prefer a length well below the knee, but not to the floor. I rarely wear a slip dress on its own though, and prefer to use it as a base to layer more substantial pieces, particularly a blazer. The contrast of tailored with soft works so well.
If I need to layer further for cooler weather, a slim turtleneck and even leggings fit the bill. I’ll take the look up or down a notch depending on the shoe, making it dressy with something pretty or casual with a substantial boot.
