In silk, cotton, satin, chiffon, with or without lace inserts, the slip dress is undoubtedly a very versatile lingerie item. But to avoid looking out of place, you have to learn how to wear it by finding the right combinations that adapt it to various occasions. Wide, fluid cut and with fairly thin straps, the slip dress is inspired by the petticoat, the underwear worn by our grandmothers between the twenties and the fifties, with the aim of making clothes slide better that otherwise would have stuck to the skin. In the second millennium the petticoat has evolved, becoming a minimal garment with a sexy and refined look, which has taken the place of the classic sheath dress and imposed itself on the catwalks of the most famous designers in the world.
The different ways to wear the slip dress make it a passe-partout dress to show off both on informal occasions and on more serious occasions. Perfect during the day under an overcoat from which you can barely glimpse, it can embody the sophistication in the evening if worn alone: in short, this dress with a classic taste enhances femininity giving the woman a refined and never banal look, especially if combined to the most appropriate accessories.
Winter 2018 also marked the return of the backpack , the practical shoulder accessory in vogue in the nineties and which appears renewed by colored applications and quilted fabrics, especially in shades of red, beige and black . With a white t-shirt, denim jacket, sneakers and backpack, our minimal dress becomes perfect for a jaunty street look, while the same dress acquires a more aggressive look under a black leather jacket with studded boots. For women who don’t want to be too much in the spotlight but like to stand out from the crowd, the slip dress will be the perfect garment to wear under an oversized coat paired with moccasins.. Thanks to their comfort, the timeless leather loafers are the favorite shoes of the woman who is always in a hurry. The bohemian chic, or simply boho , look is very varied because it is made up of elements that come from the hippie world and the extravagant world of street artists (in fact, the bohemians). Returning to the fore in 2005, after a timid appearance in the early 1990s, this informal look is achieved by pairing a floral kimono with gladiator sandals .A clear reference to the nineties and made up of the slip dress worn with flat sandals or sneakers, for a style that is halfway between sporty and rock chic. The same outfit is also ideal in the evening, especially if enriched with a showy bijoux. In conclusion: how can we not talk about the most beautiful day? In this case the slip dress takes on the different shades of white, becomes longer, shaped and with a wide neckline that will leave room only for a tiny necklace. To avoid the dreaded lingerie effect, it will be appropriate to embellish the dress by wearing a silk veil edged in lace and a colorful but not too pompous bouquet.
