I was a touch alarmed when, about six months ago, WhoWhatWear announced that t-shirts under slip dresses were “back in.” What the hell? I thought we all tacitly agreed in the early aughts that they were a hideous combination and put them to rest along with scrunchies and those Steve Madden stretchy black platform sandal thingies. (Also, butterfly clips.)
While I don’t think I can get behind the t-shirt-under-a-slip-dress situation, the idea of a slip dress is growing increasingly attractive. Minimalist in a 90s throwback kind of way. Sexy, sophisticated, alluring. I can dig it. And I like the vibe the two chic peas below–slinky slip dress underneath a boxy/masculine leather jacket or blazer. Opposites attract.
For a more formal event, this Zimmermann dress is IT.
This Cuyana style ($260-$315 depending on material) is quite the head-turner, as well. P.S. Have you noticed that Cuyana has graduated from solely selling high quality, well-priced leather goods and is now selling beautiful pieces of clothing? I’m obsessed with this bomber in the blush color.
But if we’re talking a versatile piece at a great pricepoint? This Line + Dot stunner in its gorgeous lilac hue ($119). So hot.
P.P.S. I’m ordering a new toy for Tilly, and I will only buy these Fluff + Tuff stuffed squeaky animals for her. More of my dog favorites here.
