The slip dress has made a comeback and it is the perfect closet staple to wear all year round. It suits everyone and is so easy to put on.

Satin dresses can flatter any shape and you can dress it up or down for every season. Add some accessories and match with heels or sneakers and you are ready. Add a sweater in winter and a t-shirt underneath for spring.

Here is a great selection of ways to wear a slip dress to suit you.

Black Blazer

Adding a black blazer to a slip dress will give the look instant class. It is such a sophisticated look and will keep you warm while jumping from one meeting to another. In the evening, you can take off the blazer to show a little skin.

T-shirt On Top

You can put a cool band t-shirt on top of a slip dress and pair it with cool sneakers for a casual look. This will look great at a concert or a BBQ with some friends.

Long-sleeved Top Underneath

Pair the dress with a long-sleeved top underneath for instant glam. If you don’t like showing off your arms this could be the best combination for you.


Adding a belt to your slip dress can give you instant shape and it is a great accessory to add excitement to a plain dress.


A great look is to add white sneakers and a denim jacket to dress down the dress. It is such a great look but you can change to heels in the evening to go out to a party.
