The great thing about a Slip Dress, is how versatile it is. There are many ways you can style a slip dress but a few suggestions would be to layer it under something sheer (like a flowy dress), over your favorite tee, or of course all on its own!
It's a great piece for everyone because you can really make it in your own personal style. Pop on a leather jacket and sneakers for a cool everyday look or some heels and a blazer for date night!
The Saltwater Slip is a great layering piece which looks great in casual looks. Layer over blouses, t-shirts and roll necks depending on the season and also try wearing a sweater over the top or even a t-shirt tied in a knot at the waist! Super cute with sneakers, sandals or boots.
A slip dress can look really elegant and here are some lovely options to give it a dressed up look. Made in slinky fabrics like silk and satins, layer over matching shirts, duster jackets, sunglasses and strappy sandals or heels.
