'90s Throwback



I'm admittedly quite late to the slip dress trend, but maybe because I'm not much of a dress person in general. In any case, I'm quite enjoying the slip dress as layering piece deal that's been making its rounds. It's just easy and I don't have to worry about flashing someone because of how low the slip dress is. It's casual enough but feels like I put just the right amount of effort in my outfit. Plus it's not so pajama-like this way.



There are sooo many slip dresses out there, but this particular one is a Matches exclusive. I've worn it like this (over my favorite tee), and also with a cropped bomber and sneakers for a super '90s look. For a less precious material but still a nice slinky feel to it, I love this dark olive number. Ooh, and how about this velvet version with a high slit? Very fun. Anyway, the options out there are endless, but a super simple silk black one never hurts to have.

P.S. You can find this Gucci belt here!

  4. I really love how you've made the slip dress your own! Such a lovely way of styling it that I don't think would ever have crossed my mind :)

    1. I'm not positive about the Paris ones -- I might have had something else then, but yes Twist of Fate is a really pretty neutral and probably nice on all skin tones.
