How To Wear A Slip Dress In The Colder Months

Slip dresses were everywhere this summer but just because it’s getting colder it doesn’t mean you need to put them away until next year. Here are some easy ways to wear slip dresses in the colder months. 


Layering is key to making the most out your slip dress and the good thing is you can use pieces you already own to create cool, new looks. 


Short or Long-sleeved T-shirt Underneath

Wear a block-coloured t-shirt underneath and layer some necklaces for a casual yet still glamorous look that’s suitable for nearly any occasion.  

Jumper Over Top

Channel your favourite fashion blogger by wearing a cosy jumper over your slip dress, to make it look like a skirt. 

This, of course, works best for longer dresses but can also be done with short dresses provided that you wear a cropped jumper. 

Pair this look with some plain white trainers and don’t be surprised if you’re mistaken for an influencer. 


Tights and Boots

You can go one of two ways with this idea. Some slightly sheer tights and heeled boots will give you a classy casual look. 

You could go the other direction and wear some patterned tights and biker boots for an edgy look. 

This, of course, can also be mixed and matched with any of the other three ideas.

A Coat or Jacket

A long winter coat could be the perfect warm but stylish way to complete a night out look in the colder months

As many slip dresses are just one colour you can afford to spice up the look by wearing a patterned coat. 

For a more edgy look wear a slightly oversized leather or denim jacket. This won’t provide you with as much warmth as a winter coat however so you may want to wear some tights and biker boots too.
