It may have started as undergarments, but the classic satin slip dress has, for decades, been a fashion staple.
And this isn’t just because they are super sexy, either. This style of dress can be worn up or down (or short or long) depending on how you accessorise them. They are also light and breezy, making them perfect for summer, and are a low-effort garment that delivers a stunning look each and every time.
Here are six *gorg* takes on the classic slip dress by local fashion brands.
1. Pair with a Blazer
Take the slinky slip dress from sexy to smart-casual the easy way by adding a blazer and a slick pair of shades. Looking sharp!

Dress your glam gown down by adding a fresh pair of white sneakers and a convenient crossbody bag. Effortlessly cool vibes FTW.

3. Play with Print
For a fun take on this summer fave, why not choose a slip dress that has an unconventional print or bold pops of colour?

4. Remove Some Length
Show off some leg by taking your hemline up a few notches! Wear a pair of bold below-the-knee boots with a short dress to add some edge.

5. Add Some Accessories
Let your satin slip shine even more by adding some bling. A chain belt can accentuate your waistline and gold accessories will elevate your look.
