Have you tried wearing your underwear as outerwear yet? (We know. Sounds kinda crazy.) If not, the best way is to approach with caution. Baby steps, if you will. Us ladies need to maximize our closet space, so why not smartly style your slips that are meant For Indoor Use Only, and get twice the use out of it? Smart and fashionable – we like that.
Some of us aren’t ready for the risque corset we tend to see at ‘tha club’, and the laced up look definitely doesn’t work for daytime events. So, let’s ease into this with a lingerie staple that easily resembles a dress – The almighty slip.
Now, you’re probably thinking, oh I couldn’t! It’s too sheer! The headlight effect is so real! Think again. The right slip will have the right amount of coverage, and granted there’s a bit of a chilly breeze outside, layering is key.
Slips are versatile as hell! They can be worn as a dress, top or cute layering piece under dresses we wouldn’t wear for evening otherwise. (Cut to that floral dress we wore once last summer and realized it was see-thru in some embarrassing Instagram photo. Yep, fashion faux pas happen to all of us…) Here are three simple ways to wear your slips outside of the bedroom without looking insane.
1. As a Dress
This one’s simple. You know, pull it over your head and you’re ready to take on the day kind of simple. But add a belt to cinch your waist, and top it off with your favorite jacket or long trench, and you’re 10x the fashionista you woke up as.
2. As a Top
Pop on that slip with a pair of jeans. Pull most of the fabric to the side and tuck, tuck, tuck until the weird gathers form a relaxed tank fit. Voila!
3. As a Layering Piece
All of those shorter sheer dresses you’ve held onto through the Fall are ready for a second time around. Slip into your slip and layer your spring-y dress over top. The slip should poke out at the bottom, or at least around the chest for a cute lacy detail – and the extra layer doesn’t hurt when the temps drop!
So there you have it! All of the awesome ways you can re-purpose your sexy slips for a cute daytime look (or three).
