How to Wear a Slip Dress as a Skirt

So this is actually a slip dress that I got in the summer (summer of the slip dress, remember?). I eye’d it for so long then snagged it when Stone Cold Fox had a sale. This print is sold out now, but you can still get it in every color because SCF makes these dresses custom.

I knew it would be perfect for wedding szn (we have/had about 5 this year), and I was right. I wore this slip dress to the drinks celebration the night before a wedding, in some not-as-comfy shoes. The dress is so elegant by its self – I love that I found a new great way to wear it.

A big trend for the upcoming Fall season is slip skirts. Makes sense since slip dresses were so popular in Summer. I had decided I wanted to stop buying new pieces and since I got a bunch of new pieces during the Summer, I thought I would see if I had anything that would work.

As I was checking my closet, I found this dress. I knew it was perfect immediately because of the length, the material (pretty thin), and the colors! These colors scream FALL.

Now, this isn’t the first time I changed a slip dress into a slip skirt. Remember my look from last year’s #NYFW? I dressed up this slip skirt into a more elevated look. Paired it with sandal heels and puffed sleeves, this look can work for so many things: a nice dinner, work, a family party.
