How to wear a Slip Dress when 30+

I didn’t do the slip dress thing when it was “in” during the 90’s…I was too busy with my vintage mens 501’s from local denim institution Jac ‘n’Jean. And now it’s reemerged as a huge trend, I feel I’m too old/not slender enough to pull it off despite loving the look. Marie Claire posted this vid on the weekend; “The only dress you’ll need this Spring” and I immediately reposted it as I loved the different ways the basic slip dress can be worn…

  1. with tee, bomber & sneakers
  2. with shirt & mid heels
  3. with a sheer top, statement earrings & mules

Marie Claire have shared their best buys to recreate these looks here, but this is my take for you xx

the dress:

The Fifth Age of Aquarius Dress by The Fifth Label at Jac’n’Jean $49 (sale), midi length, relaxed fit in a mid weight (read not too thin & clingy!) fabric with adjustable straps #alltheticks

the tops:

Sebastion Shirt in Navy & White from Bohemian Traders $95.20 (sale) is slightly sheer & slim fitting with a neck tie that can used to belt the dress in for shape for a more work friendly look. Pair with black ankle boots or mid heeled pumps.
