An Easy and Stylish Way to Wear Slip Dresses

Happy Monday, friends! So, I finally hopped on the slip dress trend. And I have to say – I love the versatility! Here, I’m sharing my favorite way (so far) to wear the slip dress. Just throw a lightweight spring sweater over the slip dress, add some sneakers, and you’re good to go!

A note about this sweater… I just adore the sporty chic vibes of Rag & Bone so much. Their clothes are bound to make anyone feel instantly cooler. And I’ve bought a similar boyfriend style sweater from Rag & Bone in season’s past. But this one is different. While it might look heavy-ish, it’s actually a nice lightweight sweater, perfect for spring. It has a loose knit that provides breathability, but yet it provides that coverage you might still need in the spring weather. The sweater is, at once, slouchy and stylish.

    I love the way you styled this, Carrie. I’m not huge on the slip dress trend, but the way you styled this made this trend much more wearable for me. I’ll have to give it a shot!

      Thanks so much, Sarah! I’m the same – hadn’t gotten on the slip dress trend.

      But as they say, necessity is the mother of invention – and this was an idea I had for accommodating my growing bump.

      Glad you like it. 🙂
