Ah, the slip dress. What used to be consired lingerie (see: Carrie's naked dress or Cher Horowitz's "But Daddy! It's Calvin Klein!" dress) is now one of the most multi-purpose pieces of clothing you can possibly own. We've always known that it's great for warm weather (particularly, in my opinion, on a date night with a scrappy pair of stilettos and some statement bling) but you can also now wear your slip dress in the winter.
The key to making your slip dress transition easily from season to season is — say it with me now — layering. Whether it's a t-shirt, a chunky knit or a jean jacket all you need to do to wear a slip dress during the colder months is pair it with another article of clothing. And the best part? You definitely already own one, if not all, of these basics.
Always ahead of the fashion curve, some of our favorite celebrities have already figured out how to rock a slip dress year round. While we may not be wearing our version of the looks to sit front row at Paris Fashion Week or go on dates with former One Directioners, we can still definitely use them as inspiration. Here are 11 ideas for how to wear your slip dress in the winter.
1. With A T-shirt, Jacket, And Thigh High Boots
I wasn't kidding when I said layering is key. Take a page out of Kendall Jenner's book and pile it on with a t-shirt underneath and a coat on top.
2. Under A Sweater With A Jacket And Booties
A slip dress can be easily transformed into a slip skirt with the right additions. Opt for a slim ribbed knit, like Kourtney Kardashians, and a pair of low neutral booties.
3. With Fur
So, it kiiiind of looks like Kylie cut a slip dress in half (because, it's Kylie), but the styling here is definitely worth stealing.
4. Under A Chunky Pullover
The easiest way to dress up your favorite oversized sweater or dress down your favorite silk maxi dress.
5. With A Turtleneck
Layer a turtleneck under a slip... the more texture in either piece, the better.
6. With A Fur Stole
Keep with the boudoir-chic style of the slip and add a vintage-inspired fur stole. Bonus points for a bright, contrasting color like Suki Waterhouse's.
7. With A Bomber
Proof that you can wear a slip and wear all white after labor day.
8. With A Moto Jacket
Yes, Kim is slaying in her Céline slip/overcoat combo, but the real style star of this photo is baby Nori in her fringey moto jacket, silk slip and Vans.
9. With UGGs
Who cares if your legs are cold if your feet are this warm?!
10. With A Windbreaker
Who says a silky dress can't be sporty? Throw on a windbreaker and a pair of sneakers and you're basically ready for the gym.
11. With A Jean Jacket
Rough denim with a silky slip is heaven, straight up.
