There are a few dress styles I just simply love and tend to gravitate towards. And lately I’ve noticed a silky slip dress is definitely one of those. I picked up this pretty salmon pink slip dress from Abercrombie (along with this pretty white dress) and have been itching to wear them. The thing I love about a slip dress is how versatile they can be! You may remember this post on 3 ways to style a slip dress. The rules still apply to this midi version and here’s two ways to style it for summer.
For this slip dress, I’m personally doing a size medium. The small fit but I felt more comfortable in the medium. If you’re in-between sizes, I’d recommend sizing up. You can also check out my Abercrombie & Fitch sizing review post here. Plus, there is currently a big A&F sale going on now so be sure to snag this dress before it sells out here!
Two Ways To Style A Slip Dress For Summer
A Little Dressed Up
A simple way to dress up a slip dress is to add a little sandal. I love this low block heel from Marc Fisher. It’s comfortable and also a bit dainty and feminine. Perfect to pair with a slip dress. To top it off, a little floral denim jacket. This one is super old, but a closet favorite. It’s perfect for a light layer and goes great with dresses, or just jeans and a tee. And summer always calls for a straw bag. This Hat Attack bag is going on 3 years I think and has traveled all over the world too. It’s a closet must have.

Slip Dress Outfit For Casual Days
A go to trick to dressing just about anything down is adding a denim jacket (around your waist is a great way to create a bit of shape too). Then add a great sneaker. You could do a Converse, Reeboks, Vejas, whatever white sneaker you like. I love the combination of a sexy slip dress paired with a more street-style sneaker. This would also be fun with a leather jacket but it’s just a little too warm for that right now. You could also layer under the slip dress a simple white tee for a super casual Parisian inspired vibe.
