02 Jan How to style a satin slip dress modestly
This is another one of those trendy things that has been big for the past year…wearing lingerie out on the streets has become such a normality. When does a slip dress become appropriate to wear publicly and how do you not make it look skimpy…I am have been feeling very experimental lately and I figured now’s the time to try out the satin slip dress and see how I make it work out in the real world. I didn’t want to have anything too out there nor did I want anything floral-y or lace-y. I wanted something I can work with as a start and build an outfit around it. This mustard dress from Zara was the perfect middle for a slip dress and mustard is one of my favourite colors anyway. So here’s how I attempted this trend!
The dress to be quite honest was not such a great quality and for the price, especially at Zara, you want to have something well made….but then again, their production system is so quick that quality is no longer the main concern. I wore this dress with a few different ideas in mind but this was one of my favourite because I still maintained my modesty. Adding heels was an option that I kept open but I felt like I was too exposed to the world and so, putting on boots seemed quite fitting and appropriate and the result was interesting.
I also got the argyle sweater from Zara and although it’s very thick and well-made, I didn’t appreciate how cropped it is. Why is everything so cropped lately? I mean, not because I am Muslim or anything, but no one needs to be wearing a cropped sweater in -14C ̊weather. I combined it with the dress because the colors went so well together and having the dress under it meant more warmth.
Along with sweaters and all things winter, boots are my thing and I wish I could wear boots all year long (not that anyone is stopping me) but it would be just too much!
Although I had fun styling this dress, it just wasn’t me and I ended up returning it because it makes no sense just having it there hanging in my wardrobe. How do you guys feel about the slip dress?! Is it a yay or a nay?!
