Over the last few months I’ve loved the look of a black slip dress with a chunky sweater or jacket layered on top. I avoided the look for a while though. I had no idea where could I find a “slip dress” that didn’t look like lingerie and was wearable in the middle of the day. I was also worried if I could even pull it off.
But when I saw that my friend Taylor had worn it, I had to go for it! If you missed her post on the black slip dress, check it out here, seriously SO cute.
In the back of my mind I knew that I had a black slip dress somewhere in my closet that was meant to be worn underneath an old Juicy Couture dress (throwback). I dug through and finally found it!
It’s the perfect length of not being too short to go out in public like some slip dresses might be. Bonus points that it wasn’t sheer at all. Seriously y’all have no idea how relieved I was that I didn’t have to go hunting for one.
I’m not gonna lie, the week that I wore it for the first time I literally tried it on 3 different days before I actually wore it. It was still hot out and too hot for the sweater that I wore with it in this outfit or a light jacket. Seriously it was like 80 degrees out. I ended up pairing it with a light camel colored short sleeve sweater.
Once I got out of my head and just went for it I LOVED it. Its obvi super comfortable and I love how chic and simple the black slip dress is.
As y’all know I love wearing black and grey in the fall so I quickly realized this is going to be a new fall staple paired with some booties. And yes, I’m wearing my trusty Sole Society booties.
The booties are the Romy style from Sole Society and I got them last year so I was worried they wouldn’t be in stock again. But lucky enough they’re one of their staples and they’re back again!!
I seriously DESTROY my boots so on my list of things to do is to buy a brand new pair. And I’m pretty sure they’re just under $100 as most things on Sole Society are.
A few of the slip dresses that I’ve seen out there, that yes are meant to be worn at dresses (I’m pretty sure I even saw one at Banana the other day) might be a tad bit sheer so I really recommend that your layering piece be long enough to cover your butt.
The look of a slip dress that’s maybe about knee length with a military jacket is also super chic. The two styles balance themselves out perfectly.
By pairing it with an ankle bootie like my Sole Society faves OR my Rag & Bone faves (because who doesn’t love a Rag & Bone bootie – that’s why fall even exists right?!) you really can’t go wrong.
I love the solid black, but I think I might be on the look out now for an olive green one to change it up a bit!
