10 ways to get more wear out of a slip dress

Here's how to lower the cost per wear of that sexy little slip.

Slip dresses are one of the hottest trend pieces. But with party season done and dusted and our Australian winter evenings just getting chillier, a slip might not seem like the best investment right now.

On the contrary, a slip dress is one of the most chameleon-like items of clothing you can own. You can wear a slip just about anywhere if you style it the right way. With 90s style making a resurgence in the fashion world - bringing with it all kinds of layering techniques - there's never been a better time to be the proud owner of a slip dress.

Add a jacket or a cardi. Layer with a tee or stripes. The ways to style your slip to get more winter and daytime wear are endless. Here are 10 of the coolest and most interesting ways to wear a slip dress thanks to Pinterest.

1. Layer with leather

Grunge up a slip dress by adding a leather jacket. The little extra coverage makes your outfit more appropriate to wear during the day.

2. Add a white tee

Adding a white T-shirt underneath a slip makes the look more casual and totally appropriate for daytime lunching or even for the office.

3. Play with plaid

Experiment with a plaid shirt. Tie it around your waist or wear it over the top with the buttons undone. 90's style is one the key trends of the moment and plaid is one of the easiest ways to add a little 90's flavour to the what you're wearing.

4. Try a turtle neck

Adding a turtle neck gives you the option of wearing your slip in the dead of winter. Plus, it looks effortlessly cool.

5. Wear your slip over pants

Emma Watson did it at the Golden Globes a few years back and if it's good enough for Emma, it's good enough for us. Plus, it looks hot.

6. Stripe it up

Fact: Breton stripes go with everything. Especially slip dresses. Make your look even more chic by adding a striped top.

7. Get cosy with a cardi

Adding a cardi makes slip dresses winter and autumn appropriate. It makes for an all occasions outfit.

8. Boost it with a band tee

Take your dressy, evening-wear slip and add a band tee. And voila, you now have an on trend, 90s, wear-everywhere outfit.

9. Pull over a jumper

Adding a jumper over your sexy, low-cut slip means you can wear it during the day and during the colder months too.

10. Give your slip the cold shoulder

Remember all those cute off the shoulder tops you bought? Yes, you can wear them under your slip dress too.
