I’ve shared before that fall is my favorite season. And in Chicago it’s even better. I love running around the city with a cool breeze while wearing my favorite fall trends. One of the trends I’m loving right now and wanted to share for Trending Friday is slip dresses.
Have you seen slip dresses taking over your Instagram feed? I have and I’m loving it. If you’re thinking slip dresses are only for special occasions, let me explain. I promise you’ll be clicking “add to cart” by the time you’re done reading this post.
Why I’m Loving Slip Dresses
First, you can layer a slip dress in so many ways, which is ideal for fall. You can wear a basic tee or long sleeve blouse under, or layer a light knit on top depending what the temperature is. In Chicago, it tends to be chilly in the mornings and then heats up by the afternoon so wearing a tee underneath and a sweater on top allows you to work with the temperature all day long.
I love the sweater over the slip dress look because then the dress can also double as a skirt. Don’t be afraid to layer tops over dresses. It makes them more versatile and you can get more bang for your buck.
As for shoes, the options are pretty endless there as well. If you want to keep your look casual, pair your slip dress with an elevated pair of sneakers. I’d definitely wear my Adidas with a slip dress (you know I love my Adidas sneakers). If you want to dress it up a little bit more, I’d go with a good pair of mules. Mules are the perfect transitional shoe so they’ll work great.
Are you loving slip dresses as much as me? I linked some options for you to shop if you’re feeling the need to add one (or two) to your wardrobe.
