I picked this dress from My friend Jane's closet. Such a sweet lovely girl..can you believe she let me
walk away with almost ten of her dresses. Given its length I knew for sure it was a dress I'd like to wear at night but since I don't club it would have to work for one of my type of events. This whole time I have been wondering could it be slip dress? It looks like one given the spaghetti straps, the style and the cut but the fabric is not the usual slip dress fabric and it lacks the touch of lace. So what do you call this particular dress, a little red dress?

Gladly, I don't have to know what it's called in order to style it. If you do know what its called, please educate me. 

Accessories - I bet this line is now getting boring around here, but keep you accessories to a minimum, Remember when Caitlin Jenner started wearing dresses and she wanted to wear all her accessories at once (I exaggerate) and Kim had to give her the talk.  Not only is it unflattering but its over bearing to the eye and makes you look like an indecisive person who cant even decide what accessories to keep on and what to leave at home for the day/night. So please only wear necessary accessories.

Give it a personal cover up touch- Throw on a denim jacket..well how about a fur coat, or a college jacket, even a woven sweater would do. Adding a personal touch to you look makes it stand out from the next person wearing a similar if not the exact same dress. While adding a denim or leather jacket will make you look edgier, a fur coat will give it an elegant twist.

This applies to the shoes too- The thing about a slip dress is you can wear them with sandals, for a chic and laid-back casual look, A pair of sneakers for a mores cool kid look or go for heels for a more put together vibe. Pick out you shoes depending on what vibe you want to give or look you want to achieve.

Skip the inner wear maybe? If you opt for a silk slip piece then you should know its going to be one of those dresses that make you feel like you should go bra-less coz the bra or underwear print doesn't look very appealing so why not the slip dress is inner after all? You could also wear it with very light inner wear. I speak more on this in my previous post 5 SECRETS TO LOOKING BANGING IN A BODYCON
  
What if I told you you could layer it over a tee - I was a little reluctant to mention this coz its not really my style but you could wear your slip dress over a tee for a very casual cool chic vibe. I see it a lot on social media paired with the Adidas or Yeezy sneakers.

Here is how I styled  this slip dress. How do you style yours?, tag me on pictures on social media and also drop me a line and lemme know.
