It’s safe to say that we can officially proclaim the dog days of summer—we’ve glided by our winter blues, skipped through spring, sidestepped into the glory days of all things summer glow, and somehow landed into what feels like the pits of hell. But who’s complaining—a little sweat never hurt anyone, right? With summer’s robust grip around us, it’s no wonder many are puzzled as to what one should put on if anything at all. Trust, we have contemplated just baring it all on numerous occasions.
Rather than letting it all hang, out we’ve opted for an old favorite the black slip dress, indeed a staple that withstands the test of time. This bodycon slip dress not only requires minimal energy, but it’s also multifaceted. Style it casually or unleash your sassier side.
In this case, we’re all about ease when it comes to facing the wave of heat that hits you once you open your front door or step foot onto public transit. The square neckline is a flattering silhouette along any woman’s clavicle, slimming the shoulders and framing the face. Pair your slip dress with white sneakers of your choosing, a chain messenger bag, and oversized sunglasses to hide the lack of makeup (we don’t blame you) and sweaty disposition you’ll probably end up in by the end of a long day. Jewelry is optional on this one, but a few dainty layered necklaces, studs or gold hoop earrings will have you covered.
