Wearing intimates in public has been seen as a taboo for a while. They’re supposedly meant for at- home purposes, or covered up. However, recently intimates have been trending in public. Bras, corsets, bustiers, slips, all of them are now acceptable to show in public (if styled the right way, of course). Be dazzled bras can be worn to music festivals, sexy bras can be worn under sheet tops, bustiers are now tops, and slips are awesome layering pieces.
Honestly, I never though I’d ever be able to get my hands on the perfect slip dress, but I finally found one. I’m 5’0, so it’s hard to find one the perfect length that won’t swallow me up. This one is from Sheinside. It has two layers, so it’s completely opaque from top to bottom. I wanted more sheer-ness at the ends, so I just pinned the under layer up a bit. Some may argue that it is, and isn’t an intimated, but only because it’s so basic. Most intimates have lace on it, and I’d love to get my hands on one as a challenge to style, but I have yet to find it.
In the winter, I feel like the best layering pieces are chunky sweaters. They dress down any outfit. You can turn an intimate slip dress, so a casual layering piece. I added some necklaces to help elongate my figure, and heeled booties to make me look and feel taller. As for the stockings, I added them for a little sexy touch.
How To Style Intimate Slip Dresses
This slip dress can double up as a skirt if you wear a sweater on top (cropped or non cropped), or even under a very translucent dress to make it more modest. If you add an oversized blazer, you can make this appropriate for business. Don’t forget- you can also wear this intimate as a top and wear pants under. You don’t always have to bare so much skin. The possibilities for this slip dress are endless. I can’t wait to style it in many other ways.
