Your Summer Slip Dress, 4 Ways

Layer a linen top over a silky slip for instant polish. Square-toe sandals, a sleek bag and a chain necklace guarantee a modern finish.

Yellow and purple make for a uniquely punchy palette—we love this combo for cocktails, wedding-guest attire or date night.

For a street-style aesthetic, try a linen blazer and sneakers with your simple slip. Keep things summer-centric by adding a beaded bag and unique earrings into the mix.

Think outside the box and style your slip as a camisole—it easily layers underneath a fuller midi skirt (sans bunching or weird lines). Ladylike accessories temper the vivid palette.
