Slip dresses are simple and can be purchased in many colors. A slip dress is easy to transition between being in the office and going outside.

When you’re in the office, you can wear a long cardigan of some type to make it office-appropriate. When you’re wearing it out into the summer weather, you can either wear the slip dress by itself or make the look edgier by wearing a leather motorcycle jacket.

When you wear a slip dress is the best time to wear bold and chunky jewelry. The muted color or the bright color of the dress that you’re wearing can allow your jewelry to be the standout piece of the outfit.

6. Try The Mix and Match
