eShakti recently contacted me and asked me to style and review one of their dresses. I've partnered with them in the past (you can see my previous reviews here and here), and once again, the ordering and customization process was seamless. One of the unique features of this online clothing retailer is that you can either order off their standard sizing charts or enter your measurements for a custom fit.  You pick your style, sizing option, and from there, you can choose the length, and make adjustments to the sleeves and neckline.

eShakti began as a small website offering basic cottons and modestly embellished pieces. Today, they are an international fashion design company making custom clothing. They offer everything from classic pieces to boho, sweater knits to special occasions, and they also now have a value line! Their fashions have been featured in Redbook, Glamour, and Oprah Magazine. They offer both style and fit customization for women size 0 through 36.  And what's unique is that they do not stock any sizes. Each style - whether standard sized, custom styled or custom sized is cut to order based on your height measurement. This ensures a "truer" fit. They ship directly to you, which keeps their fashions affordable. After I placed my order, my dress was delivered in less than 10 days.  

ways to style a slip dress

Despite my dislike for snakes, the snake print has won my heart, and I've wanted to incorporate more of it into my wardrobe. It was a little hard to narrow down my options, but I decided that a snake print slip dress would be most versatile and something I can style from season to season. The easiest way to winterize a slip dress is by adding layers, so I layered the dress over a black turtleneck top. Fleece tights kept my legs warm, and my combat boots (found in my daughter's closet) gave this outfit a bit of edge!

Style tips:
  • Swap a long-sleeve top or turtleneck for a chambray button-down shirt.
  • Layer a chunky sweater over your slip dress. The sweater should be slightly oversized and hit just below your hips. You could also belt it to give the look more shape.
  • A leather jacket is one of my favorite go-to layers, and it always gives an outfit an edgy vibe.
  • For an unexpected look, layer over jeans and a fitted tee and knot the dress on one side of the bottom.

Custom clothing does not have to be expensive. eShakti believes that all women have the right to wear affordable fashion that is made for them and makes them look their absolute best. And the process is fun! You can see a dress morph right before your eyes to exactly what you want, whatever your style preference.
