Summer Slip Dress Outfits



A black slip dress is a classic wardrobe staple that always looks chic no matter how you style it. Slip dresses are super versatile and flattering on every body type. Not only does this minimalist dress looks great on its own, but there are also endless possibilities for layering them. Another advantage is that almost every type of shoe, from sandals to sneakers to booties, goes with them. So you can take your dress from season to season. Today I wanted to show you six slip dress outfits for summer. These are my favorite ways to style them for warm weather.


My slip dress is from Target (shopping link at end of the post), and with the budget-friendly price tag of $25, the cost per wear will be pennies. If you’re not a fan of black, it comes in seven other color options. Whether heading to the farmer’s market, brunch with your girlfriends, or date night, I’ve got you covered with six slip dress outfits for summer.


Summer Slip Dress Outfits to Copy

Outfit 1 –

Wear your slip dress by itself with a gold chain necklace and statement sandals.

Outfit 2 –

A classic white button-up tied at the waist gives the slip dress a casual but chic vibe.

Outfit 3 –

For a fresh look, top the slip dress with a white blazer. The contrast between the black and white instantly makes it summery.

Outfit 4 –

Layering a band tee over the slip dress gives it an edgy look. Tying it slims and defines your waist.

Outfit 5 –

You can never go wrong with topping a slip dress with a denim jacket. It’s a great alternative to a cardigan.

Outfit 6 –

For a more modest look, layer a fitted tee underneath your slip dress. I like to layer with a cropped tee to reduce the bulk.
