Little breezy slip dresses are my favorite for summer. Not too tight, not too short, and perfect for warmer temps…so easy. Here’s how I’m wearing them now, and how I’ll be wearing them when the weather gets colder.
Now: Slip Dress + A Bralette & Cute Sandals
Don’t want to have to wear a strapless bra? I feel you. Sometimes they’re a necessity, but they’re definitely not the most comfortable–especially when the temps get crazy high. (I’m still on the hunt for The Most Comfortable Strapless Bra Ever–let me know if you have a suggestion!) Fortunately, there are so many bralette options with cute straps that give the girls enough support (like this one that has great reviews) and are fine to wear peeking out from underneath. (I would just avoid a thong in this situation…I learned that the hard way when a stiff breeze came up–but luckily my photographer was Zack. He wasn’t mad about it.) Right now I throw it on with some cute (flat) sandals and go.
Later: Slip Dress + A Sweater, Denim Jacket & Boots
Are you guys getting sick of seeing this sweater yet? Because I’m not getting sick of wearing it…definitely an MVP this summer (and it’s on sale!). I also like the idea of a longer tunic (maybe turtleneck?) sweater and tights or faux leather leggings for when it gets even colder. Granted, most of my sweaters are put away for the summer, but you guys get the general idea, right? I like the asymmetrical hemline with the taller boots, but booties would be cute too. (Oh and this denim jacket from ABLE? Favorite. Denim. Jacket. Ever.)
Bonus: Slip Dress + A Classic Leather Jacket
Of course, the easiest thing would be to just throw on a jacket…and I wanted to share this leather one from ABLE with you guys. After wearing their denim jackets pretty much all the time with all the things, I thought I’d try their leather moto. It’s a perfect mid-range (real) leather jacket that gets better with time–and ABLE is one of those companies you can feel good about supporting. (If you’re interested in a vegan-friendly option that’s more budget-friendly, this is one of my favorites, and it’s on sale!)
