The Black Slip Dress

Every wardrobe needs an LBD, and I think the plainer the better to maximise wear, as a fuss free black dress is easier to dress down.

  1. Black Square Neck Slip Dress – Topshop £35
  2. Pale Pink Blazer with Linen – Topshop £49
  3. Pearl Hair Clip – Amazon £1.30
  4. Pearl Tote Bag – Skinny Dip £30
  5. Ruffle Black Mules – Topshop £65

This dress arrived last night and I am so pleased with it, I thought I would share it on the blog. It’s the sort of dress that you’ll end up wearing loads – perfect for holiday (a simple black dress is a holiday wardrobe staple for me) and you could easily dress it up for a smarter occasion with a heel and a blazer. I really love this pale pink blazer from Topshop and these ruffle heels which have such a designer look to them. If I hadn’t recently purchased my Mango heels with their pointed toe, I would be snapping these up.

Pop a knit over the top and you have this season’s must have slip skirt and wear a simple tee underneath to dress it down.

  1. Oversized Denim Jacket – HM £34.99
  2. Satin Slip Dress – Topshop (as above)
  3. Sunglasses – HM £6.99
  4. Balenciaga Tote – £695
  5. Vans – £36.99

    But you can’t wear a bra with it! What would you suggest?

    If you need more support and a large cup size I’d suggest looking at what Bravissimo has to offer.

    I’m definately in for a lbd, but in my case the b is for blue, or more precisely navy. Black is to harsh for my colouring, so I just swap it for navy – more challenging as there’s less choice. At the moment I’m on the look out for a navy shirt dress, again it can be dressed up or down.💕

    On the picture there is dress with long sleeves. Where is this dress from or is it a black top over the slip dress?
