When I heard about slip dresses making a comeback I was not sure it would a trend I could pull off. All I could think about is that if I wear it would look like I was wearing my under clothes as my dress. Talk about something not looking right for a person claiming to be a modest fashion blogger! Lol I also felt that with my plus size figure I could not pull off such a look. It was not until a blog post at Myriad Musings by Saumya that it can be done and still be tasteful. 





How to Wear a Slip Dress
If you do not feel comfortable showing your arms ( I know I do not),you can simply wear a button down blouse under your dress. Choose a shirt that is not bulky show it would not be unflattering under your dress. A crop blouse would be even better.

I saw a picture of a very well dressed woman wearing a bell sleeve top under her
slip dress. I thought that top like that would look so feminine and had dimension to a slip dress. It also give you the coverage you need if you do not to bare it all.

  1. Love this! I've been wanting to try out a slip dress but always found it may be too revealing for me. I think I may just have to try out the white tee with it!

  9. The slip dress is such a statement! It is pretty revealing but wearing a denim jacket or even a leather jacket will add a different feel to the look and keep things PG!

    1. It is revealing but when it is layered it looks stylish yet modest! I like how you said PG which is what I was going for when finding these images and creating the looks! lol
