July 7th, 2016 at 2:00am

It’s no secret that trying to dress fashionably for the summer can be difficult. As the temperatures get higher, the more your closet feels limited when trying to pick ensembles that won’t leave you drenched in sweat. This makes it so easy to fall accustom to the sea of T-shirts, denim shorts and sandals that most people sport this season. But this Fashionista has a solution for this problem—through the use of a slip! That’s right, slip dresses are not just for wearing in the boudoir anymore. These lightweight silky dresses are perfect for conquering the summer blaze.

We’ve seen this trend not only in the catwalk shows of Céline and Yves Saint Laurent, but also by celebrities such as Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez. Though it can be a little intimidating to bring an intended provocative piece out in public, nothing tones down the sexy level off an outfit like a graphic T-shirt! You can layer the T-shirt over or underneath the slip, making it totally acceptable to wear during the day. But there are many ways to style a slip dress. You could tie a shirt around your waist, pair it with minimalist accessories, or throw on an open cardigan or an oversized blazer.

This Fashionista chose some great accessories to pair with this classic outfit! The white old-fashioned shoes and pastel yellow backpack give a vintage feel whereas the punk choker, mirrored sunglasses and mesh-paneled socks add edge to the ensemble. This juxtaposition of styles makes this look super fresh.

How To: The trick on wearing this lingerie garment out in public is to layer it over a t-shirt you definitely already have in your closet! Grab a few accessories—such as a vintage backpack or a heart choker—and you’re set in this sexy ‘90s look that will keep you cool, calm, and collected this summer.
