STYLE GURU STYLE: Slip Into Something a Little More Comfortable

STYLE GURU STYLE: Slip Into Something a Little More Comfortable

Fall has finally arrived and is in full swing here in Ohio (cue the praising hand emoji)! If you know anything about me, it’s that no matter how warm it is outside, if the world is telling me that it’s thick sweater and pumpkin spice season, I will bury myself in as many layers as my body will allow. It’s so incredibly easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of cozy fashion that fall brings, but just because the temperature has dropped a few degrees doesn’t mean you have to completely throw out your warm weather wardrobe!

The ultimate ’90s babe fashion trend this summer was definitely the signature slip dress. Celebrities from Rihanna to Kendall Jenner, and even the little queen herself, North West, have all been seen rocking this simple piece of fabric. After I purchased my first slip dress I finally understood what all the hype was about. Just imagine the ease of being able to throw on virtually a satin nightgown and to immediately radiate flirtatious confidence that will leave every jaw in the room touching the floor!

For this look, I decided to wear my champagne slip dress and black knee high suede boots, paired with a vintage denim jacket to give off some Kim K vibes. Since this outfit is all about simplicity, I tied the front of the dress in a knot to bring a little more individuality to the look. What’s perfect about the pairing of a short dress and tall boots is that your legs stay warm, while you get to show off a little more skin on your top half. This is an easy way for you to transition into the chillier fall nights when you want to have a little warmth on you, but still kill your Saturday girls night out! Another way I showcased my own style within this trend is by creating my own choker! I simply cut a strip of fabric from a black suede skirt purchased at a 99 cent thrift store, frayed the edges and tied it around my neck. Super easy! Chokers have never been more in style and what’s cooler than being able to say you made your own?! To top it all off, I put my hair in a messy top knot and stuck to neutral based makeup to complement the easiness of the slip dress.
