Transitional Style: Slip Dress Styled Two Ways

 Slip dresses are the wardrobe hero I didn't know I needed until a few months ago, but now I am obsessed. You first saw me style this classy black slip dress earlier this summer in this post, and today I want to share two more ways to style this type of dress for the summer to fall transition. The first outfit is a dressy one that could be perfect for a cocktail wedding or date night, and the second is a more casual look that I think looks perfectly put together without trying too hard. Please continue reading to view more photos, outfit links, and more of my picks for slip dresses that I think would look fabulous styled for the summer to fall transition and beyond.

This first look is a great option for a fall wedding or date night. I styled this classy black slip dress with my favorite patent heels, a quilted bag that can be worn as a crossbody or clutch, and a silk/cashmere blend plaid blanket scarf for the cooler evenings ahead. I can also see swapping the wrap for a longer wool or cashmere coat for a bit more warmth.

I am pretty obsessed with this second look! Here I styled this slip dress with a denim jacket and sneakers for a more laid back vibe that could work for so many different occasions. I think this look is going to be on repeat for me this fall.

Since I still think that slip dresses are a closet staple and an easy piece to transition from summer to fall, I searched and found more beautiful options for you to view below. You can scroll through to see all of my picks, affordably priced with most currently under $100:

  1. I couldn't agree more how versatile this dress is. Both looks are so chic Amber!

  2. I can't even choose a favorite! Both looks are so cute on you! That dress is super flattering!

  3. Lovinggggg you in this slip dress! Va-va-VOOM! And it styled both ways- what a stunner!

    New post is up, hope you'll swing by!


  4. I agree with Jennifer - you look stunning in both of the outfits you styled that pretty BHLDN Cali Satin Charmeuse midi-dress in!

  5. It's both a beautiful look and up until today, I didn't know how versatile a slip dress can be. I have always thought of them as super dressy but you've proven me wrong and love the way it looks casually! I am a fan!

  6. Oh that dress is beautiful on you! I really like that first outift, it looks so classy, but the second outfit is my favourite - you made it look so perfectly casual and you look stunning in both outfits, but that is definitely my favourite. So much more of a versatile dress than I thought it would be! :)

    Hope you had a lovely weekend :)
