'3 Ways to Wear'- Black Slip

Roll up, roll up for the second installment of '3 Ways to Wear', this time featuring a black lace slip. If you have read my H&M Haul you will know that I have a bit on an obsession for slip dresses. I just think they are so classic and versatile and great from a night out to a day at the office. This paticular dress is from New Look and was mine for a small fee of £14.99.



1. Vintage Velvet- A perfect transition for Spring this velvet shirt adds a bit of luxury (and much needed warmth for those April days). Left open and paired with a feather necklace and moccasins, gives this black slip a slightly bohemian twist. Perfect for a day at school to a coffee with the boyfriend this look is definitely my favourite of the three.



 2. Cosy Florals- One of the great things about slips is that it is so easy just to throw on a jumper and a pair of boots and head out whilst still looking semi put together. I chose to pair the slip with an oversized jumper, chunky boots and these amazing patterened tights. This is the kind of outfit I love to wear when I am running errands as it is just so comfy and easy to move around in. And if you are anything like me who is always having to run to places late, movement can make or break an outfit!


3. Handbags and Gladrags- I am not usually a gal' for heels and clutches. In fact the only other time I have worn a dress and heels was for my Year 11 Prom (2 years ago...). And I am still like bambi on ice in heels. That having been said if I was going to dress up it would be in this outfit. You can't beat a LBD and paired with some killer red heels (thank heavens for Kurt Geiger) and statement jewellery you are ready to hit the town. In fact as I write this post I am getting ready to don this very outift again, work up a smokey eye and volumised lashes, and head out for a friends 18th cocktail party.
