5 Ways to Style a Slip Dress for School

Slip dresses are the ultimate summer staple—but don't put them away just yet.

Just because colder weather is upon us doesn'mean it's time to say goodbye to them. There are plenty of fashionable, fall-suitable ways to style slip dresses—all of which are appropriate for school. Check out the five ways to style a slip dress for school:

1. Pair It With a Long-Sleeve Turtleneck

When the air is brisk or the AC's on full blast, you'll feel nice and cozy in a warm turtleneck. Worn underneath or on top of a slip dress, this outfit is comfortable and stylish. Keep the rest of your ensemble low-key by pairing it with plain sneakers and minimal jewelry.

2. Wear a Cropped Plain, Tight-Fitting Tee Underneath

If the weather is still on the hotter side, all you need is a light, tight-fitting crop underneath your slip dress. Opt for contrasting colors—aka, if you have a black slip, pair it with a white tee. The simple combination is cute and super easy to throw on if you're in a rush. Pair it with knee-high boots or wedge sandals.

3. Pair It With a Chunky, Hip Skimming Sweater

Layers for fall are certainly not unheard of, and we are onboard. Grab your chunkiest sweater and throw it on top of your slip dress. If the sweater is cropped, it might throw off the dimensions of your look, so try to find one that either skims your hips or is longer. Wear this with any shoes that cover up your toes!

4. Sport a Button-Down Beneath It

A more sophisticated look would be wearing a button-down top underneath the slip. Leave the first few buttons undone for a casual, easy-breezy style. We think it would be cute to wear this with layered necklaces and knee-high boots or over-the-knee boots. You'll look like the ultimate fashionista.

5. Style It With a Graphic Tee

Since you definitely have an arsenal of graphic tees to choose from in your closet, it shouldn't be too hard to throw this outfit together. Grab your fave one and style it underneath a slip dress. It's best to go for a tee that has graphics at the top of the shirt, that way, you'll be able to get a better glimpse of what's going on. Pair it with sneakers for a casual look or booties for an elevated appearance.
