Sub satin for the mundane stripes and florals. Once an element reserved for bridesmaid (or mother of the bride) dresses and special occasions, satin dresses are now more versatile. When paired with the right components, the right slip dress
Here’s my tips on how to style it:
work: A midi dress does best because a maxi might be too formal and above the knee is too short. Items to add: blazer, cape, ankle booties, pumps. Minimal jewelry otherwise it will be too much for daytime.
baby/wedding shower: The same combinations for work apply, but brighter colors and jewelry can be used to accentuate.
wedding/bar/bat/bnai mitzvah/quinceanera: The dress I am wearing below is my favorite formal choice. Because it’s a maxi it works in most situations from cocktail to black-tie.
going out: While you could wear any of the dresses to go out, find one that accentuates your favorite feature and work from there to create balance.
