How to Wear a Slip Skirt 5 Ways

How to Wear a Slip Skirt with Lemon Stripes

I finally jumped onto the slip skirt trend and I’m happy I did. It’s a perfect summer to fall transition piece that can be worn in so many different ways. I bought mine at J.Crew (shocker), but there are a ton of Bias cut slip skirts to choose from. I linked 11 good ones below! If you’re wondering what Bias cut means (I had to look it up), it’s when the fabric on a skirt or dress is cut at a diagonal angle which helps accentuate body curves, and allows for the fabric to drape in a specific way.

I love the way this skirt sits on my hips and flows at the bottom. It makes me feel pretty and feminine, without being at all tight or revealing. I recommend sizing down if you want to wear this at your waist like I do. If you want to wear it at your hips, it runs TTS.

Yesterday I wore it to a meeting and decided in that moment that it’s going to be a staple in my August-October wardrobe. I started trying it on with different things and had Julia Dags shoot all five outfits that I styled before our photoshoot and here they are! The outfit above is what I wore yesterday. It was hot out, but I brought the sweater blazer in case the AC was on blast (which it was!).

The necklace worn throughout is my ASHA zodiac pendant necklace.

Outfit 2: J.Crew Slip Skirt / Dudley Stephens fleece / Sole Society slingbacks (gifted)

I realized after the fact that I should have paired this outfit with booties for a crisp fall day when you can still have bare legs but need some warmth to balance it out. They’re in my attic with off-season clothes but I’ll show you what it looks like whenever I make my switch this year. I love the pairing of my chunky Dudley Stephens fleece turtleneck with the delicate lines of the skirt. It looked slightly frumpy but the belt rounded out the look.

Pink on pink on pink? Yes please! And I wonder where my daughter gets her love for the color… Bootsie had to jump in for a cameo too.

Outfit 4: J.Crew Slip Skirt / Cami NYC top / Jack Rogers sandals (gifted)

Despite the tan lines, this outfit makes me feel feminine and powerful for some reason. Maybe it’s the feeling of silk from head to toe, but I’m into it. I’ve had this Cami NYC lace tank top for 5 or 6 years now and it has been a staple in my wardrobe every single season.

Outfit 5: J.Crew Slip Skirt / Everlane tee (which still remains my favorite white tee) / Everlane Treads (gifted).

These sneakers were a gift from Everlane and at first I thought I’d never wear them because they aren’t my usual style but I’ve found myself reaching for them more and more lately. I love how they dress down the skirt. I can see myself wearing this look more often than any of the others in this post. It feels the most like me!

    Is the skirt breathable? I’ve been hesitant because I feel my legs would be all sweaty in it lol
