A silky slip dress delivers every time and is the ultimate wardrobe workhorse when you want to wear a dress this winter. Look at just 4 of the ways I styled mine this winter with the other 9 pieces from my holiday capsule wardrobe. In THIS POST called Dress Outfits That Will Make You Want to Give Up Pants, I shared 3 easy slip dress outfit ideas that start with Amazon fashion finds under 25!
1 | Fitted Long Sleeve Turtleneck
A fitted long-sleeve top gives you the right to bear arms without bulking up your body. You can wear a silky slip dress with something over it too. See how I styled mine with 3 unexpected pieces from Amazon under $25 in this post.
These cotton styles from J.Crew would look so good with boots and tights.

Another way to recreate this layered look using high-low styling separates.
2 | Velvet Blazer
You can go a few different directions here depending on the circumstances. See how I styled this slightly oversized double-breasted velvet blazer as a jacket to give my outfit a street-style vibe without the bulk of an overcoat? For a dressy figure-flattering party outfit, pick a classic one or two-button blazer that nips at the waist.
This style comes in plus sizes too.
This style has been my best-seller this year. It’s the first 2 button option above. I found a few more sizes here and here.
Unique Picks From $38 to $500+. I have this short one-button $46 style in rust and green.

3 | Pullover Sweater
Let your silky slip dress do double duty as a skirt when you put a pullover sweater with it. Make sure to keep your proportions in check. Don’t pick a pullover that stops halfway through your outfit. It will cut you into unflattering 50/50 proportions. Instead, pick a slightly cropped style like this one from Free People that comes in 11 stunning shades. You can also belt an oversized sweater. Here are some other looks to style a silky slip dress.
4 | Embellished Button-Up
Silky satin and lace button-ups with pretty pussy bows pair nicely under a slip dress. If you’re bigger on top, they aren’t quite as bulky as a starchy white button-up.
If you’re wearing cool new nylons or opaque stockings, try tucking your button-up into the waistband to avoid lumps and bumps around your waist. Check out some more festive footwear in this post.
