How to Wear a T-Shirt Under a Slip Dress

One of my favorite trends at the moment is the oh-so-90s t-shirt under a slip dress. Or really, anything under a slip dress. But as you may know, it's not the easiest thing to pull off in a stylish way. So, how do you wear a slip dress layered over a tee? I'll break it down for you right now :)

1. Choose a dress that is body-skimming, not body-conscious

The perfect slip dress will have room to layer the tee/turtleneck/blouse underneath without it showing through. You also want to make sure that the dress is tight enough to be figure flattering, so a style that is perfectly body-skimming is the ultimate silhouette.

2. Layer with a fitted tee 

I love this look with either a fitted tee, or one that mirrors the fit of the dress. By this, I mean that it skims the body so that it hangs nicely underneath the dress and doesn't bunch up to show through the thin material. No one likes readjusting their clothes all day and feeling uncomfortable in what they're wearing. That's never a good look.

3. Opposing Necklines work best 

This trend tends to look the best when you have a high neckline on your tshirt with a low one on your dress. There's something about the suggestion of a sexy low cut camisole that is made day appropriate by adding a sporty tee underneath. Also, a v-neck with another v-neck is hard to do right. It just tends to get a little confusing when trying to make them compliment each other.

4. Keep it sporty 

My favorite way to wear this look is with sneakers and a backpack. I didn't actually bring the latter on this trip, but I think that would have been to perfect way to complete the look (like this one here). And sneakers with a slipdress is probably the ultimate way to play it cool in something that could easily look like you're getting ready for bed. Nothing I like better than opposites like this. To be honest, I'm kinda loving sneakers with absolutely everything at the moment. Such a New York cool girl way to dress.

5. Add some 90s accessories 

Leather or suede chokers are the ultimate way to top this look off. It adds that badass 90s vibe that this look demands.
