STYLED \ 21

slip dress | designlovefest

slip dresses are basically all i want to wear these days. simple to throw on, cute with a t-shirt under them, a denim jacket on top, a flannel tied around your waist or worn alone with sneakers or a simple sandal. comfortable for day and slightly sexy for evening. wear them with a pretty lacy trimmed bra underneath as it might peek out from time to time. if you’re curvy you might try a slip dress that’s cut on the bias, it make for a more fluid cut and lays agains the skin highlighting your curves. sometimes slip dresses can hang really straight and than catch at the hips, the bias works to prevent that. i’ve also included a few wrap slip dresses which tie at the waist and flatter curves as well. the thing to watch for in slip dresses is anything that looks too “slip” like, don’t go for short and lacy together, if you want a lace trim look for below the knee so it doesn’t look too much like a nightgown. – joanie

STRAPLESS

if you’re like me (and not one of the lucky few who can go braless) you understand the never ending search for a great strapless bra. well… i think i may have found one (fyi: this is not sponsored). i had seen mention of lively on social media before but never really looked into it because i’m cautious about buying bras online but i saw they had a strapless bra and decided to give it a shot. i ordered the lace version, in toasted almond and received it yesterday and i’m pretty thrilled about the fit, it’s secure enough to stay up but not too secure to cause lines and lumps. it’s also the right height so it covers you but won’t show at the top of your dresses. i ordered a 32D which fits pretty true to size but i will say that the band size runs a bit small so if you’re in between order up. they offer free shipping and returns on orders over $40 so i recommend ordering a couple sizes and styles. i find i have the best luck with fit when i give myself enough options to try on at home. and try it on with the dress or top you’d be wearing it with, make sure it fits well and works under several things in your closet. i also got the all day mesh bralette in size small which, as a 32D, fit perfectly. just a friendly bit of information for others on the strapless bra hunt! – joanie
