Every Gal Needs a Black Slip Dress

I have been on the lookout for the perfect black slip dress for a while. I knew it would be a major wardrobe staple for me as almost every single black dress in my past has.

But I wasn’t looking for just any black slip dress. I wanted the perfect one of course. I did end up getting this super affordable lace slip dress a few months ago and I already wear it all the time, but I wanted one that was a heavier fabric that felt more professional and substantial (and I also wanted a non-lace option).

Enter this Vince slip dress I’m wearing in these photos. If you don’t know the brand Vince, you need to get acquainted. It’s basically all high quality, well-cut basics. Everything I’ve ever bought from them I’ve worn constantly. I know this black slip dress will be no different.

I love the weight of the charmeuse fabric. It’s not too heavy for summer but it’s substantial enough to feel luxurious and it lays well on the body.

The cut is very flattering (you can have curvy hips and still wear this dress!). I wear it with my leather jacket mostly, but any sort of jacket will work. Especially in the summer a cool suede jacket or bomber jacket. The options are endless really. It’s the perfect canvas of a dress to change up the look with a million different pieces — shoes, jewelry, jackets over top, shirts under the dress, a sweater on top of the dress.

I’m telling you — you need a black slip dress in your life. One that fits you well and that you love. It will make getting dressed so much easier, because you know you can always reach for it.
