Guide to taking not-so-obvious counterparts for your humble slip dress

Fall is fast approaching and you might have been spending an awful lot of extra time inside your house due to all the rain. Well, we'll say put your time to good use and play some fun rounds of dress-up with the favourite slip dresses in your wardrobe. Partnering them with some not-so-obvious choices might just help you get ahead of the fashion curve and ease your transition through the season flawlessly. Thanks to Kylie, Rihanna, and Miley that we aren't facing any dearth of options. Explore these fabulous looks below.

Kylie’s sporty-corporate look | Kylie Jenner is known for pulling off risky styles that a commoner won’t even dream of attempting. But every now and then she steps out in a low key look which we can totally get behind! Kylie is the spitting image of grace in a beige slip dress paired with an oversized white tailored jacket. The details of this look are unmissable. She contrasted the femininity of the billowing slip dress with the boxy purse and chunky kicks. And of course, her signature glossy slick back bun seals her polished look. You can easily recreate this look with the Guinevere silk-satin slip dress from The Row and the Tirsi Wool Tuxedo Blazer by Max Mara. Set off the ladylike outfit with the well-constructed Zoe Leather Shoulder Bag by Danse Lente and Diamond/F Leather Sneakers by Jimmy Choo.

Rihanna’s just-out-of-the-bed look | Count on Rihanna to execute any statement outfit with panache be it a gown made of only Swarovski crystals or blue lipstick. As long as the clothes express something about her, Riri is game for anything! Hence, it doesn’t come as a surprise when Rihanna nailed the ‘right out of bed’ look in a buttery pink slip dress with lace detailing. We love that she ditched heels in favour of a pair of converse shoes. The tousled hair tucked up in a bun, a denim jacket thrown over the shoulders, and some neck chains complete the cute look. Redo this outfit with a bias cut maxi dress with crossover straps and a cropped denim jacket for a fun day out!

Miley’s laidback-cool look | Miley Cyrus promenades the street on a sunny day in a simple black slip dress layered over a cami and dishevelled hair which gives an absolute a cool ‘devil may care’ vibe. What really accentuated her look was the stacked raffia tote bag that she was carrying around – and the red bandana tied over the bags’ handles was the perfect amount of colour pop required to make this look interesting. We suggest channelling Miley’s nonchalance with some help from the makers at Loewe who have bestowed the world with the trend of handwoven raffia totes. Stay true to the understated look in an identical Satin Slip Dress by Vince, Interactive Sequined Leather Sneakers from Hogan, and an Esmee Cropped Ribbed Stretch-Jersey T-Shirt
