Slip ser­vice; Vapour trail; It’s a sign; On re­peat; Red hot.

That tis­sue-thin sliver of a thing, the slip dress, is worth ob­sess­ing over, as proved by its 24/7 ver­sa­til­ity.

Get­ting in early

Di­alling down the di­aphanous fac­tor is a must for early morn­ing en­gage­ments. Play it ca­sual in re­laxed cod­i­fiers, denim and sneak­ers.

Off the clock

When off duty your at­tire should de­note a de­meanour as breezy as the slip. Es­padrilles and a carryall tele­graph do-not-dis­turb vibes.

Nine to five

Struc­tured tai­lor­ing pro­vides the tem­plate to be apro­pos at the of­fice. A slip slink­ing be­neath a blazer avoids be­ing risqué if paired with a crisp cot­ton shirt.

After eight

The slip dress in its nat­u­ral sar­to­rial habi­tat is brought to life with min­i­mal ex­tras. A glint of gilded jewellery and a vampy stiletto are the only com­pany needed.
