STEP UP Slip dresses with strappy sandals? Ex­pected. Opt for com­bat boots and sneak­ers, in­stead. There are two schools

to this: grunge, or ur­ban streetwear. While the for­mer is a ma­jor throw­back to the ’ 90s

(with Court­ney Love as the eter­nal poster girl), the ur­ban streetwear route gives props to Lily Allen’s days of pair­ing

prom dresses with Adidas shell toes. Grunge temptresses should look to Zoë Kravitz and Saint Lau­rent for cues, while Alexan­der Wang and Calvin Klein should be ev­ery ur­ban

fash­ion­ista’s style he­roes. Alexan­der Wang Spring/ Sum­mer ’16 BAL­ANC­ING

ACT When it comes to pulling off this sea­son’s sex­i­est trend, tex­ture and pro­por­tion can make or break your look. Com­bine el­e­ments that go against the slip to give it a more con­tem­po­rary up­date. Look to chunky knits or leather jack­ets. At Saint Lau­rent, “King of Cool” Hedi Sli­mane paired rugged biker jack­ets with del­i­cate lace, while Burberry showed us a new way to style their iconic trench. Saint Lau­rent Spring/ Sum­mer ’16

PLAY WITH AC­CES­SORIES As sexy as it is, the slip dress could some­times come off as a lit­tle ... sim­ple. The so­lu­tion? Dress it up with state­ment mak­ing ac­ces­sories such as ex­ag­ger­ated earrings or over­sized

cuffs to bring your whole look to­gether. Body chains and over­sized hoop earrings work best against a bare dé­col­letage, bring­ing the fo­cus back to your vis­age, like at Cé­line. For those who dare to go bold, wear a tiara à la Saint Lau­rent.

Is there re­ally a more fab­u­lous way to daz­zle the room?
