  • Haven’t You Heard? There Is A New Trend to Tackle This Winter and Its Slipped Straight from The Catwalk Into Our Favorite Stores.

    This season, lingerie dressing is big news, and the breakout trend is undoubtedly the slinky slip dress.

    Every high end designer worth their salt championed the look on the SS16 runway, from silky creations at Celine to beautify ivory creations complete with lace trim at Givenchy – the message was clear, if you invest in one trend this season, let it be the slip dress.

    This trend takes some clever styling to ensure your look is more sultry than slept in. This trend is all about spaghetti straps and silky fabrics, but that doesn’t mean it’s only suitable for evening events.

    Here at Marie Claire HQ you can guarantee we will find a way to make this look office-appropriate. Whether that’s teaming a dusky pink style with our favorite grey jersey tee, or layering a pin striped style (Topshop)over a ribbed polo – there are various ways to tackle this trend.

    Hair and make-up choices should also be carefully considered when it comes to completing the all-important look. Minimal make-up and a super-sleek hairstyle will ensure you earn some major cool points.

    In terms of shoes, anything goes. From a crisp white trainer to a sky-scraping stiletto or a bad gal shoe boot – there’s no need to overthink your footwear.

    We’re not asking you to brave the cold without a cover up, either. The slip looks even cooler under a beaten up leather jacket, a silky bomber or a fluid trench coat.

    Don’t be left behind the trends this season and slip into something a little more current.
