Elevate Your Stay-At-Home Style With The Slip Dress

The slip dress is here to replace your quarantine loungewear.

Style

With the majority of our wardrobe being untouched these last few months, the time has arrived to begin easing back into those neglected closet staples, ending the steady rotation of the knitwear and sweatpants we've grown so accustomed to. Worn for both comfort and leisure, the slip dress is a stylish alternative to relaxed and casual loungewear inside and outdoors. Even as we climb out from under stay-at-home orders, comfort is still important to the everyday woman, yet the idea of dressing for fun again is becoming more of a reality. The slip dress not only gracefully drapes our natural curves but it's also a canvas of opportunity to accessorize and effortlessly elevate your stay-at-home style. Read on to learn how.

Prints are always fun and exciting, adding a personal spin to the concept of a slip dress. Combined with soft tones and satin material, the draped bust and midi length of the slip dress is a modest yet chic approach to loungewear for all ages. Pair this with dainty jewelry or nothing at all for a dress that is stunning all on its own.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
