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.
3 Ways To Wear A Slip Dress
Give It All Your Attention
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.
Nothing screams unbothered like cool shades and a printed silk scarf paired with an electric green summer slip dress. Make a bold statement by using accessories to elevate your at-home style adding more spice to everyday life. Lightweight and stunning, this slip dress is perfect for a backyard escape.
From Night To Day
With so much love of a 2-for-1 deal, who knew slip dresses can be so versatile? From sleep to rolling out of bed, if feeling extra lazy in the morning, keep on your slip dress from the night before, we won't judge you. Grab your purse and go, replacing the house slippers for a pair of low-top sneakers and be casually on your way!

The year was 2014, and the show was Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood. In its first season, we were reintroduced to Omarion and got a more intimate look into the man behind the B2K fame and hits like “Touch.” Audiences tuned in as they saw him balance being a son to his mom and a partner to his then-girlfriend Apryl Jones as they prepared to be first-time parents. And amid some of the franchise’s most iconic moments and fights, there was undeniable and unapologetic love shown between them pre-breakup.
Despite whatever issues we may or may not have been privy to because of the former couple being in the public eye, it’s clear that over the years following their 2016 split, Omarion and Apryl have done their best to keep “family” at their center. It’s why now in the year 2023 (and past messiness pushed aside, chile), it is not all that surprising to see Omarion and Apryl posted up in Disney World with their two kids like they’re "post to be" because, well, it's all love.
Omarion and Apryl made headlines over the weekend after posting to social media some behind-the-scenes moments of their "first family trip" together.
Together for a handful of years, having kids together (Megaa and Ame'i) is the kind of commitment that you keep for a lifetime, regardless of whether the romantic part of a relationship ends. And while some speculated that their very public family outing over the weekend possibly hinted that the romantic aspect of their relationship might have rekindled, it could just be another healthy example of co-parenting (especially because Apryl is still reportedly booed up with actor Taye Diggs). And lawd knows the world needs as much of that as it can get.
It is also a sign of growth and is in alignment with what Omarion shared in the past about the status of his co-parenting relationship with Apryl in 2022:
"We’re still in a transformative state. Like I said, I’m the type of person who likes to leave room for some new ideas, some different methods. I’m all for that. But we are in a transformative state right now."
Though there might have been ill will between them at some point due to how things ended and where things were emotionally (that eventually led to resurfaced animosity between him and a B2K member that Apryl eventually became involved with), the famed unbothered king doesn't don that name for nothing and has publicly stated that there's no "ill will" because he's "moved on." He has also stated that he will never speak against her publicly because she is the mother of his kids. Perhaps that has also led
In an article on our platform, "Omarion Speaks On Where Co-Parenting With Apryl Jones Stands Now & I Have 6 Solid Takeaways From It," we covered his interview with Sway in the Morning where the artist hinted at a reason that might have caused the romantic love aspect of their journey to come to an end:
“Not to generalize women, but you know, umm, sometimes women think that you know, love stories are supposed to be this kind of like, happy thing and this, ‘Oh we vibin,’ and you know, we, we get married, and we have a family,’ but it’s really, it’s really not like that. You know, umm, that wasn’t my experience. L
"ooking back on the history of how I viewed relationships, like, my mom is not married, you know, my Nana was married at a very young age…like, steppin’ back and realizin’ like, ‘Oh, your love style, your support, the things that you actually need, you know, is different from what you perceive. And it allowed me to really see, you know, what it is that I truly want, and it is acceptance. It is love. That’s what love is.”
However, wanting different things doesn't stop have to stop the way people show up in their children's lives as parents. As they make strides towards being better co-parents, Omarion shared in an interview earlier this year about the importance of moving forward for the kids:
"I will say we have been moving towards a better relationship at this particular point in time, for the kids. It’s all good, it was just something we went through. I think as long as respect is over-stood and appreciated within the scope of the blended family then I think you can virtually get through anything.”
A trip to Disney World as a family is a beautiful step in their healthy co-parenting journey.
