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.
