The uber-90s, lingerie-inspired slip dress is one of the trendiest garments out there right now, but because of its inherent sexiness, it can be tricky to find an option that's appropriate for everyday situations (especially if you're well-endowed in certain areas like I am). To my dismay, many of the ones I've tried over the past couple of seasons look like little more than straight-up underwear on me, even if they're not clingy or are totally lace-free. While I wouldn't be opposed to giving off such heavy boudoir vibes at a very dark nightclub or perhaps layered on top of a short-sleeved bodysuit, I've been on the hunt for a slip dress that is demure enough for day — whether I'm running around on market appointments or meeting a friend for lunch.
At a recent Cuyana preview, I think I found The One: This silk dress has just the feel I'm going for, with details that tone the sultriness down a few notches. Aside from the below-the-knee hemline, it has a cool, cut-out panel in the back to give it a fashion-forward touch, as well as a slit at the leg — just in case I do want to wear it for date night. Plus, the seam in the back snakes along the curve of your body adding a sexy touch that's subtle instead of overt.
Silk slip dress, $260, available at Cuyana.
